WESTFIELDS WIN LOCAL DERBY
Westfields secured a fine 3-1 home win over local rivals Stourport Swifts on Saturday to earn another important 3 points to keep them up in 2nd spot in the Midland Football League Premier Division.
The game at allpay.park attracted a good crowd but it was the visitors who took an early lead when Matt Hanson seized upon a loose ball in the 6 yard box to blast the ball home after Ian Havard initially saved the first shot in the Westfields goal.
However, it did not take Westfields too long to draw level when they were awarded a free kick on the edge of the penalty area and Craig Jones’ thunderbolt was brilliantly parried by the Stourport goalkeeper but Ben Hayes was first to the ball to head home the rebound to put Westfields level.
Westfields then began to continue their attacking style of play and right on the half time whistle Jamie Molyneux seized on a half chance to blast the ball home to put Westfields 2-1 in front at the break.
After the interval Westfields picked up the pace again and increased their lead when good work between Sam Gwynne and Jamie Molyneux found Molyneux in space and he laid on an unselfish ball to Ben Hayes who seized on the opportunity to put Westfields further ahead with a low shot in the far corner of the net.
This gave Westfields a great cushion at 3-1 ahead and despite the fact that Stourport came back well the home defence under former Stourport Swifts central defender Paul Hurrell did well for Westfields.
The Stourport keeper then made a tremendous save from an Alex Hainault thunderbolt as Westfields kept up the pressure in an entertaining end-to-end game which saw Westfields’ 3 points keep them up in 2nd spot ready for this week’s top-of-the-table clash away at Worcester City, kick-off 3pm at Bromsgrove Sporting on Saturday.
The following week Westfields are back in action in the FA Vase when they welcome Leicester Nirvana to allpay.park on Saturday 1st December, kick-off 3pm.
