Stroud 2XI victorious at last

Stroud Ladies 2nd XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, chalked up only their second League win of the season against Cirencester. Looking more confident than they have all season, they started strongly, despite being a player down for the first half. Stroud created several opportunities which resulted in short corners and while they didn’t quite find the net, the third corner resulted in a penalty flick. Captain ‘Victorious’ Sharpe stepped up to the mark and executed an accurate flick; the Cirencester keeper did well to make contact with the ball but it found its way across the line putting Stroud ahead. In the second half the wind got up, the hail came down but the score line remained stubbornly static. Stroud worked really well across the field playing good, fluid hockey. Aleasha Holder made some courageous saves and was well supported by a determined and effective defence which successfully defended 3 short corners. This was a great result for Stroud.  Player of the match was Jordan Turnbull.
