L1 - FACE TOUGH CHALLENGE FROM YATE

Stroud played Yate away in the 7th league game of the season. Yate were quick off the mark applying a great deal of pressure to the Stroud team. Stroud absorbed this pressure well and closely marked their players making it difficult for Yate to convert their chances. Yates tenacity, however, paid off and they scored the opening goal. Stroud didn't let this dishearten them and at times were dangerous on the break. Yate fought back hard but Stroud, despite valiant efforts were unable to find the backboard in the first half of the game. Yate managed to pull through twice more before the half time whistle blew. This meant the Stroud were trailing 3-0 at half time.

During the second half Stroud continued to play well and develop their play. This hard work from the team played off and Stroud scored 2 goals in the second half. Both came from Lucy Moule following brilliant passages of play from the defence, through the mids and up to the attack. Unfortunately it wasn't to be in this game and Yate also scored 2 goals in the second half. The final score was 5-2 to Yate. Player of the match went to Goalkeeper Aleasha Holder who made a countless number of excellent saves throughout the game.
