Stroud 2 dominate Gloucester 4, 5-1

Stroud Ladies 2XI took advantage of Gloucester 4's decision to play with a kicking back instead of a goal keeper with Elaine Noone and Mopsey Voss each hitting the back of the net within the first five minutes. Gloucester 4's started to take advantage of an extra outfield player, making it hard for Georgia Ford, Sophie Wathen, Victoria Sharpe and Emma Boyd to penetrate up both the left and right wing while Noone and Voss dominated the centre midfield. Then Iona Strang arrived, positioned herself at the top of D and scored with her first touch of the game. Elaine Noone scored her second, early in the second half from open play. Gloucester then pushed back and managed to convert a short corner, despite a strong defence from Claire Crosthwaite, Marcella Whelan, Ellie Freer and GK Emma Crowe.This was quickly replied by Stroud 2's neat 1-2 between Voss and Strang at the top of D, as Voss converted yet another short corner to make the final score 5-1.
