1st match of the season for both U15 Timperley teams
Great first game - need to keep this up.
This is another age group where we entered two teams this year. Unlike the U18s the U15s play each other only once for the league and I made sure we played this game first to prevent any future questions.
We had 22 players for the two teams. The Blue team is mainly made out of the U13s that have moved up and the White team is last years U15s. I always thought this would be great game and so it was.
First quarter the Blues went up 5 - 0. They played some direct attack that the Whites were not organised enough in defence to respond. Second quarter Whites pulled back and score was 5 - 5. They sorted their defence and combined well in attack to pull back. Third and fourth quarters were much closer. Blues went ahead again which the Whites never pulled back. The final score was 8 - 6 for the Blues. Whites had number of shots come of the post but their sustained pressure in the final quarter did not result in any goals so Blues came on top.
We also had some U13s playing for the U15s and they all did very well.
