WESTFIELDS GO THROUGH TO THE SEMI-FINAL OF THE COUNTY CUP
Westfields went through to the semi-final of the HFA County Senior Challenge Cup with a pulsating 5-3 away win at West Midland League Premier Division side Wellington last night.
The game was played in atrocious conditions with driving rain throughout the game but the two teams served up an exciting end-to-end 8 goal thriller which saw Westfields go through to the semi-finals.
Westfields got off to a dream start by taking a 3-0 lead early on when Carlos Moreira fired home in only the second minute and then 5 minutes later Ben Miller let fly from the edge of the penalty area to put Westfields 2-0 ahead.
Then just after 36 minutes’ play Aidan Thomas shot Westfields into a 3-0 lead after good approach work by Jamie Molyneux but before the break Wellington came back with two gift goals when Saul Thomas and Nobodt finished off mistakes by the Westfields defence to make the game a closer encounter for the second half.
However, Westfields got back into their stride in the second half and in the 59th minute a superb cross by Alex Hainault caused problems in the Wellington defence and Aidan Thomas raced in to put Westfields 4-2 ahead.
Westfields then made it 5 when livewire Jamie Molyneux went on a mazy run and skipped past the Wellington keeper before rounding the last defender and netting to put Westfields into a comfortable 5-2 lead before Wellington kept in the game with a late goal when Paul Jones put a wicked shot into the box which deflected off Westfields’ defender Kane Kahaki.
All in all a good game of football but Westfields deserved their place in the semi-final.
