WESTFIELDS EARN LEAGUE DOUBLE

Westfields picked up their 6th MFA League double of the season when they won 2-1 away at Willenhall Town on Saturday to maintain 7th spot in the MFA League table.

Westfields had to work very hard to achieve the win over a Willenhall Town side battling to avoid relegation for the second consecutive season.

Westfields had beaten the “Lockermen” 4-1 at allpay.park earlier in the season but on Saturday they found the Willenhall side a much tougher nut to crack as they held Westfields to a goal-less first half.  Jamie Moore was the busier of the 2 keepers in the opening 45 minutes and twice saved well from the home attack, while Westfields’ twin strikers Richard Kear and Daryl Addis were snuffed out by the strong home defence.

However, Westfields broke the deadlock in the 66th minute when Westfields were awarded a free-kick 25 yards out and Craig Jones bent his free-kick around the Willenhall defensive wall into the top corner of the net to give Westfields the lead.

Scott Jackson then twice headed away dangerous Willenhall free-kicks before Westfields’ manager Sean Edwards sent on substitute strikers Mark Davis and Aaron Hopkinson and this proved to add more pace to the front line when Sam Harrison put Hopkinson clear and the youngster raced through on goal to round the Willenhall keeper, Liam Flynn, to put Westfields 2-0 ahead with a fine solo goal.

Willenhall still came back at Westfields and pulled a goal back in the 88th minute when Westfields’ defence only cleared a ball to the edge of the penalty area and Matt Whitehouse blasted a fierce drive low past Jamie Moore which flew into the net off the post to put Willenhall back in the game.

The Black Country side forced 2 late corners but Westfields’ defence stood firm to register their 18th League win of the current campaign.
