AIMING FOR GREATNESS AND GAINING 3 POINTS

Stroud Ladies 2nd X1 were aiming for greatness this week and after winning their match against higher placed Bretforton they felt great indeed!  The Stroud side looked well composed throughout the match and high from last week's victory against Cirencester they used their passing skills, running with the ball abilities and accurate tackling to keep the Bretforton team under control.  There was some smashing work up the right hand side of the pitch between Lizzie Woods, Candice Johnson and Freya Robb.  No to be outdone, the left hand trio of Katie Elder, Kathy Williams and Harriet Smith were just as attacking.  With the Bretforton team playing much of the game in the centre of the pitch, it was down to the team's backbone of Iona Strang, Victoria Sharpe, Emma Crowe, Pauline Edgington, an impressive Hannah Scott as sweeper and keeper Aleasha Holder, to manage the attack.  All the goals were during the second half and Stroud's were expertly scored by Freya Robb and Iona Strang.
