Ladies 2's v Newent 3 - 2nd half come back not enough!

Stroud Ladies 2s V Newent 3s 19th November 2016 Away Stroud Ladies 2nd team arrived at Newent hockey club, feeling positive after a good match last week and Newents poor results this season in our league. Newent started straight out of the blocks scoring their first goal within 5 minutes, and adding to that with a second goal in their next attack. Still feeling shell shocked Stroud conceded yet another goal, founding ourselves 3-0 down after 20 minutes was not part of our plan. It seemed as if we had forgotten how to play hockey ? Which was very unhelpful and extremely bad timing ! With our pride at stake we started to move the ball around with a couple of good attacks between Iona & Hannah we looked like scoring, and more like team we were last week. we started to win a few short corners one of which Bev converted scoring her first goal for Stroud and finishing the half 3-1 to Newent. After having a good talking to by our lovely captain , we started the second half energised and full of belief we could get a result out of this match. The pressure soon paid off with another short corner, which was converted by Bev her second of the match and for Stroud. still applying pressure we were caught on the break Newent scored again, at this point Macca went on walk about up front winning a short corner which she converted with ease. Was this the turn around we needed? unfortunately not!!! Newent attacked again and scored their 5th goal. We were not prepared to give up.Once again Hannah attacked and converted a long range shot. final score 5-4 to Newent.
