Stroud (sponsored by Connexus) continued their unbeaten start to the season with a resolute 2-1 win over a determined Lansdown side. It was shock and awe in the first 10 minutes by Stroud as they played some exquisite hockey to go 1-0 up. Great interchange play by Alex Elder and Tim Norman allowed Nigel Sherwood a shot on goal that Dom Creech helped on in to the corner of the net. And for the rest of the first half Stroud piled on the pressure but could not put the game to bed despite Nigel Williams coming close with a well drilled shot from a short corner that the goalkeeper kicked away and the rebound being cleared off the line by a Lansdown defender. As the 2nd half started Lansdown pressed and levelled the score with a fine move which punished Stroud for not taking their chances. Again,  Stroud piled the pressure on and Chris Bargh came close with a sweet short corner strike well saved by the goalie and Tim Norman being denied with a vollied goal line clearance. Ollie Roberts toiled and tried to turn the skill on by turning the keeper but he was denied, with only minutes left though he managed to lift the ball over the keeper from an acute angle to score the winner and send the team joint 2nd with Stroud 2XI after one game with Newent the only other side to register a win in the league.
