WESTFIELDS AND STOURPORT DISH UP CHRISTMAS CRACKER
Westfields and Stourport shared a 6 goal thriller at allpay.park in the Christmas Bank Holiday Midland Football League fixture yesterday and lowly Stourport held high-flying Westfields to a 3-3 draw and the points were shared.
Westfields got off to a tremendous start when Richard Greaves headed Westfields into a first minute lead but Stourport hit back to snatch a 2-1 interval lead when Westfields defence were caught napping when Joe Phillips scored in the 20th minute when he chased a long through ball, beat Phil Glover, and slotted the ball home past the advancing Kieron Blackburn.
Stourport then had a good period of play and increased their lead in the 38th minute when a low shot was parried full length by Kieron Blackburn into the path of Jack Bailey who slotted home the ball in the 38th minute to put Stourport 2-1 in front at the break.
However, after the interval Westfields drew level when a cross to the far post was met by Richard Greaves but his effort was diverted past the keeper by Joe Phillips.
Westfields eventually snatched the lead again for the second time with a tremendous goal in the 69th minute when they were awarded a free kick on the edge of the Stourport penalty area and Craig Jones cracked in a fine left foot drive to put Westfields in front.
Westfields then began to get on top and Richard Greaves had a chance to make the points safe but his shot from 12 yards went straight into the hands of Dominic Richards in the Stourport goal.
Westfields then had to defend and Blackburn again made a fine save at full stretch and Glover headed out a dangerous cross before substitute Matt Pinder scored a 3rd goal for Stourport with just 3 minutes remaining when he tucked away a shot after a goal-mouth scramble.
In the final stages both teams had efforts and Jones put a shot over the bar before Stourport also headed a right wing corner over the bar as both sides went for the win.
This was Westfields’ fourth Midland Football League draw in the space of 5 games and they now need to win their 2 other Bank Holiday fixtures to keep in touch with league leaders Lye Town and Alvechurch.
Westfields: Blackburn, Rawlins, Plane, Glover, Sauntson, Reeve, Jones, Ham, Greaves, Harrhy, Miller.
Substitutes: Febery, Bonella, Ongono, Hunt, Matt Gwynne.
