Cheadle 7 - Timperley 20

This was an excellent all-round performance and a great start to the season.

Every single one of the girls played their part today. No performance is perfect, but it is difficult to find any faults with a disciplined and skilful performance.

Cheadle is a strong team and we played without any subs so it was important to manage the game well and look after the ball once we regained possession. We gave away very few fouls, but defended with strength, and there we very few misplaced passes - for the most part we only lost possession with a shot at goal. Excellent.

20 goals scored tells you about the strength of our attacking play. To concede 7 goals only tells you part of the story defensively: Cheadle had a lot of possession, but we were focused and kept concentration in defence, giving very few opportunities away. On top of that Rebekah made 9 saves!
The first quarter finished 4-2 to Timperley, thanks to good quality finishing and 3 or 4 saves by Rebekah, but a superb second quarter killed the game - scoring 6 goals without conceding (and another 3 saves by Rebekah) - to reach half-time 10-2 up. We managed the game well after that and saw it out relatively comfortably despite a strong rally from Cheadle.

I will start to track some defensive stats in future, but for now goals and assists:
Alice - 3 goals, 5 assists
Niamh - 3 assists
Jess - 4 goals, 2 assists
Sophie - 3 goals, 2 assists
Jas - 5 goals, 2 assists
Henny - 5 goals, 4 assists
