Leeds vs Stoke, 3rd October 2015

Leeds 22 – 0 Stoke

We played 10v9 for quarters instead of halves and Emma Barrow was the only ref.

We offered to give them some players but they wanted to stay separate.

Leeds played well settling the ball in attack and turning it over in midfield.  Stoke had a few runs up to their attacking end but only had a couple of saved shots on goal-they struggled to stop some of the stronger Leeds players like Alex and Julia.  Playing quarters gave Stoke a bit of a rest and helped me rotate the 7 Leeds subs.  It was a great game for our new and less experienced players to get stuck in and there were some great goals from those players. Hopefully Stoke can get their team together for the rest of their games.

Leeds MVP: Laura Winterbottom and Ellouise Caswell

Stoke MVP: Jayne Craig

Ref: Emma Barrow

Leeds vs Heaton Mersey 26th September

Heaton Mersey 17-4 Leeds

Mersey started the scoring prompting Leeds to respond with 3 goals of their own.  Mersey then pulled it back with another few goals in quick succession to make it level.  Charlie Raymer and Jane Haynes made themselves known after that causing another flurry of goals up to half time-score was 11-3 at half time.

The second half stared mover positively for Leeds with another goal by Milly Pratt and new comer Emily Jones caused a few good turn overs in the midfield for Leeds.

Despite some hard work by the Leeds defence Heaton Mersey powered through with some impressive play by Fiona graham and Charlie Raymer. It was a very clean game and a great start to the season for both teams 🙂

Leeds Ladies at Easter 8s

Easter Sunday 20 April 2014 saw Leeds Penguins, the ladies side of Leeds Lacrosse, travel to Stockport for the annual Easter 8s competition. It is always a fun and relaxed event and an end of season festival of lacrosse in the sunshine. Well the sunshine may have deserted us but we had a lot of fun playing lacrosse.

Many of the teams embraced the fancy dress options and the Liverpool tea were a sight to be seen in their onesies. There was also a random assortment of playing cards, Wally’s and Minion’s although I’m sad to say that Leeds were not one of the teams who embraced the optional fancy dress.

We played 6 games in all and had close matches against Wilmslow, Mellor and Heaton Mersey. There was victory in the final game against Liverpool. Eventual winners were Oxton but they were run close by a spirited Timperley performance.
