Trojans ladies go into the Investec Women’s Western Conference winter break in mid-table, with a won three, drawn three, lost three playing record from the nine-match pre-Christmas programme.
Top of the log are runaway leaders Stourport, who celebrated a ninth straight win, courtesy of a seventh minute winner by Lottie Atkinson, which Trojans were unable to cancel out at Stoneham Lane.
Ironically, Stourport’s winner came after Trojans had forced two unconverted penalty corners.
Trojans played well in the opening 35 minutes, forcing one fine save out of Stourport goalkeeper Sophie Wood and enjoyed a fair share of the second half exchanges, but short corner routines were poor and their attacks lacked a real cutting edge.
Southampton Ladies lie third in South League Division 3B after Sue Merry and Natalie Romain inspired a 2-0 victory at winless Barnes, while the creditable 1-1 result with second placed Wanderers was Fareham’s fourth draw in ten outings.
