L2 in Winning Form

Stroud were determined to gain those all important points this week and worked hard to beat Bourton 2 goals to 1. Stroud's first goal came just before half time with a super pass from Ellie Mapletoft up the right wing to Kathy Williams, on to Debbie Ratcliffe who neatly passed it to Claire Crosthwaite in a good position on the penalty spot. Stroud's second goal was a solo run from Iona Strang who put the ball into the net from an almost impossible position on the base line. Bourton's most impressive player managed to elude her Stroud marker for just a moment and went on to score for her side. It was not enough to take the victory away from Stroud whose attack was very much on its mettle for the whole match. With a constantly rotating team of players and of positions the Stroud team had to be alert to changes through the match and it coped admirably. The passing was accurate, the marking excellent and the attack determined. The play was not as wide as the team usually operates in part as the halves and backs were pulled into the centre of the pitch to mark their Bourton opponents.
