Weekend Match Reports 2nd February 2019

Cannock L1s 2 - 0 Leicester 

   Cannock ladies 1s hosted bottom of the table Leicester but knew that Leicester would be by no means a walk over. Cannock didn’t have the best of games but worked hard together and had the majority of the chances and the play.
   Despite the umpires controversially disallowing 2 perfectly legitimate goals Cannock went on to win the game 2-0 with goals from man of the match Nic George and Jodie Beddow

 

Cannock L2s 8 - 1 Rugby 

Cannock ladies 2’s played away this week at rugby ladies 1’s who were flying high up the table and are currently placed 2nd.
   Rugby started with drive and desire entering cannocks D and having a shot on target all in the first minute of the game. Cannock regrouped and started to play the ball around in the rugby half which resulted in a break away goal from Lou Humphrey. Cannock led deep into the second half but rugby scored 2 in quick succession with the second being an incredible lucky rebound from a great save by keeper penny. Penny took a stick to the neck at the end of the second half requiring the half to be stopped a few mins early, penny decided to carry on into the second half regardless.
   Unfortunately Cannocks mistakes in the second half were met by rugby pushing hard which resulted in 3 quick goals in succession. Cannock struggles to dominate the game as they did in the first half and the final score was 8-1.

MOM goal keeper Penny who had an incredible game on her birthday!!

Cannock 2’s will continue to battle hard every week and churn out the results.

 

Cannock L3s 2 - 2 Leek L2s

Cannock ladies 3s had a tough fixture at home to leek ladies 2nd team. With quite a few players coming up from the 4th team and a plethora of attacking players with limited defenders the formation of the team meant that people were playing out of their normal positions.    Cannock rose valiantly to the challenge and it was clear that teamwork would win through in an excellent performance from everyone involved. Cannock put the pressure on early doors with a great goal from Emma greaterex. The cannock defence then kept leek at bay for the remainder of the first half.
   Going into the second half leek came at cannock strong with two or three key playmakers up front to get a goal back. Cannock would not be deterred and fought on scoring another goal with a whole team effort converted by Emma again. Leek continued to put pressure on and it was only towards the end of the game they scored another. Cannock goalkeeper Charlotte eyre played brilliantly keeping the leek strikers at bay. The game finished on a cannock short corner which unfortunately couldn’t be converted leading to final score 2-2.
   A well earned point for cannock and the opposition commented on what a fantastic game it was and how much they enjoyed it. Overall showing a promising performance from 4th team players coming through the ranks.
MOM Jill Simpson at centre back who had never played in that position ever before.

 

Cannock M4s 1 - 1 Leek 

Cannock Mens 4s faced a Leek side tgat they had previously trounced 4-0 in the away fixture. However this game was always going to be tough with Leek having won their 4 games, scoring 18 goals in the process. And so it proved to be.
   Cannock had the better of the earlier exchanges but Leek took the lead on 20 minutes when a Cannock defender mis- controlled an aerial ball, deflecting it to a Leek forward who was able to fire home from the top of the D past the advancing keeper.
   Cannock battled hard only to find the Leek keeper on top form. Eventually, Cannock equalized just before the break through a penalty corner conversion from Jonny Machin.
   In the second half, Cannock had the better of a tight game, creating many chances but were unable to appy the killer blow. Final score 1-1.

MOM Cameron Horn for another assured performance in both defence and attack

 

Cannock M5s 0 - 12 North Staffs 4s
  Cannock 5ths welcomed North Staffs 4s sitting in 2nd place to Chase Park, despite Cannock best efforts they could not stop North Staffs scoring 12 times, With other results of the day going North Staffords way they have moved into 1st with four games left, so although a hard watch for the captain out on the sidelines (hoping to be back for a first time in month next Saturday) he wants Cannock 5s youngsters in heinseight to know they should be proud of not giving up and at times playing some nice hockey against a team in with a good shout of winning the league.
