Match Result: Westwood Park 3 – St Peter’s Iver Lions 4.

Scorers: Joseph Tunney 3

Having gone down 4-2 last week to the Jedi, the boys were keen to finish the season with a win.

The match started well with some good passing by Westwood and some strong attacks on the opposition’s goal. Unfortunately an early break by the Lions and a poor clearance out of our box allowed St Peter’s to take an early lead.

During the next 15 minutes Westwood had a number of encouraging attacks and shots on goal. The Lions’ goal keeper saved well but a delightful 1-2 play between Joseph and Ed Mundy saw Joseph shoot the ball wide past the keeper to level the score at 1-1. Two further shots by Joseph sailed over the cross bar with the home crowd suggesting that perhaps he would do better shooting from the half way line! Two minutes before half time a further attack by the opposition saw Ben make an excellent save but unfortunately the ball was pounced on by their centre forward and the score was 2-1 as we went into half time.

Five minutes into the first half, St Peter’s had the ball in the back of the net but an excellent off-side decision by the linesman kept the score at a manageable 2-1. Two minutes later a strong build up from our half resulted in Joseph scoring his second and levelling the tally at 2-2. Three minutes later Joseph’s third pushed the home side into a 3-2 lead but unfortunately from an excellent lofted corner, the Lions pulled back to 3-3 with a well worked attack. A couple of excellent saves by Rees kept the scores level but a few minutes later a well worked run down the line and a textbook cross saw the lions take a 4-3 lead with 5 minutes remaining. Further attacks on the home goal were excellently defended by Rohan and Oli Moir who with 30 seconds to play had a shot a goal which only just passed the post.

At the final whistle St Peter’s Ivor Lions had taken the match with a 4-3 win. However, it was probably one of the season’s best performances by Westwood Park U 12’s against a team who are firmly second in the league. All the boys must be congratulated on trying to play a good passing game of football which did result in 3 very well worked goals.

We ended the season in the mid table but showing that we can compete strongly against the best sides in the league. As always a massive thank you to Paul and his ‘dugout assistants’, Sandy and Hywel for all their hard work and dedication during the season.
