Ladies 2nd X1, best performance this season

The Stroud team played flowing, controlled and skillful hockey against the Gloucester side and needed to keep its wits about it in this tough game. GK, Aleasha Holder was exceptional in her determination to stop Gloucester from scoring and she was ably assisted by the Stroud defence with Emma Hall swiftly picking up what was required from her in a new, left back, position. The attack from the Gloucester side was relentless and they scored early in the first half. Stroud defended numerous short corners, which were taken at speed, and the defence did well to thwart all attempts to score. Stroud had a short corner awarded just before half time and were unlucky not to convert it to a goal. The second half saw the Stroud forwards, supported by mid-field, really put pressure on the Gloucester team with Hannah Scott, Evie Robb and Carrie Sanders working particularly well on the RH side of the pitch. It was a hard and fast ball from the right which Sian Freer deftly picked up and, with a one touch, flicked it towards goal. The ball had maintained its pace but against the odds the keeper saved it. The Stroud team was proud of a fine performance and a draw would have been the icing on the cake.
