L3 - Nip and tuck with goals galore!

Stroud Ladies' 3rd team's performance was exceptional this week, with the game too close to call until the final whistle.  The passing was excellent with the forward line of Hannah Scott (player of the match), Sarah Scott, Claire Crosthwaite and Sam Norman working together like a dream.  Marie-Louise Finch made some fabulous runs and passes from the right half position many of which were capitalised upon by the forwards.  It was good to welcome Sam Summers back to the side, particularly when she cleared a ball from the goal line!  Stroud's goals came from Claire Crosthwaite, a direct, rapid shot on goal, Hannah Scott, from a fast paced solo run up the pitch, and Sam Norman as usual striking the ball with unstoppable force.  The Stroud short corner awarded in the dying seconds of the match was just centimetres wide of its target.  The defence of Sara Price (GK), Di Furlong, Kahy Williams, Marsi Whelan, Jules LeBihan and Pauline Edgington worked hard to contain the Lansdown attack and were successful time after time.  Against the team who are second in the league this was a fine performance from the Stroud team.
