The thrill of scoring first was sufficient to carry the Stroud ladies 2nd team to a second goal within a matter of minutes!  The team had struggled to find the net earlier in the season but some fine runs from the forwards were rewarded by 2 excellent oals for Stroud.  The first was from an inch perfect pass from Hannah Scott to Evie Robb who was nicely positioned on the penalty spot and the second was the result of a fine, hot footed, solo run from Evie Robb who fired the ball past the Bretforton keeper.

The Bretforton side was young, fast, well drilled and desperate to win the match.  Stroud tired slightly in the last 15 minutes of the game giving just sufficient space for Bretforton to equalise.  GK, Aleasha Holder, was once more phenomenal in goal;  the defence stopped many of the Bretforton attacking runs but on at least half a dozen occasions the captain had to stop a direct shot on goal.  In the closing minutes Bretforton had a run of short corners but the determined Stroud team did enough to come away with a valuable league point.
