Friendly draw against Lydney for Ladies 1XI

Ladies 1XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, went away to Lydney for a half term friendly. After their first league loss two weeks ago, the team wanted to play good hockey and look at tactics that could be utilised over the next few weeks. A good start by both teams, it was difficult to tell who would come out on top. Some great passing round the back and up the wings from Stroud led to some lovely possession play, and despite several shots on goal, Lydneys goalkeeper was able to save them and keep the score clear. Lydney also on the attack made some good attempts at goal, however a solid Stroud defence kept them at bay for a while. A flick against Stroud was given for a foot stopping a goal, and Stroud's captain Jade O'Connell, who had to step up as goalkeeper, saved it brilliantly. Lydney however came back and scored a goal, followed by an attack from Stroud with an equaliser from Lucy Moir. Lydney came back with their second goal of the game, an unfortunate rebound saw Rebecca Stevens lose her stick and therefore was unable to prevent the goal from crossing the line. Claire Crosthwaite however scored for Stroud, equalising once more. Stroud looked strong for the remainder of the game, and concentrated on playing the game that they have played for most of the season. Good passing, using the width and not giving the ball away too often. Overall an enjoyable game for the Ladies 1XI, and all are looking forward to next weeks league game, especially hoping that the sunshine might stay!
