WESTFIELDS HIT FOR SIX IN FA CUP
Westfields were swept aside by a no-nonsense Route 1 Romulus side in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup when they were swamped 6-1 away at Romulus on Saturday.
Romulus, who were relegated from the Northern Premier League last season into the Midland Football League, were in rampant mood from the 3rd minute when they opened the scoring with a free kick from Kris Taylor who hit the back of the net from just outside the penalty area.
Westfields were never really in the hunt and were chasing the game from the start.
Luke Richards increased the lead in the 25th minute when a mis-placed header by Paul Hurrell left the Romulus striker in acres of space and he volleyed past Keiron Blackburn.
Westfields did have a moment to get back in the game when Sam Gwynne and Mark Magee set up a great chance for Ben Miller who made no mistake from close range to bring Westfields back in the game just before the half time whistle.
However, after the break the goals flowed as Westfields had no answer to Romulus’ Route 1 direct attacking football and they grabbed further second-half goals when Mitchell Piggon scored a hat-trick and then substitute Dimitri Dunkley also got on the score sheet when he followed up a penalty which Keiron Blackburn brilliantly saved from Piggon, only for the Romulus striker to react quickest and fire the ball low into the net.
Westfields’ performance was disappointing on a 3G pitch which Romulus found to their liking with their direct play to the front men and Romulus will now go on to meet Newcastle Town at home on Saturday 25th August in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup.
On Wednesday night now Westfields are back on League duty they travel to much-fancied Highgate United and then on Saturday they have a home game at allpay.park when they meet Leicestershire side Shepshed Dynamo, kick-off 3pm.
