DISPUTED GOAL SETTLES TIGHT TUSSLE

Westfields and Highgate United served up an exciting, end-to-end, Midland Football League Premier Division game on Saturday when the title-chasers ran out 3-2 winners with a late hotly-disputed goal in the dying minutes.

The game was played at a cracking pace throughout but sadly Westfields fell to their fourth consecutive home defeat but the result lifted Highgate into a title-chasing place.

The game swung from end to end from the first to the last minute but it was Westfields who snatched an early lead when Mark Magee put Westfields in front in the 17th minute from the penalty spot.

However, the lead was short-lived when Aaron Brown headed home, unchallenged, a corner to put the sides level before Westfields went ahead again just before the break when Ben Miller let fly with a sizzling shot into the bottom left-hand corner to put Westfields 2-1 in front at the interval.

After the break the game swung from end to end and with Jamie Molyneux leading the visiting attack following his move from Westfields to Highgate United the game looked to be edging towards Westfields’ way as the minutes ticked away on the clock.

However, in a grandstand finish Aaron Brown put Highgate level at 2-2 and then in the dying minutes a Richard Bachelor shot was adjudged to have been carried over the line by Alex Harris as the linesman gave the goal much to the surprise of the fans and indeed the players.

Even with only a few minutes ticking away on the clock Westfields had chances to draw level and Kingsford Adjei and Craig Jones both had shots charged down as the Highgate defence threw everybody in front of the ball to preserve their slender lead.

Highgate were relieved to hear the final whistle and to gain 3 valuable points in their pursuit of a promotion place.
