HODGE DESTROYS WESTFIELDS IN SHAWBURY ROMP
Westfields were totally destroyed by Nathan Hodge who led the Westfields defence a merry dance in the New Year fixture at Shawbury on Monday as Westfields tumbled to a 5-1 defeat in the Midland Football League against the lowly West Midland League Champions.
Westfields were no match for Shawbury who dominated the game from the first to the last minute and scored their goals at crucial times.
Nathan Hodge put Shawbury United ahead in the 10th minute with a firm header from a right wing corner and then in the 22nd minute he doubled the lead with a fine solo goal when he raced past the Westfields defence to slot a low shot past the advancing Keiron Blackburn.
Westfields then had a couple of efforts which the home keeper saved but Westfields went in at the break 2-0 down.
However, after the break Westfields came out more determined and scored within a minute of the re-start when Chris Ham headed home a fine cross by Sam Plane but this was short-lived when a horrible mistake by Keiron Blackburn in the Westfields goal allowed Nathan Hodge to score his hat-trick from an acute angle after Blackburn had dropped a through ball.
Hodge then went on to claim his 4th goal midway through the half and then Shawbury completed their dominance when Keanu Cooper scored a spectacular 5th goal to give Shawbury a fine 5-1 win over 3rd place Westfields who missed an opportunity to close the gap on the leaders who were not playing and Lye Town who were beaten by bottom club Brocton.
Now Westfields face a home match against St Andrews at allpay.park on Saturday and then travel to relegation-threatened Brocton next Tuesday for an away match in the Midland Football League.
Westfields will certainly wish to get this poor performance out of their system and get their home form improving as they enter into the New Year.
Westfields: Blackburn, Rawlins, Plane, Sauntson, Febery, Reeve, Jones, Ham, Greaves, Harrhy, Miller.
Substitutes: Bonella, Grant, Polan, Hunt, Matt Gwynne.
