Jubilant Stroud Ladies 1st Team Take 3 Points

Stroud Ladies 1st XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, managed a 1-0 win against local team, Dursley. In an evenly-matched game, both teams pushed for the first goal from the off.  Stroud were unfortunate not to turn their attacks into goals, whilst their defence was able to keep Dursley at bay with some fantastic work by Becky Stevens, Katherine Stevens, Jade O'Connell and Sarah Tudor.
At half time, Stroud were down to the bare eleven as Debbie Ratcliffe was unfortunate to take a stick to the hand, causing a fractured thumb.  All members of the team kept going, however, for that all important goal.
Multiple attacks were instigated by midfield and forwards - it started to feel like Stroud might just have the edge over Dursley.  With ten minutes to go, a lovely cross into the D by Kyishia Cook was caught on the reverse by Angharad Roberts and slotted neatly into the far right corner of the goal.  After this, Stroud needed some composure and not give away possession.  Some well-defended short corners were followed by some great drives up the pitch and a jubilant Stroud gained three points to stay mid-table.
