Westfields v Loughborough University

MATCH REPORT - Saturday, April 25, 2015

Westfields 4 - Palmer 8mins, Edwards 75mins, Cuss 78mins, Jones 82mins
Loughborough University 0

With relegation looming for Loughborough it was a shock to see Fields starting the brightest of the two teams. Early possession showing signs of dominance as they looked to put the final nail in the Loughborough coffin.

Craig Jones had an early chance for Fields but he sent his right footed shot into the Goalkeepers path, but it was enough to test the Keeper.

It wasn’t long before Fields were ahead, a short corner fell back to Jones who sent a driven ball across the box, the faintest of touches off Palmer diverted the ball over the line.

Fields onslaught continued as Craig Jones went close again but this time he sent his effort just wide.

Relegation threatened Lboro were struggling to get into the game. There best chance in the First half was a clear Penalty decision that was waved away by the referee. That summed up Lboro’s first half as they failed to mount any decent efforts towards Gwynne’s goal.

A couple of chances late on in the half failed to materialise into goals as Cuss brings brilliant reaction save from lboro GK before Craig Jones’ excellent touch allowed him space to fire wide.

HT: Westfields 1-0 Loughbourgh Uni

Late pressure continued early in the Second Half as Fields looked to kill the game off.

It didn’t quite work that way as Loughborough had their best chance of the game when their attacker sent a shot towards Gwynne who made a great reaction save with his feet.

Jones had been in the thick of the action in the first half and this didn’t change as he found space again before sending his shot wide.

Loughborough had a great free kick chance on the edge of the box, but wastefully send it over. More Loughborough pressure failed to test Gwynne in the Fields goal.

Two Quick fire chances put Fields two goals in front. Firstly Joel Edwards benefitted from a corner to head home before Jamie Cuss chased a through ball before sending his half volley in off the post.

Moments later and it was game over as Craig Jones added a fourth. Jones shifted the ball into space before curling home from 18 yards out. 

The Loughborough number 17 looked to cause problems as he entered the game to grab a consolation goal as he sent a shot into the side netting.

It was too late for Loughborough as Fields rectified their earlier defeat to Loughborough to relegate the student team on the last game of the season.
