Alvechurch 2 - Dubidat 35, Marsh 45
WESTFIELDS LOSE FIRST MATCH
Westfields’ unbeaten 17 match run came to an end last night when following an unbeaten success in league and cup matches Alvechurch became the first team to beat Westfields this season with a 2-0 home win at Lye Meadow.
Westfields had to defend for long periods before Alvechurch took the lead with a superb opening goal in the 35th minute when Danny Dubidat headed home a right wing cross. Westfields then had a great chance to equalise five minutes later when Richard Greaves found himself with space in the 6yd box but he failed to get a good connection on the cross from Dan Polan.
Shortly before half time Alvechurch had a great opportunity to increase the lead when Matt Gwynne in the Westfields goal brought down Josh Marsh and Marsh saw his penalty kick brilliantly saved by Gwynne at the expense of a corner. However, just before the interval Marsh redeemed himself when he headed home a left wing cross to put the home side 2-0 in front.
After the break Westfields enjoyed better periods of play as they tried to put the title challengers under pressure and Phil Glover headed wide from a corner and other shots were blocked and saved by the resolute Alvechurch defence. Westfields pushed forward in an effort to get back into the game but Alvechurch were strong in defence and deserved their 2-0 win much to the delight of their home supporters and players who brought the Westfields unbeaten run to an end.
