19/3/11 - Meds vs Wythenshawe Panthers AWAY

A late start today at Wythenshawe again with some confusion over if the game was a cup or league fixture. Having since checked, it was a league game-cup game next week!

Based on our recent pep talk to the team, me and Mike were hoping for a reaction and we definitely got it!

And a big welcome back to Dylan - his first game for a long time!

Meds started the game off well with the passing and commitment evident from the start. However on their small pitch we got caught out by a number of kicks over the top that we didn't defend too well and were 2-0 down towards the end of the first period. It was definitely undeserved from the passage of play as we had created some chances ourselves. But as in recent games we did not give up and Ellis managed to score from a tight angle to get us back into it. And with virtually the last kick of the period James ended up in the penalty area - from left back - to slot one in making it 2-2.

We swapped a number of players over for the 2nd period and again we held them well and created a couple of chances. With a little more composure and keeping our heads up, we will perhaps score a couple more. Unfortunately Wythenshawe got another in the period to take the lead a 3-2.

The final period had alot of good play again and as ever it was exciting. Wythenshawe scored another breakaway goal as our defenders tried to get forward. But the heads never went down and the players response was very positive. Meds won a free kick which Ellis powered in to the top corner. The game was back on! But again we just got caught on the break and Wythenshawe got a final goal to clinch it making it 5-3 in the end.

But.....alot of positives. The attitude and effort from the players was first class. We held them well and this was such an improvement against the same team last week.

Again -always ways we can get better - and some of the passing and tackling will be worked on.

Special mention to all the keepers who volunteered to go in goal - Ham, James and Louis - who all made some super saves.

Man of the match for his 110% effort in the game was Max. Well done !

"I could have signed for Newcastle when I was 17, but I decided I would be better off at Carlisle. I'd had a drink that night."
