U 14s B team Cup Match vs Sheffield (away) by Paul Peachey

A valiant effort by our B team Cup squad against a larger Sheffield squad than when we played the A team against them earlier in the season. We were tight on numbers with 3 down from our usual squad. In the first quarter, we went 4 down but matters could have been far worse if not for some excellent saves from Adam in goal. The team settled in the second quarter and only one goal was conceded with the defense taking shape and a few runs through to goal beginning up front. In the third, Sheffield, with a commanding lead, began to go in harder and unfortunately Oliver took the full brunt of a take out from one of the larger opposition players. After a few minutes on the touch line to catch his, breath….Oliver stepped back into play and after a great pass from Tom, turned, twisted and aimed for goal……..SUCCESS…we were on the score sheet thanks to a brilliant goal from Ollie! Sheffield got a few more in but we saw strong play from Freddie – whose athleticism took him to both ends of the pitch and he was often in the heart of the action. Tom, who worked hard all match, popped in a well earned No. 2 goal in the last quarter. Harry and George provided some good play with Will also getting in the action on the wings. Theo provided strong leadership which helped the defense in particular and Seb and James also did their bit against a strong Sheffield team. Final word goes to Adam, who had an excellent game and not only impressed us but also the opposition with his numerous saves! Well done lads – a hard match but we were proud of your effort and play (Final score 18-2).
