U16s Boys Match vs. Rock - Sunday 31st July

This was billed as the 'cruncher' of all our matches. Following a full on fun weekend with our hosts - were our boys going to put up a fight?

Unfortunately we went 1 down within the first few minutes, however just before quarter time, Myles did the business and scored a brilliant goal with Tim assisting. We then grew in confidence taking a 3-1 lead in Q2 with our guest US player.....'the demolisher' that is Tyler scoring 2 goals.

Q3 saw the opposition recover, pulling one back but the Timperley D (Ged / Dan / Josh / James) were doing a cracking job but some of our attack disciplines were slipping.

We pulled 1 more back but alas Rock put 2 more past us resutling in 4-6 final score.

Despite this the lads should be proud of their performance as their skills are building and the matches are proving a great and popular spectacle for all the supporters.

Sunday 31 July Girls Matches

It was a steamy but lovely sunny day when the Timperley gils teams played the 'Diamonds' on Sunday at Gerstell.

The girls worked hard and are improving every match but came up against a well disciplined side in Diamonds. Both teams performed better in the first half - a reflection of the great weekends that our host have provided, then fading away in the 2nd half.

U16s lost 5-9 / U14s lost 4-12. (Match report: Gillian Healey)

Friday 29th - Girls Srimmage with Maryland Express

A fun day was had by all on Friday - with guest goal appearances from Scott & Magda.

Friday U16s vs. Westminster

A strong performance against a Westminster team. We battled back from 2-5 down to draw even by half time. We then edged forward in the 3rd quarter but despite battling to the end, our boys went down in the final quarter 7-9 and managed to pull one back to concede by just 1 goal. Final score 8-9 to Westminster boys. It was a close battle with Barney, Myles & Joe putting up particularly strong performances.

U14's Friday 29th

As seems to be the trend for the U14's, this was a thrilling match againts Gamber. Yet despite the 14's third successive victory in this five match tour, Timperley got off to a rather lethargic start due in no small part to the 102 degree heat.

Yet in typical fashion the tourists dug deep and clawing back a small deficit, they belately began to show what resolve we know them to have and slowly but surely started to take the game to a very mobile and physical Gamber.

In an encounter that had the coaches sweating a little more than usual in pursuit of another victory the game was an end to end encounter of the highest order with quality lacrosse being played by both.

With the boys expelling more fluid than they were taking in, the whilste finally blew ending this match with a close and hard fought 4-6 win. Well done to the U14's and to the Coaches who's rotation was key to maintaining strength in the energy sapping heat. Well done boys.
