Stroud's first home game of the season saw them take on a strong Redland UWE team.  Stroud immediately put pressure on Redland UWE and were the first to win a short corner. Redland UWE did well to clear the ball and looked dangerous on the attack.  Tireless work from the whole of the Stroud team paid off meaning that Redland were unable to convert their breaks of play into goals. Stroud were first on the score sheet with some lovely play from the mids and forwards  with Clare Oliver scoring the goal. This was shortly followed by another goal this time from Lucy Moule. Redland UWE were not giving in though and their persistence in attack meant the score at half time was Stroud 2 Redland UWE 1.The second half saw Stroud demonstrate some great triangle work from the good structured play enabling Stroud to score their third goal from Clare Oliver.  Redland UWE also started the second half strongly and the ball was end to end. Redland managed to get another goal  narrowing the scoreline to 3-2. Stroud were not over yet and the defence did well at clearing any balls coming into the defending 25. This along with a good press from the Strouds mids and attacks meant the Stroud finished the game winning 4-2 with a final goal from Lucy Moule with a straight strike from a short corner. Player of the match went to Clare Oliver for her efforts throughout the whole game.
