This hard work and determination payed off due to Yate's unforced error, allowing Jenny Howorth to score in an open goal. The final score was Stroud 3 Yate 2. Player of the match went to Emily Campbell who, throughout the whole game held her own in the defensive circle disallowing Yate many opportunities.
