WESTFIELDS IN SEVEN GOAL THRILLER
Westfields last night preserved their unbeaten 8 match Midland League Premier Division run when they came from behind to beat 3rd place Walsall Wood 4-3 in an exciting end-to-end top of the table clash.
Westfields trailed 1-0 at the interval following a goal by Drew Aiton who shot the home side ahead midway through the first half.
However, a half-time substitution brought on Aidan Thomas and he had an immediate effect when he put the sides level in the 52nd minute when he slotted home a great cross from Dan Polan.
However, Walsall regained the lead on the hour when a shot from Karl Edwards was brilliantly saved by Matt Gwynne in the Westfields goal but the ball ricocheted against Jamie Sauntson and was deflected into the Westfields goal.
However, Westfields came storming back and a mazy run by Sirdic Grant provided a brilliant cross to Craig Jones after the tricky winger had jinked his way past 3 defenders and laid on a superb pass for Craig Jones who hammered the ball low into the Walsall net from 18yds.
Westfields then enjoyed their best period of play and took the lead for the first time in the 83rd minute when, from a Craig Jones corner, Richard Greaves outjumped the home defence to powerfully head home at the far post to put Westfields ahead.
Westfields then saw substitute Jamie Molyneux score a clinical goal on 86 minutes to put the visitors 4-2 ahead and heading for a fine victory until deep in injury Karl Edwards scored a late goal for Walsall Wood to make the score line a lot closer.
Certainly Westfields enjoyed their victory with a brilliant second-half performance to secure another 3 valuable points and give them their 8th consecutive league win.
On Saturday Westfields are at home to Highgate United in the Emirates FA Cup Second Round Qualifying, kick-off 3pm, at allpay.park when the match-day sponsors will be Hereford solicitors Lambe Corner of Bridge Street, Hereford.
