In facing Bourton's 2nd team Stroud L3 faced their toughest opposition to date.  Bourton has been relegated from the league above and fought very hard indeed for the win.  Stroud were physically overwhelmed during the first half but in the second half used a different type of play, new tactics and a more flowing style of hockey.  A deliberate foul on Sarah Scott resulted in Stroud being awarded a penalty flick and Karen Whitehead rose to the occasion, expertly putting the ball in the top corner of the net.  A little later Sophie Wathen was perfectly positioned on the left hand post to push the ball into the net for Stroud's second goal.  Stroud was on the up and unfortunately there was insufficient time for the team to pull back the first half deficit.  A great performance from the team:  defenders Sara Price(GK), Di Furlong, Cordy King, Ellie Freer and Pauline Edgington; in mid-field Sian Freer, Marsi Whelen and Kathy Williams; on the forward line Sarah Scott, Lydia Wakefield, Sophie Wathen and Karen Whitehead. The team may have been down on goals, but it was never out of contention!
