Mixed fortunes for Steelers kids

Have your say

morgan Buccanon marked his first Sheffield U14s appearance of the season in style with two goals as the Steelers beat their Rochdale counterparts 14-2.

Fit-again Buccanon’s brace saw Steelers race into a 4-0 lead, and were 5-1 up after the first quarter.

Going into half-time leading 9-1, the scoring slowed in the third Q as the Rochdale goal keeper pulled off a series of great stops to keep the score down to 11-1 at the end of the third quarter.

With the Steelers defence well marshalled by Luke Green, Steelers travelled back to Sheffield deserved 14-2 victors.

Steelers’ Under-16 side had no such luck, however, suffering a heavy 16-3 defeat at the hands of Poynton.

By the end of the first quarter Sheffield were only trailing by one at 3-2, but the second quarter was disastrous as they failed to handle the ball successfully.

At half time, they were 10-2 down and they never really recovered from there.

Poynton were unrelenting on the attack in the third quarter, scoring three times but only two-goal Dan Aspin registered a consolation for the well-beaten Steelers.
