Tough draw for Ladies 1st team

Stroud 1st    2           Dursley   2

An away/home game meant that Dursley played host to Stroud but on Strouds home turf. This gives the advantage of an extra league game played on a new pitch that the Ladies have been training on and beginning to use to their advantage.

A quick start meant that both teams had to dig deep however the score at half time was still 0-0

Both teams had attempts at goal but Dursley found the backboard first, despite the defensive efforts of Aleasha Holder, Sarah Thomas, Becky Stevens and Angharad Roberts. Stroud fought back with two goals coming from Julie Whiting, some hard work from the midfielders Sarah Tudor, Hattie White, Elaine Noone and Karen Willsher allowing the ball to travel up the pitch.

Debbie Ratcliffes positioning at the goal was brilliant however several shots by Claire Crosthwaite and a lovely cross by Kate Davies were saved by the Dursley goalkeeper.

A last goal from Dursley gave them an equaliser near the end of the second half.
