We have lost to Mellor at Brabyns and beaten them at TLC and now the clear challenge was to beat them on the notorious Brabyns Park pitch.
Unfortunatley, Timperley were not the first to score with the Mellor 28, one of the best players in the region, firing in the opener. However, Timperley held their nerve and it wasn't long before Timperley equalled. 1-1 remained the score for the quarter.
The second quarter was eventful with Timperley going into the lead - a lead they maintained througout the rest of game. Timperley kept scoring, Mellor fough back but never equalled. 3 - 5 second quarter score. The third quarter showed strong defensive play from Timperley holding the Mellor attack and up front Timperley advanced their lead by 2 more. Score was 3 - 8 at the end of the third quarter.
The final quarter proved to be as intense as the game so far with 3 more goals for Timperley and 2 more for Mellor resulting in an 11-5 win for Timperley.
James had his game of the season in goal making crucial saves in every quarter and we saw strong play from the whole team with everone putting in that extra bit off effort that made all the difference.
Mr Toby Hawksley 5 goals
Mr Cameron Parks & Mr Tim Nicol 2 goals each
Mr Alex Winton & Mr Jack Cox 1 goal each
