POLISHED PERFORMANCE AGAINST THE TOP OF THE LEAGUE

Chipping Campden are top of the league and Stroud were delighted to take the lead in the first half and put 2 goals past the Campden keeper.  An inch perfect pass from Freya Robb to Hannah Scott provided the opportunity for Hannah to 'fly' into the attacking D and fire the ball past the Campden keeper.  Stroud's second goal came from a fabulous move down the right, initiated by Ellie Mapletoft, involving Katie Elder, Freya Robb and Iona Strang with the pass across the D enabling a well positioned Hannah Scott to reverse stick the ball into the goal.  As last week, the attacking move was a replica of the skills practised at training and it was inspiring to see the movement both on and off the ball.  Chipping Campden do not hold top spot in the league by failing to rise to a challenge and they did just that.  The Stroud defence was challenged many times with balls stopped on the line by keeper Aleasha Holder, sweeper Claire Crossthwaite and defender Charlotte Bullock.  Despite their determination, continued efforts and commitment the more youthful Stroud team was unable to beat the 'retrenched', experienced and equally determined Chipping Campden side.  The Stroud players left the pitch with their heads held high after a very polished performance. With one league match left this season the Stroud team will be aiming for 3 points to be absolutely certain that they remain in Severn 2.
