Under 18s see off reigning champs
MACCLESFIELD Town Ladies FC U18s welcomed last season’s champions Manor to Back Lane and as soon as the whistle blew they knew there were in for tough game.
Manor started well and were first to every ball, but this woke up MTLFC and soon started there tick tacky football style.
MTLFC soon took the lead with with foul on Taylor with resulting set piece taken by Booth, with swinging free kick flicked on by Williams to Friesner who buried the ball in the back of the net.
The second was great volley by whitehead in top corner after combined efforts by Fletcher, Friesner and Woodhead.
Manor were not to be out done and showed great fighting spirit to put pressure on the Macclesfield defence to score two quick goals to draw level.
The second half started with Manor piling on the pressure, the defence of Woodward, Fogarty, Bennett, Mottershead protecting Coombes in net, but with Manor’s skill they took the lead.
MTLFC don’t give up and it was Manor’s turn to defend, with Taylor winning everything in the middle along with Williams Booth and Fletcher setting up the attacks, a cross from Fletcher released Friesner to volley the ball past the flailing Manor goalkeeper to draw the scores level.
MTLFC weren’t settling for a draw, Friesner turned provider and sent Booth through on goal, running from half way only had the keeper to beat who pulled out dramatic save, only for Booth to pounce on the rebound to bury the ball in the back of the net to secure a great victory for this young talented team and their dedicated coach.
