Ladies 2nds Battle hard against Chipping Campden

Stroud Ladies' 2nd XI, newly-promoted to Severn Division 2, were unlucky to end 1-4 down against Chipping Campden in Evesham. Play was open and possession well-balanced between the two teams.
Chipping Campden marked tightly but Stroud took advantage of their tendency to play down the middle, finding plenty of opportunities to take the ball out wide. With some great passing into space to shake off the opposition, and impressive awareness of one another, Stroud were able to move the ball effectively the length of the pitch.
Chipping Campden scored first from open play, soon followed by an equaliser from Candice Johnson determined to find the goal. Chipping Campden had two short corners which Stroud defended well, but the home side scored again from open play to make it 2-1 at half time. Coming out again, it looked like anyone’s game and both teams fought hard and played some great hockey. In the last 10 minutes Chipping Campden scored a beauty, a nifty deflection from a strong hit outside the D.  Now riding high, this was immediately followed with another, making it 4-1. Far from being down-heartened, every Stroud player should be very proud of their performance. Man of the Match was Sian Freer for her outstanding commitment in defence.
