Ladies 1st Xi gain 3 More Points

After a few tough matches, Stroud Ladies' 1st XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, got stuck into this away game. Heavy rain before the match meant that the pitch had to be cleared of a deluge of water but, thankfully, the teams were able to get on with the game.
For the first ten minutes, Avonmouth were very strong attacking, and at times it looked like they may get the first goal. Several shots either went wide, were saved by goalkeeper, Aleasha Holder, or blocked by some fantastic defence work.
The game was then settled down, both teams making good breaks for goal.  Lucy Moir was able to get the first of her three goals, giving the team a boost in a very hard game.  Whilst Moir scored twice more, Stroud's defence put in a solid performance, and Avonmouth only managed to score a consolation goal in the dying minutes. Great work by attack and midfield led Stroud to multiple shots at goal.
The Ladies fought hard for this win, leaving them comfortably mid-table. It was good to have Captain Karen Wilsher on the sideline, lending support to the team which is looking better each week.
