Cheltenham came into Severn 2 from the league above and, as expected, this proved to be a tough game for the Stroud side. During the first half Cheltenham had a run of short corners which were skilfully dealt with by the Stroud defence. Cheltenham scored twice during the first half and Stroud's Carrie Sanders was able to pull a goal back and going into halftime the score was 2:1.

Early in the second half, Stroud had 20 minutes of sustained, skilled and impressive attack when the Cheltenham defenders were under pressure and their GK was called into action a number of times. The ball stubbornly refused to go into the net. Stroud's defenders continued to block much of the Cheltenham attack, including an over the bar save by GK Aleasha Holder, but the relentless pressure, and ultimately superior fitness of the Cheltenham team, gave them the victory.
