A Tough Tournament For Lynn
Match 1: King’s Lynn v Cambridge
A solid first game from Lynn, with all players getting their name on the score sheet.
Some great team play.
Final score 11 – 2 to Lynn
Match 2: King’s Lynn v Grimsby
The second game proved much more difficult for Lynn as they faced an organised experienced Premier League team.
From the start Grimsby had a lot of possession but Lynn held them with a tight defensive system and Kasia pulling off some great saves. However as the team lost concentration Grimsby pulled ahead before half time.
The second half saw Josh T score and Lynn then created multiple chances but failed to finish them.
Along with some controversial refereeing decisions and Lynn’s frustration growing, Grimsby pulled further ahead. Lynn were forced to pressure and finally Grimsby won.
Final score 9 – 1 to Grimsby.
Match 3: King’s Lynn v Letchworth A
Again Lynn faced another talented Premier League team and this too was a tough game.
Despite this Lynn took an early lead. This gave Lynn confidence and they showed great passing and skating ability along with a solid defence. However a few small mistakes cost the team a few goals.
Towards the end of the game Lynn pressured full rink in an attempt to reduce the deficit. Lynn scored a few goals and created multiple chances from this, but it also left them exposed at the back and Letchworth capitalised with clinical finishing.
Final score 9 – 4 to Letchworth A
Match 4: King’s Lynn v Letchworth B
The last game of the day saw Lynn face Letchworth B.
From the start Lynn controlled the game showing great teamwork and individual skill from all players.
Final score 9 – 4 to Lynn.
