Under 11s maintain fine run of form
MACCLESFIELD TOWN LADIES FC
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.
