Seven Up 27
IT was a crucial game for both Stroud and Seven Up, so both teams came out fighting from the starting whistle.
With some steady play, Stroud slowly started to pull into the lead with good attacking play and accurate shooting from Amie Watkins (GA) and Kath Portbury (GS).
By half-time Stroud had taken a good lead however some tactical changes from Seven Up resulted in Stroud slowly losing their lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
However, Stroud's defence quickly adapted with Nikki Fletcher's (GK) quick thinking and stopped Seven Up's attack to ensure Stroud's very much needed win.
