U12s at Home to Cheadle

As we face good quality opposition each week, our squad is getting tested and gaining more and more experience.  We faced a good side from Cheadle and found ourselves quickly down by 3, without even getting the ball into their half, and with a little rally towards the end of Q1 we certainly didn't have the best of starts, coming in at Q1 2-6 down.  With a little reshuffle in midfield, and a change at face we found a good Q2 was within us.  Together with some self belief we managed to wrestle the initiative  and bring the scores back to 7-7 with some excellent work complete with good execution in front of goal.  With the midfield working hard in Q2, we do have a tendency to run out of steam, and found ourselves in familiar territory of struggling in the latter stages of games.  Today was no different, and a 0-3 Q3, followed by a 2-3 Q4 left us on the wrong end of 9-13 defeat.  I felt there was something missing today, a little ingredient we couldn't put our finger on, our lacrosse wasn't as fluent as it had been this far into the season.  Goals from William, Cameron (5) and Jay (3).
