Have to wonder if Forge will mimic Cavalry and go with a heavy squad rotation for this one.

I thought about this when I saw the U21 minutes for each team but I doubt they would rotate for the Y9 match.

They are in a tough spot. They really dropped the ball in the first game.

Agreed, but I would expand that to the first two games.  Should've been able to close out against Pacific.

The alternative would be to go full strength against a team that hasn't yet separated themselves from the weaker teams to get the next round locked up so they can coast through the final games and do a lot of squad rotation at that point.

About as good a half as you could expect.  

Good on Y9 for taking the game to Forge instead of sitting back and trying to absorb, especially after the goal.  In attack they are pressing instead of just trying to keep it in possession.  Crosses have been much better today not the same slow lofty crosses we've seen before today.  

Ingham has been very solid so far.  Good hands, making the right decision when to come for the ball and not missing when he does.  

Forge is going to adjust coming out of the half, Y9 needs to keep up what they have been doing.  Don't take your foot off the gas.
