This morning it rained, and rained, and then rained some more........
We could have easily cancelled the game, but both teams were willing to give it a go, and it turned out to be quite a good workout for the U12A. Playing 10 a side on half the astro (the other half being under water) was always going to be a challenge, but we certainly got some benefit from this morning's game.
Rochdale, though lacking basic ball handling skills in certain areas, were a well drilled team who set up properly and posed us some problems - the scoreline does not really reflect that they are one of the better teams we have faced this season.
Timperley scored some good goals this morning, and the whole team got good game time, with the defence and goalkeeper dealing with a lot of pressure from a couple of Rochdale's more able players.
As ever, we just need to polish our ball handling a bit more - we have the ability to win trophies this season, and we should be aiming to do that playing solid, error free lacrosse.
