Fine Win for L1

Stroud Ladies' 1st XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, showed all their hard work is paying off, comprehensively beating a strong Bourton side on Saturday.  It was a true team performance, everybody working hard for each other and an insistence on moving the ball quickly.  The visitors were no slouches, however, looking very dangerous at times and passing the ball nicely, as were Stroud.  With Stroud moving into space and creating momentum down the flanks, it was they that took the lead, Claire Crosthwaite converting her first of 3.  Shortly afterwards, she scored her second and Lucy Moir made the score 3-0 at the half time break.
Stroud’s defence was worked hard, man-of-the-match Steph Woodward undaunted in the face of fierce attacks.  Despite their best efforts, Bourton pulled a goal back, before Moir fired the home side further ahead again.  The visitors struck back once more but Crosthwaite’s short corner strike put the game safe at 5-2.
There was some excellent hockey on display from both sides, but Stroud deserved the win and are now creating space and moving the ball with real panache.
