This team has put in some pretty impressive performances over the years, but this has to go down as one of the best. The girls were brilliant in every position of the pitch and they blew Cheadle away with a fantastic 30-3 victory.
We only had 10 players, so no subs, but there were no weaknesses in the line-up or performance. The defence was patient and disciplined - despite the scoreline we had to defend robustly for long periods - and the attack was swift and clinical. And as a team we looked after the ball really well, very rarely wasting possession.
Most pleasing of all was that the girls rotated positions without disturbing the flow of the game and they sustained the performance over the full game as you can see from the breakdown of the score by quarter:
Q1 Timperley 7 - Cheadle 0
Q2 Timperley 9 - Cheadle 0
Q3 Timperley 7 - Cheadle 2
Q4 Timperley 7 - Cheadle 1
Goals / assists:
Sophie P - 2/1
Charlotte - 1/0
Karina - 1/2
Elsa - 0/0 - (absolutely excellent defence and transition)
Katie - 5/2
Sophie H - 3/2 (and excellent on the draw!)
Henny - 9/12
Alice - 6/6
Lotta - 3/5 (great first game for u18s!)
Next game is home to Stockport on 31st Oct. Please try to plan ahead and make yourself available if you can for this game and all of the others. We don't have many games, and despite the result, it would be much better to have a full team turnout!
Well done Timperley!
