OWN GOAL SETTLES HARD-FOUGHT VICTORY

Westfields recorded their second victory in the space of 2 days in the Midland Football League when they overcame a strong high-flying Coventry Sphinx team 1-0 at allpay.park last night.

The match was played at a terrific pace from start to finish with both teams looking for 3 points to gain a top 6 finish at the end of the season.

Both teams opened at a cracking pace and it was Coventry who forced the early save from Alex Harris in the Westfields goal when he dived full-length to cut out a menacing right-wing cross.

At the other end both Aidan Thomas and the tricky Kingsford Adjei caused problems to the visitors’ defence but at the interval the sides went in goal-less.

After the break Westfields got a tremendous start within 2 minutes after the interval when a swift move down the left-hand flank saw Sam Plane’s well driven cross from the left deflected into his own net by Sam Wanless.

This goal gave Westfields a great lift and within 10 minutes they should have been further ahead when a tremendous through-ball from Craig Jones found Aidan Thomas in space and he rounded the keeper only to fire against the retreating goalkeeper’s legs.

Westfields then mounted good pressure with Kane Kahaki and Alex Hainault working tirelessly in midfield and Kingsford Adjei causing problems up front.

However, it was the visitors who came back strongly and twice Alex Harris clutched high crosses from underneath the crossbar as the high-flying visitors came in search of an equaliser.

Both sides played competitive and non-stop football and the visitors threw everything at Westfields in the dying minutes to try and create an equaliser but the Westfields defence with Sam Plane and skipper Phil Glover stood firm to hold out for 3 valuable points.
