U16s Meteors step it up again
By Chris Hughes
Coming out on top of a closer 1st half than the score line suggests ensured that for the second week running the Meteors played exceptionally well and in the process getting their just rewards.
A solid first half performance in which both sides were evenly matched was key to this game.
If it were not for Joe Wilson and Brady Whites long range goals in the 1st half the game could have panned out differently. Add to this some fine saves from new goalkepper Ceeroos and it was clear that once the boys went in at half time 3-0 up Peninsula were chasing the game.
This left the game more open than the first half and an when an unfortunate knock to Peninsula's goalkeeper head forced him off there was no way back for the home team with Hoylake taking advantage to score 8 second half goals.
