Fal­lon’s hat-trick for Ladies

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

IN atro­cious con­di­tions MTLFC’s op­po­nents at Moss Farm at the week­end were Ch­ester & District for a mid-ta­ble tus­sle.

From the out­set, Mac­cles­field showed a bit more de­ter­mi­na­tion than of late, and were quickly off the back foot, pep­per­ing the Ch­ester goal with nu­mer­ous ef­forts.

It wasn’t long be­fore the Ch­ester de­fence suc­cumbed to the pres­sure. Af­ter con­ced­ing a cor­ner, the ball was flicked in and with a cheeky back heel, new sign­ing Lizzie Tay­lor put the ball in the back of the net.

The sec­ond soon fol­lowed from back to form Leah Han­na­gan with a curl­ing shot past the Ch­ester keeper to make it 2-0.

The sec­ond half con­tin­ued in much the same vein with MTLFC con­tin­u­ally press­ing the Ch­ester goal.

Step up Lily Fal­lon, with one of her pow­er­ful runs to score Mac­cles­field’s third.

She scored an­other two goals to make her hat-trick, one shot re­bound­ing off the Ch­ester goal­keeper and she con­verted the fol­low up.

To Ch­ester’s credit they fought back to score a con­so­la­tion goal, but down to the Mac­cles­field de­fence these chances were kept to a min­i­mum.

This was a much bet­ter per­for­mance and an ex­cep­tional team ef­fort, big men­tions to Sara Dale, Alf Grif­fiths and Anna Melling all of whom per­formed with credit in such tor­ren­tial con­di­tions.

A re­turn to form for Leah Han­na­gan saw her with win Girl of the match.

The U18’s were also in ac­tion with a game against Manor Youth which ended 1-1.

The re­sult leaves them with a good chance of gain­ing third spot in the league, only three points be­hind.
