Deflections defeat Stroud

Gloucester's use of deflections to score 3 out of the 4 goals was, ultimately, Stroud's undoing. Goals scored by a 'touch from the stick' rather than a precise shot on goal is not a technique used often in Severn Division 2!  The clash against the new 'top of the table' was always going to challenge the Stroud side, but buoyed by a series of wins over the past few weeks Stroud were keen to tackle the stronger opposition.  The Gloucester team was well drilled, mobile and knew where their team mates were on the pitch and what they were likely to do with the ball.  Stroud did well to try and contain the Gloucester side and made some good attacking moves and were rewarded by short corners on a number of occasions.
