Our first away match of the season saw us up against the St Josephs Falcons, the early season league leaders. Last season we saw a potential star in the making on the St Josephs side and this match was no different. James and Daniel R were tasked with marking him and did a brilliant job aided by some measured tackling from all of their team mates.

Westwood dominated from the off, but struggled to get into their usual passing rhythm, which saw the team playing more as Individuals than as a unit. This aside, the first half saw some strong running from Jonny, a number of shots on goal from Sam, Matthew, Daniel R, and some excellent defending from Oliver and James. This was to no avail, and surprisingly Westwood found themselves a goal down at half time.

The second half again saw Westwood dominate and pleasingly back into their usual rhythm. A passage of play in particular saw James, Matthew and Sam interchange a number of passes that nearly resulted in a goal. Strong tackling from Oliver, some fine runs by Daniel R and good supporting play from Daniel C resulted in a good second half performance from the team and four goals scored for good measure. Jonny was not called into action in our goal in this half, a testament to the team working as a unit both in defence and attack.

Well done to the under -9’s, George and David. Three wins on the trot, but more importantly with some good football skills on show.

Reviewer’s man of the match: James Tunney for keeping the St Josephs “star” quiet for the entire match with some strong defensive work but also for some of his attacking play and measured passing.
