Ladies 1st XI - Fine Win

STROUD LADIES 1st XI - 4

WOOTTON BASSETT 2nd XI - 2

"Best Performance Ever" - The Coach

The Stroud team was delighted when its coach confirmed what the players themselves thought - they had played some excellent hockey. The team passed the ball quickly and accurately and Wootton Bassett were unable to interrupt the continuous Stroud linking movements. The pressure applied by the Stroud forward line rewarded all 4 players with goals - Lucy Frost, Karen Whitehead, Lucy Moir and Claire Crosthwaite. The midfield line remained determined to retain possession of the ball, ensuring Stroud maintained their edge. Having had 2 friendly games cancelled during September, the team began to tire towards the end of the second half, allowing Wootton Bassett to claw back 2 quick goals. With a victory within their grasp, however, the Stroud players raised the standard of their game once more and controlled the remaining 10 minutes of the match. This gave them all 3 points and was a great start to the league season.
