Sun shines for Stroud Ladies 2XI

As the frost melted on the astro pitch, Ecotricity-sponsored Stroud took on Lansdown with the backdrop of Stratford Park in all its autumnal glory. Stroud didn’t waste any time taking control of the first half. Within minutes their strong, confident passing and solid teamwork were rewarded as Rosie Jones made it 1-0 with a great strike from open play. Lansdown had no intention of making it easy, however, and despite Stroud dominating, Lansdown were able to equalise from a well-executed short corner. Stroud kept their cool and were soon back on top, Jade Rigglesford producing an impressive finish to a great run to make it 2-1. Moments before the half time whistle, Lansdown broke through Stroud’s hard working defence to make it 2-2. In the second half Lansdown fought back hard but despite two short corners and numerous attacks on goal, they were held off by a very determined Stroud defence with bold, effective goal keeping by Helen Summers. When Stroud did break away, the forward line flew and player of the match Carrie Sanders executed a great finish to score the winning goal.
