WESTON’S winning streak came to an end after a hard-fought game away to Bristol and West.
The game began at the high pace that with many chances heading towards the attacking quarter. The first chance was created from a short corner, but Heal couldn’t quite deflect the ball into the net.
Another short corner landed in Weston’s hands soon after and after a well-drilled set play from Beer and S Neate, a deflection from Sully gave Weston the lead.
Bristol hit back, but Weston’s defence protected the D well and held off chances of a goal. A break along the full length of the pitch saw Heal make a great run forward, beating several defenders and scoring with a reverse strike.
The second half saw Bristol put pressure on the Weston defence and after a save from Canter, a Bristol player picked up a rebound to score. Great work from Etchells, Turner and recent edition Bryant in midfield, led to a near miss by McCarthy.
Confusion in Weston’s defence allowed Bristol players to break into the D and score to level the scores. Weston showed character and pressed forward to create another goal from Neate.
A mistake from an attacking short corner, saw Bristol run to the other end of the pitch to score and the home side found another goal to make it 4-3 in the last few minutes of the match.
Man of the match was awarded to Heal.
