Stroud Ladies 2nd XI on the way up

Stroud ladies 2nd XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, chalked up a significant 2-2 draw against Chipping Campden on Saturday. Playing a team currently sitting second in the division, Stroud showed that they have moved up a gear following good results in recent weeks. The teams were well matched and battled hard from the off. Campden scored first, making the most of a short corner. Stroud came back hard and equalised when Jade Rigglesford executed a glorious run all the way from the centre line, defeating 3 defenders before deftly and confidently flicking the ball to the back of the net. Shortly before half time Campden scored a second goal from open play.

The excessively strong winds didn’t hold either team back but did exhaust them, both sides looking weary as they fought their way through the second half. Both had opportunities and tension mounted. The Stroud back line and keeper worked hard, showed great team work, and saw off many strong attacks, but it was Stroud who finally changed the score line, Kathy Williams’ persistent hard work paying off when she sneaked one into the net to equalise.
