Weston run out of steam at home to Keynsham

Weston slipped to a home defeat against Keynsham.

WESTON ran out of steam in their latest league match against Keynsham, the visitors leaving with a 4-2 victory.

Weston started the game strongly, moving the ball around the damp pitch well. Jake Turner put through Gareth Hawkes through for an early chance, which wasn’t capitalised upon.

However, with Weston still regrouping from the previous attack, Keynsham built from defence to midfield and the opposition went through the home defence to take the lead.

Weston replied positively when Dave Beer pinged the ball from halfway into centre forward Sam Neate, who slipped the ball to Matt McCarthy to slotted the ball into the corner for the equaliser.

Weston built on their play using all their players, with James Hector and Paul Ninnis providing support from defence to the engine room in midfield and scored again to take a half-time lead.

After the break, Keynsham quickly earned a short corner from which they hit the backboard with a straight strike from the top of the D. The visitors continued to press and took the lead with a fine goal.

Keynsham broke quickly again, having attacks thwarted by last-ditch flying tackles from a Weston defence. However, this wasn’t enough, and with only no subs left Weston tired and conceded a fourth.

Weston will look to bounce back on Saturday with an away trip to Mendip and the second team home at Priory School to Bristol & West at 2pm.
