WESTFIELDS HIT BY TWO LATE GOALS
Westfields suffered heartache for the second successive away game when, following their 3-2 away reverse at Quorn 2 weeks ago when they fell to a last minute defeat, they were again guilty of poor defending in the last few minutes of the game on Saturday at Coleshill Town when leading 2-0 with 89 minutes played they allowed the home team to gain a point with 2 goals in the 89th and the 92nd minutes to give them a draw from a match they should have won.
Westfields’ first-half display was superb as they pulled Coleshill to pieces as twin strikers Deqwon Eubanks and Nathaniel Lewars worked the Coleshill defence and in only the 10th minute Eubanks set up a chance for Jamie Cuss who rifled home a rising shot from 14 yards to give Westfields a dream start.
Westfields with both Joel Edwards and Sam Gwynne overlapping well were causing the Coleshill defence big problems and in the 30th minute Joel Edwards stabbed the ball home from 6 yards to increase the Westfields’ lead. Then just before half time, good work by Zac Sirrell put Deqwon Eubanks through on goal but his fierce drive was brilliantly saved by Jay in the Coleshill goal.
Little had been seen of the Coleshill attack but after the interval the home side picked up the game and began to get into the game and put the Westfields defence under pressure and Joel Edwards made a superb goal-line clearance, then Gwynne in the Westfields goal saved well from Shane Benjamin.
Coleshill mounted strong pressure in a bid to get back into the game and with the final minutes ticking away Westfields’ defence failed to take the pressure when Phil Glover conceded a throw-in and the Coleshill long throw-in was not cleared and as the ball bobbled about Luke Edwards pounced to pull a goal back.
Then deep into injury time Coleshill were awarded a penalty when Phil Glover brought down Tom Wheale, and Shane Benjamin sealed a late point for Coleshill with the resultant penalty kick for a 2-2 draw.
