Stroud ladies 2XI find it rough-on-Wye

Stroud made a great start to their match against Ross on Wye on Saturday. They looked the stronger team and within 5 minutes had scored; Carrie Sanders taking the ball into the D and making it look easy with a clean strike.  Unfortunately this seemed to wake Ross up and they equalised within minutes, then went on to dominate the 1st half. Ross played great hockey relying on persistent marking, strong intercepts and short, fast passes, racking up a further 3 goals, their confidence growing with each one. Half time gave Stroud a chance to regroup and in the second half they put up a good fight. Ross continued to play well and were rewarded with a further 4 goals but Stroud fought hard across the pitch. The only way Stroud could break through was to connect as a team and work hard from the backline, through midfield to the front. Work hard they did, and they were rewarded with a well-deserved second goal by Nic Kelly-Davies late in the game, which finished a punishing 8-2.
