L1 - WIN FOR STROUD IN THE REMATCH!

Stroud hosted Lydney in the 2nd league game back after Christmas. Stroud knew it was going to be a tough game following on from a previous 5-1 defeat. As soon as the game began Stroud maintained their composure and played their own game.  Lydney also started well demonstrating some lovely passages of play with great triangles; possession was 50/50. Stroud decided to 3/4 press the opposition which worked brilliantly with Lydney struggling to get the ball through and break it down. This resulted in Stroud finding the back board via Cerys King following a long corner. At half time the score was 1-0 to Stroud.

Following the break Lydney didn’t miss any chances and were quick to equalise. Stroud then tightened their marking and upped the intensity.  This worked well for Stroud who managed to get another 2 goals in the second half. One from Amy Lloyd-Jones with a fabulous deflection and the other from Lucy Moule. The final score was Stroud 3 Lydney 1. Player of the match went to Cerys King who held the middle of the pitch excellently.
