Tyldesley 21 Warrington 5 B&D (14&u)

Warrington’s 14 & under team visited Tyldesley on Friday 9th November 2012. With three players committed at RTC it was always going to be a tough match for the remaining players. On a positive note it was chance to have a look at some more new players. Dom Crawley made his debut for Warrington and made quite an impression. The first quarter saw the older and faster Tyldesley hit Warrington on the break continuously giving Adam Farini in goal little chance to do anything about it. Tyldesley scored seven goals with Jacob Wass and Sam Cooper snatching a consolation goal each.

In the second quarter we changed things around Ben Daley went into goal releasing Adam Farini bolstering Warrington in attack and defence. Warrington conceded five goals and again Jacob Wass scored. The quarter ended 5-1 to Tyldesley.

Our core of older players worked really hard but with only four players with any experience of competitive games it was a steep learning curve for some of Warrington’s younger players. To her credit Emily Bowater on several occasions got free from her marker. In the third quarter more of the same with Tyldesley on the break at every opportunity. Stanley Mainwaring got some reward for all his hard work and Sam Cooper added a second.  As in the first quarter the score was 7-2 in the third.

In the final quarter although our eight players looked exhausted they battled to the end. Although we didn’t score we restricted Tyldesley to two goals. Our players showed real character throughout and although the final score was 21-5 the team finished on a high.

Jacob Wass was player of the match with some excellent covering back and scoring two excellent goals.

My thanks also to Jacob Wass for missing his RTC session to play this match for Warrington.

Warrington Team included Adam Farini (13), Ben Daley (12), Jacob Wass (14), Stanley Mainwaring (13), Dom Crawley (14), Emily Bowater (12), Abigail Collins (12), Sam Cooper (14).
