LADIES 2nd X1 FLEXED BEAUTIFULLY

Stroud flexed its muscles beautifully and many players showed their skill, flexibility and determination by playing out of position to ensure that the team fielded the strongest squad possible. Ross opened the scoring but it was not long afterwards that a fantastic 'along the back line' strike from Stroud's Hannah Scott was in the back of the net.

Stroud's defence was on its mettle throughout and the marking needed to be tight to contain the constantly changing Ross forward line.

There was some impressive across the pitch passing from Stroud as the team adapted to the 'attacking in triangles' formation of the Ross team. With some quick, accurate, stick to stick passing Ross were unable to match the pace of the ball and so Stroud's breaks were well executed and controlled. Despite a number of short corners and a fabulous attacking move in the dying minutes of the match, Stroud were unable to score an additional goal, but were pleased to earn another league point.
