Another Fine Victory for L1 Keeps them Clear at the Top

Stroud Ladies’ 1st XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, produced a fine 5-0 win over East Glos to stay top of the division by 6 points.  Despite fielding a strong side, at first it looked like this could be a difficult game as East Glos were well-drilled and motivated opponents.  Stroud eventually showed why they are justifiably the top of the division, with good ball skills and movement from the defence all the way up to the opposition D.  An inch-perfect pass from Lucy Moir put Kyishia Cooke free on the right and her pass back to Moir at the top of the D was finished comprehensively.  Karen Whitehead picked up a loose ball and produced a fine looping strike to put Stroud further ahead.  Emily Allan finished off a fine individual run with a goal.  Further goals from Kyishia Cooke and Claire Crosthwaite completed what, on paper at least, was a bit of a rout. This was a well-deserved win for the ladies, particularly against a strong side in EG, and a brilliant way to start the second half of the League season.
