Timperley vs. Poynton.
Our first match of the season and the first match for the new combined team. Well, we had a steady start but then went 1 goal down but thanks to a Michael Bauer goal we ended even at the end of Q1 (1-1). The second quarter proved to be a similar story, with Poynton getting 2 more goals but fortunately Jack Cox did the business (2 goals), resulting in a 3-3 scoreline. Poynton grew in confidence in Q3 and we ended 3-4 down with an injured goalie, luckily James S was on standby and we went into the last quarter with all to play for. The team finally kicked into gear led by Cameron Parkes - illustrating in his play what being a good captain means! Cameron got 2 into the net, Tim Nicol got his first of what should be many this season and Jack got another one in. Despite Poynton pulling one back, Timperley were victorious with a final score of 7-5. Well done lads - as Cameron said - you left it a bit late, and we need to watch the catching and passing as there were too many errors. However, it's early in the season and we won!
