Weekend Match Reports 10th February 2019

BartonHC M1s 3 - 5 Cannock HC M1s

If ever there was a game of two halves, this was it. Cannock began the game tentatively, surrendering control to Barton who took full advantage punishing the Chase Park side who found themselves 3 goals down within 15 minutes. Cannock dug in and were able to pull a goal back through a well worked short corner driven in by Duncan Gladwin.
  Some frank words at half time by the Cannock captain Stuart Gooderham resulted in a transformation in performance. Cannock upped the pace and style of their game and tore into the Barton midfield and defence. Goals from Aaron Wilkes, Dan Hibbert and a brace from Ed Martin turned this match upside down, as Barton fought desperately to stop the rout. Cannock took a very valuable three points home with them to start preparing for their clash with top of the table Harborne next week.

 

Cannock M4s 5 - 4 Wednesbury M2s

Cannock 4s played Wednesbury 2s and went 5 - 0 up within the first 15 minutes, before being drawn into a war of attrition. Following 2 red cards early in the second half, Cannock were forced to mount a rearguard action and play the last 25 minutes with 9 men, eventually running out 5-4 winners. 

Goal Scorers - Jonny Machin, Evan Alcock, Bruce Alcock, Dave Bradbury & Phil Micklewright 

POM - Phil Micklewright 

 

Cannock M5s 0 - 9 Sutton Coldfield 6s

After a short journey to Sutton Coldfield, Cannock soon realised they were up against a very strong team. Despite the Cannocks team best efforts, they could just not keep Sutton out of the scoring zone. Unfortunately Cannock had two players injured during the game, playing the majority of the second half without a goal keeper. 
A very tough game for all involved, but a learning experience, we go again next week! 

 

Cannock L1s 5 - 1 Lichfield 

Cannock ladies 1s kicked off their second half of the season with a trip to local rivals Lichfield. Cannock started strong and immediately applied the pressure to the home side in scoring a nice team goal with Nic George hitting it first time into the back of the net. The second came not long after from Emma Pardo. The home side however started to get momentum and went into half with with a goal under their belt. 
Half time came at a good time for Cannock who were able to gain their composure back and score a third quickly after the break with a well struck shot from Jodie Beddow. Lichfield never really looked like getting back into the game with Cannock breaking through their press and stretching them. A fourth goal came from skipper Sarah Martin before Lucy Spencer put the game to bed with a sweet first strike from a short corner. 

POM - Nic George 

 

Cannock L2s 0 - 3 Edgbaston - Saturday 9th February 
Cannock L2s 0 - 2 Matlock Sunday 10th February 

 

Cannock L3s 0 - 3 Lichfield 

Cannock Ladies 3s travelled away to Lichfield. Lichfield had a strong game exploiting the centre of the pitch and unlucky touches from Cannock defending play, allowed two easy goals in the first half. 
The second half Cannock had mroe chances and were unlucky not to convert any, Lichfield benefitted from a decent stricke at the top of the D with the view of the Cannock GK blocked. Unfortunately the 3-0 score line does not do justice to the work rate and effort of the team. With some young development players coming through from the 4th team, there is lots of opportunity to improve and finish the season in a strong posisition, near the top of the table. 
POM - Charlie Robinson, who worked her socks off all game, both in attack and defence. 

Cannock L4s 1 - 3 Lichfield

Cannock L5s 2 - 0 Stafford L4s 

Cannock 5s welcomed Stafford 4s to Chase Park, Cannock started off strong and took control of the game. The training that the team had done on Monday night, attacking game play, did not go to waste, as the team applied this to the game. New rising star Emma Greatrex shot from the top of the D was saved by the keeper, but Emma Hunneyball (aka burt) was on the hunt for her second goal of the season and the rebound, seeing the ball hit the back of the net!! 
Cannock continued to bring the game to Stafford and won a short corner. A delivery from a young Abbt Rhodes to Olivia Edwards who found the back of the net. 2-0 to Cannock. Stafford did start to fight back, but they were no match for the Cannock defence.
