WESTFIELDS HIT BACK TO WIN
Westfields staged a dramatic fight back to win their 16th consecutive league and cup game of their 50th Anniversary season when they produced a fantastic display to win 3-2 over visiting Shepshed Dynamo from Leicestershire.
Westfields, who face a 4th round qualifying FA Cup tie this Saturday, were two goals down inside 15 minutes when the visitors ripped them apart in the opening stages, with some attractive approach play which produced early goals from Liam Hurst and Ben Haseley who gave Shepshed a 2-0 lead with only 15 minutes on the clock.
However, Westfields gradually found their feet and pulled a goal back before half time when Aidan Thomas burst forward and hit a superb right foot shot into the roof of the net to bring Westfields back into the game.
After the break Westfields were level with the best goal of the game when neat approach play ended with “man of the match” Craig Jones firing an unstoppable shot from 18 yards into the roof of the net to put the two sides level.
The game swung from end to end with Shepshed twice having shots cleared by Matt Reeve and Phil Glover before Matt Gwynne in the Westfields goal made a brave save at the feet of Ben Haseley.
Then in a grandstand finish after Greaves had hit the Shepshed crossbar and Glover had headed over, Westfields completed their dramatic fight back with a match winner when Sam Plane floated the ball into the penalty area and Sirdic Grant headed the ball against the post and Richard Greaves reacted first to stab the ball over the line for the winner and three valuable points to maintain Westfields’ lead at the top of the table.
