STROUD LADIES LEAVE IT UNTIL THE LAST 5 MINUTES TO WIN THE MATCH!

After 2 weeks of postponed league games this friendly was a welcome opportunity to hone hockey skills in readiness for next week's league games.  Fighting at times against torrential rain and in strong winds both teams worked hard to gain the upper hand.  In a well-balanced match the ball moved swiftly from end to end with Stroud GK, Aleasha Holder making some important, acrobatic saves to ensure that Stroud maintained a clean sheet.  Sarah Tudor's lightening runs stopped the Cirencester attack on many occasions and the ball was moved swiftly back up the pitch.  Stroud's winning goal came in the final 5 minutes of the match and it was the result of a fabulous attacking move from Angharad Roberts:  she stopped a hit from the Cirencester defender at point blank range, tipped the ball into the D and neatly put the ball past the Cirencester keeper.
