The Lansdown Vixens side put in another impressive performance against the local team East Glos.
The Lansdown girls created some great chances in the first half with Liddy Ellis challenging her counterparts in midfield with some strong runs through the middle. New player Sophie Tagg had some great runs from the left into the dee and put the East Glos defence under pressure with fellow team mate Holly Wright. Lansdown maintained most of the possession in the first half and were unlucky not to score as they tested the East Glos keeper a number of times.
In the second half East Glos came out strong and created many chances through their midfield and forwards. The Lansdown defence had a lapse in concentration but goalkeeper Alice Hobbs made some great saves and kept Lansdown in the game. The Lansdown captain Kim Stevens had a great game at centre defence and when the pressure was on she encouraged her team to regain composure from some heavy attacks. Kim created some lovely play and worked hard to get the ball out of defence and into the midfield.
Both teams had chances up until the final whistle and the result reflected some strong defensive play from both teams. The Lansdown team was much improved again and the girls grow with confidence and ability every match.
Congratulations to the Lansdown goalkeeper Alice Hobbs who was voted as player of the match by the East Glos team for the second week in a row!
