Stroud's eventual control of the mid-field, with a rotation of 4 players filling the 'half' roles meant that the Chipping Campden attack found it much harder to break through during the second half of the game.  Conceding goals from some extremely well practised short corner routines during the first half of the match, Stroud found it difficult to surge forward from the halfway line.  United in its determination to grasp the game, the team came out in the second half with some strong passing, good ball possession and some fine runs from the forwards earning them a corner from which Victoria Sharpe scored for Stroud.  Charlotte Bullock and Katie Elder, in their first league games were excellent at the left back position and their marking was commendable.  Ellie Mapletoft and Claire Crosthwaite were rock solid in defence and, having lost the first half 4 goals to 0, Stroud drew the second half 1 - 1 against this strong, top of the league, side.
