A standout performance from Stroud Ladies 3rd team!  The commitment at training paid dividends with a well practised short corner being fantastically executed.  Marsi Whelan's inch perfect pass to the right hand post allowed a poised, ready and calm Sarah Scott to push the ball into the goal behind the Bourton keeper.  The passing this week was exceptional with balls being moved between Stroud players before a tackle could be made by the opposition.  Mandi Lewis found some great space within the 'D' to fire home Stroud's second goal with Pip Robb providing a fine cross.  Some determined, skillful and creative work by Sophie Wathen enabled a perfectly placed Issy Smith to touch the ball across to Kathy Williams for the third goal.  The game was 'end to end' so the Stroud defence had to react to several short corners and Jules LeBihan, Sian Freer and Sara Price mark rose well to the occasion.  Sweeper Di Furlong barely put a foot wrong and Lydia Wakefield was rock solid as left back.
