Blackpool Juniors played their local counterparts from Lytham St Annes before all the senior games. Lytham Juniors started strongly and quickly established a two goal lead against a less experienced Blackpool side. Lytham continued to dominate throughout the first half but every credit to Blackpool for giving their all and never giving in. In the 2nd half Blackpool improved significantly and played some nice hockey but the final pass was missing or the solid Lytham defence cleared any danger. Lytham gradually increased their scoreless from a furthere five goals. Although the final score did not reflect the effort the Blackpool side gave, it’s a little reminder of what can be achieved with hard work and effort. Brent Whiteside and Alicia Johnson were the outstanding players for Blackpool.
