L2: Top of the Table Clash

15 April 2018 at 18:25

Already promoted Stroud Ladies 2XI played top of the table Evesham and Badsey for their last match of the season. From the whistle, Evesham dominated, scoring 2 goals in five minutes. Stroud reorganised and the chances started coming but no goals. Evesham scored two more on the break before half time.

In the second half, Stroud started to pass around players and were rewarded with their first goal from Iona Strang. Evesham struck back with 2 more, then star player Amy Lloyd-Jones scored 2 more for Stroud. The Evesham responded and kept GK Emma Crowe-Smith very busy, giving a final score 8-3 and a win to Evesham.

Stroud L3 played with its usual determination, drive and enthusiasm.  The final score does not reflect the wave after wave of sustained attacking moves from Stroud.  All the forwards were in the firing line for glory, Sam Norman's glorious shot went just wide, Sarah Scott was unmarkable as she was time and time again in the right place at the right time, whilst Tabitha Dickson's runs up the right of the pitch were endless.  Claire Crosthwaite fired home Stroud's goal from one of the team's England team inspired short corners.  The mid-field of Kathy Williams, Marsi Whelan, Marie Louise Finch and Sian Freer worked tirelessly to support the Stroud forwards and to break down the Lansdown attack.  Grace Bedwell's marking of her player was impressive and that of Jules LeBihan crucial too but it was ultimately down to GK Ella Bullock to hold back the barrage of shots from the Lansdown forwards.  Di Furlong was awarded player of the match for her outstanding tackling and passing throughout the game.  This is the final post of the season for the lean, mean ladies' 3rd machine and we look forward to next season's challenges, opportunities and successes.  See you then!
