Stroud take title in Girl's Under-19 thriller

Stroud beat West London Eagles 24-22 to be crowned girl's under-19 champions.

The West-country side, who missed out on the title by a single goal to Olympia Cannock last year, led 13-11 at half time.

They continued to maintain their slim advantage in a second half as tense as the first period, as a tactic of fast breaks and attacks down the wings bore dividends.

Stroud playmaker Alex Nielsen top scored in the match with 10 strikes. Eagles scoring charts were headed by playmaker Diana Fartais, with eight goals. 

Eagles keeper Akira Adeniran-Lowe also shone, with a number of excellent saves, including three penalty stops.
