Stroud L1 Shock Leaders

Stroud L1 caused a shock on Saturday, putting Division leaders, Jaspers, to the sword.  In a bottom v top clash, the bare 11 players from Stroud were not really anticipating victory, but a tremendous team effort and some neat hockey proved too much for the visitors.  Stroud took the lead in the first half through a well-placed Ellie Towler short corner strike and went 2:0 up before half time when Claire Crosthwaite’s goal-bound shot was deflected by a defender over the Jaspers’ keeper.  Within a minute of the second half starting, Stroud’s lead was halved and a torrid 15 minute spell could have meant curtains for them.  Their resolute attitude, self-belief and team spirit paid dividends and they frustrated the visitors by hanging on to claim all 3 points in a game from which they never expected anything.  Super stuff – keep it going for the rest of the season.
