SPORTS HIT FOR SIX

Monday 17th January.............A dire performance from Westlands saw them thumped 6-2 away to Portland Reserves on saturday. Sports looked lacklustre and the home team soon smelt blood, scoring the opener with a free header from a corner in the 8th minute. Four minutes later it was 2-0. Westlands keeper Liam Samways rushed out to clear a through ball but his attempted clearance was blocked by a Portland forward who ran through to score in an empty net. Westlands tried to rally with a Duncan McCabe free kick well saved by the home keeper and then Steve Ormrod skied a shot from 8 yards over the bar. But any hopes of a fightback were quashed in the 27th minute when Sports gave the ball away in their own half and the Portland #9 ran into the box unchallenged and drilled a low shot into the far corner, 3-0. Sports central defender Jonny Manley then retired holding his back and he was replaced by Tim Trevett. Just before half time the home side made it 4-0 with a header at the far post after a soft free kick had been conceded. Half-time 4-0.

What a first half that had been, a Westlands team, lacking any energy and drive, had been taken to the cleaners and it looked like a big improvement would be needed in the second half just to stop this being a total embarrassment. 

Westlands did up their game in the second half and at last put the home side under a bit of pressure. This paid off in the 54th minute when a driven corner from Duncan McCabe was headed into his own net by a Portland defender for an OG. But Sports again shot themselves in the foot in the 65th minute, conceding a penalty for a tackle just inside the box. It was a bit soft but the Westlands players protests were met with a flurry of 3 (I think) yellow cards by the referee. I assumed these were sin bins for dissent, but apparently not as the players stayed on the pitch. The spot kick was thumped in to make the score 5-1. Two substitutions now for Westlands, Lewis Howchin and Malik Kamal replaced by Ben Pounder and Dan Ewens. In the 75th minute Sports generosity continued when the ball was presented to a Portland player who ran on to score with a low drive to make it 6. In the 80th minute the best moment of the match for Westlands came when a through pass put STEVE ORMROD in the clear and he drilled the ball into the net to make the final score 6-2.  MoM is a difficult one but goes to Finlay Cauldwell who plugged away down the left with a few good runs and crosses.

Line-up: Samways: Plumley, Manley, J.Green, Howchin: Barratt, McCabe, Kamal: Martin, S.Ormrod, Cauldwell.

Subs: Pounder, Park, Ewens.

Back at Alvington on saturday the Reserves were beaten 4-1 by high flying Sturminster Marshall in the Dorset Senior League. JOE BOON scored a nice consolation goal for Westlands.

On sunday the Under 18s were the only winners of the weekend when they progressed into the quarter-finals of the Somerset U18 League Cup, beating Stoke 2-1 at Alvington. Westlands dominated the first half and goals from JAMIE JARMAN and MORRISSEY TUCKER put us 2-0 up at half-time. Stoke came into the game more in the second 45 and pulled one goal back but were unable to get on level terms, missing a couple of good chances.


POINTS DROPPED

Tuesday 4th January...............Westlands slipped down to 5th place inthe league when they drew 3-3 away to Bridport Reserves yesterday. A patched up Sports team saw themselves 2-0 down after 30 minutes but a blistering 20 yarder from sub DAN CHISLETT made it 2-1 at half time. A goal on the hour from Bridport restored their two goal lead at 3-1 giving Sports a big challenge in the final 30 minutes. STEVE ORMROD stepped forward to head in an Adam Barratt cross to make it 3-2. Steve had another effort saved on the line and a Fin Cauldwell shot looked goalbound before being saved as Sports pressed hard. Eventually STEVE ORMROD made it 3-3 when he stabbed the ball home following a corner. Westlands had 3 big penalty shouts turned down by the officials in the second half but just couldn't find a winner.

Man of the match goes to two goal STEVE ORMROD, what a heart this lad has, never gives up.

Line-up: Cuff: Plumley, Wells, S.Ormrod, Howchin: Barratt, Payne, Green: Martin, Cauldwell, Darby.

Subs: Mullings, Chislett.
