U19 Match Report - Timperley v Mellor - Sunday 22nd November - Match Report by Peter Forster

Sunday saw the start of more seasonal weather for the Under 19 season with heavy rain and wind. A hardy group of supporters left the warmth and comfort of their homes to see Timperley take on Mellor after a delayed start. 10 man squad Mellor showed they would be no pushover and took an early lead which shook Timperley out of their lethargy and they began to dominate. Jim Anderson levelled the score with a left hand shot after a dodge and then added another with a right hand one. Will Hawksley, playing in attack, showed good movement and anticipation to take a goal and then his feed for Ollie White saw Timperley with a 4 - 1 quarter lead.
The wet surface made play difficult and the tempo in the second quarter dropped and some wayward shooting meant that there was only a goal for each side. 5 - 2
A half time talk kick from Justin and Rory saw the Timperley players up their desire to win and four goals followed and the defence limited Mellor to one shot (which did result in a goal). Tommy Kirkland hustled well and Captain Tim Blower had a couple of sprints upfield to start attacks and it was a much better quarter against a tiring Mellor side. 9 - 3
The last quarter saw good play from Timperley with Mike Smith continuing to impress in his long stick midi role - he reads the game well and is quick to pick up the loose ball and passes well to transform defence into attack. Matt Raven is solid and strong in defence, Will Hawksley had a good game playing out of position in attack and Larry Poole showed several bursts of his speed to intercept balls before they reached the Mellor attack. Final score 12 - 4

33 shots, 19 on goal, 12 goals
19 face offs, 16 won
3.5 minutes penalties.
