Fantastic win for Stroud 1XI Ladies

Stroud Ladies' 1st XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, won convincingly against local rivals Cirencester, the 5-0 score line reflecting their superiority. A great start saw the home side passing the ball around and making full use of the space across the pitch. Some forceful attacking work by the midfield and forwards, allowed Claire Crosthwaite several opportunities from which she was unlucky not to score. A fine pass from Crosthwaite to the centre of the D gave Angharad Roberts the perfect opportunity to slot into the back of the goal. A 1-0 advantage gave Stroud the incentive they needed to take control of the game. A penalty flick scored by Lucy Moir was closely followed by two goals from Emily Allan, before a fifth and final goal from Moir again. Many more goal opportunities were created, but Cirencester's goalkeeper had a great game, saving several fantastic shots. Stroud's defence had a great game and worked hard to keep Cirencester from even looking like scoring. Despite a yellow card in the last 5 minutes, Stroud had a great game and showed once again why they remain top of the table.
