GAME BALANCED ON A KNIFE EDGE!

The Stroud team's incredible enthusiasm meant that during the first half everyone wanted to be involved in the game at every stage and the team structure became unstuck.  During the second half the structure was regained and the team settled into its normal rhythm.  There were some great moves from Karen Whitehead to Sarah Scott on the wing and good  'moving into space' from all the other forwards (Issy Smith, Mandi Lewis, Sophie Wathen)  The team's attack was particularly impressive this week.  Stroud did not have the game all its own way and the result reflects the tussle in this game with the ball moving from end to end throughout the match.   Keeper Sara Price made some important saves, with defenders Lydia Wakefield, Jules LeBihan, Sian Freer, Marsi Whelen and Pauline Edgington all making inch perfect tackles at key times in the game.  Kathy Williams was unlucky not to be awarded a penalty for her direct shot on goal. Player of the match, voted for by the team, was Issy Smith.
