Whitchurch travelled the long journey to Macclesfield in great numbers.
They were met with a very strong home outfit, possibly the best they have met to date. The Macclesfield coach confirmed that they have up to 50 lads in their u13's squad to choose from!
The match was split into 3, 20 minute sections.
The first was one way traffic in the main which we lost 4-1 with Roux junking in for a consolation try.
The second was closer. The boys were beginning to realise what they were up against and their game improved. This period was lost 2-0.
In the final third Macclesfield finally saw how good a team we can be when we release the ball and use the width of the pitch. The score was 3-3 in the end but we led until the very last play with tries from BenH and two from big Tom H.
A long way to travel for an extremely hard match but the boys fought hard and should be proud of how they finished the game.
