Un­der 11s main­tain fine run of form

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -


THE U11s were look­ing to con­tinue their good form when they faced a dou­ble header against Cud­ding­ton and Sandi­way.

The first game against Cross­fields saw a good match up against two good teams. Mac­cles­field’s in-form de­fence lim­ited Cross­fields for­wards to rare half chances, but it was the qual­ity of Mac­cles­field’s mid­field and for­wards that shone through with two well taken goals by tal­ented Sofia White­hurst.

Car­rie Cop­son was out­stand­ing up front in the first game and was un­lucky not to get on the score­sheet.

The sec­ond game against Sandi­way was ex­cit­ing for all those in­volved, MTLFC fell be­hind early on as a re­sult of a de­flec­tion past their own keeper.

They were soon on level terms in sim­i­lar fash­ion when an­other shot from Sofia White­hurst was de­flected back into Sandi­way net. It looked like Mac­cles­field would go down as com­fort­able vic­tors, but a de­fen­sive lapse al­lowed Sandi­way to grab a goal and take the lead.

Mac­cles­field kept press­ing and were even­tu­ally re­warded when ex­cel­lent link up play from Faye Hanaghan re­leased Jessie Davies to score a ter­rific equaliser.

Mac­cles­field kept press­ing for a third but were beaten by the clock.

MTLFC U11s Sylks were also in ac­tion and fought like ter­ri­ers against a re­silient Run­corn Lin­nets Green side in their first game at Moss Farm.

Sylks en­deav­oured to break­down the Run­corn back five but a de­fen­sive er­ror in the first half de­cided the game.

Strong pres­sure from Mac­cles­field in both halves and lots of good foot­ball gave them well de­served win.

MTLFC have a healthy U11s sec­tion at the present and with the newly formed MTLFC Trea­cles in ac­tion for the first time ran out con­vinc­ing win­ners against Run­corn Lin­nets Blue.

The U18s got back on an even keel with a draw against Up­ton 1-1.
