Westfields win 4-2 on penalties
WESTFIELDS THROUGH TO SEMI-FINAL OF LEAGUE CUP
Westfields progressed to the semi-final of the league cup following a 4-2 penalty shoot out after a 0-0 draw at Tipton Town last night, played over 120 minutes.
With suspensions to club captain Phil Glover & midfielder Anthony Robbins, manager Sean Edwards took the opportunity to give a number of his squad a start by making 5 changes to the previous two games starting line ups.
Fields dominated the first 10 minutes & could have taken an early lead but for a great save from the Tipton keeper Matt Sargeant but despite this Tipton hit the post.
In an end to end game Mark Davis was unlucky not to have scored in the 21st minute from a Jamie Addis freekick when Tiptons man of the match Sargeant made another great save tipping the ball over the post from his header.
A number of half chances went to both teams each side of the break but neither could make the crucial breakthrough.
Westfields made their first substitution in the 76-minute with Carl Morgan replacing Paul Casey.
With the game still at stalemate at the end of 90 minutes Richard Kear replaced a hard working Mark Davis & he had a great chance to score in the 93rd minute having created the opening himself.
The vastness of the Tipton Sports (Athletic) Academy saw some quite long delays when retrieving the ball but the game was played in a fast but highly sporting nature & therefore it was somewhat surprising to see referee Mr Humphreys produce 9 yellow cards, 5 for Tipton & 4 for Fields.
In the penalty shoot out Westfields goalkeeper Jamie Moore made 2 excellent saves with Tiptons first & fourth efforts & some clinical finishing from Rich Kear, Carl Morgan, Scott Jackson & finally debutant Louis Bridges was enough to see Fields through 4-2 where they will play the winners of either Alvechurch or Stratford Town over 2 legs on March 8th & 15th.
