Ladies 3rd team face fast opposition!

Once again the Stroud team piled on relentless pressure in the final 10 minutes, this week against Colwall, and the team was unlucky not to have equalised.  The Colwall side started strongly and scored first:  Stroud's Karen Whitehead equalised moments later from a great move down the right wing.  Colwall then flooded the Stroud defence and at half time Stroud were 3-1 down.  Never daunted, disheartened or weakened the Stroud side honed its skills more tightly, settled down and a solo run from Sophie Payne provided a second goal for the team.  There was lots to be proud of in the match, the passing was accurate, Stroud's retention of the ball in the second half was excellent and the runs to the back line with subsequent passes into the circle were well drilled.  A smashing pass from Marsi Whelan, deflected in front of goal by Karen Whitehead just touched the side of the Colwall's keeper's pads and went wide.  A frustrating result but a good performance against a young, well drilled side.
