L2 Winning Streak Continues Unabated

The late afternoon game began with low light streaming across the pitch making visibility a huge challenge for Ecotricity-sponsored Stroud Ladies’ 2nd XI.  The strength of Lansdown’s attacking game made it hard for Stroud to play their usual flowing hockey – a tough battle ensued.  Both teams had chances, but Stroud’s defence stood firm.  Stroud keeper, Jordan Turnbull, made several great saves and was supported brilliantly by a focused, strong and effective defensive unit.
Whilst opportunities to attack the opposition goal were fewer than recent matches, Stroud took full advantage when they did break beyond the halfway line.  Claire Crosthwaite opened the scoring with an unstoppable attack on goal mid- way through the first half.  Jade Rigglesford made it 2-0 with a lovely run, latching onto an inch-perfect pass from Victoria Sharpe.  Stroud continued to fight hard against determined opposition.  As the light faded, Stroud made it 3-0 with a textbook attack set up by Rigglesford and hammered home by Nic Kelly-Davies.  This was a very satisfying end to a challenging match.  Player of the match Steph Woodward.
