No goals for Stroud L2 a rarity

For the first time this season the Stroud side did not score a goal:  a rare occurrence.  Despite having much of the possession in mid-field and some strong defensive work by Tati Howell in goal, the forwards were unable to find the form to secure that all important goal.  The lack of goals from Stroud can in part be attributed to the Newent defence – the team’s 2 best players played in the defence. For Stroud, Carrie Sanders did some wonderful attacking runs and was awarded ‘Player of the match’ for her determination and drive.  Captain Katy Stotesbury was commanding in the back diamond position and was instrumental in some fine attacking manoeuvres.  Stroud had 3 short corners and, unlike previous weeks, was unable to score from any of them.  The Newent keeper was called upon several times to stop a shot from the Stroud attack but the Stroud team, despite its sustained pressure was just unable to find the net.
