THE Macclesfield Pop Lacrosse tour­na­ment at Macclesfield Leisure Cen­tre saw seven teams from four pri­mary schools, Bollinbrook, Gawsworth, Hollinhey and Puss Bank take part.

There was some ex­cel­lent lacrosse played through­out the event with most games be­ing re­ally close.

Af­ter the ini­tial group stages two teams were tied on points for top spot and three teams tied on points for third, fourth and fifth, so the semi-fi­nal qual­i­fiers went down to goal dif­fer­ence.

In the first semi-fi­nal Puss Bank beat Bollinbrook 6–4.

The sec­ond semi-fi­nal was in­cred­i­bly close with Gawsworth only just beat­ing Hollinhey 7-6, but only af­ter dou­ble-over­time.

Puss Bank started the fi­nal quickly and raced into a three-goal lead.

Gawsworth ral­lied and started to close the gap but they ran out of time with the game fin­ish­ing 5-3 to Puss Bank.

Both fi­nal­ists will go on to the Cheshire fi­nals on March 11.
