Dominant Westfield march on

Dominant Westfield march on - 14 Nov 2011 - Women's Football NewsWestfield 3 Oxford City 0
Woking-based club Westfield progressed to the First Round of the F.A.Women's Cup with a convincing 3-0 home victory over Oxford City. 
 
The London & South East Regional League Premier Division high fliers created a host of chances against their Southern Region League visitors, but it took 42 minutes to find a way past the resolute City defence. Westfield moved the ball around impressively on the very good Sports Park surface but were denied time after time by City keeper Jules Jefferis whose positioning and handling were generally excellent.. Ironically, the crucial first goal came from her one mistake of the match but, in reality,the overall result was rarely in doubt, despite a hard working display from the visiting team.
 
Laura Low had the early chances for Westfield but shot straight at Jefferis twice. Next it was the turn of Rebecca Sargent to have a series of three efforts on goal round the half hour, created by excellent interplay with Low and Louisa Stimpson. With Emma Barnes and Lizzie Laws bossing the midfield and Laura Hann dangerous on the wing, Westfield kept pressing, but it seemed that City would survive till the break until Westfield struck twice right at the end of the half
 
A Laws free kick on the right was met with a firm header from 15 yards by Hann. Jefferis seemed to be deceived by the bounce and the ball slipped through her hands into the net. Westfield doubled their lead almost immediately when a Sarah Brown cross found Sargent unmarked ten yards out and she finished well for a two-goal interval lead.
 
Oxford had forced a couple of corners and gone close with a header from an Emma Kidd free kick deflected wide of Emily Bourne's goal, but the score now reflected the balance of play. City battled on and tried to put Westfield under pressure all over the pitch but clear chances continued to fall the way of the hosts.
 
Oxford survived a penalty claim on 50 minutes, Hann had a powerful shot well held, then Jefferis made a brave save at the feet of Low, who was having a fine match. It was the sub Rebecca Galbraith who finally sealed the result on 68 minutes, bravely sliding in on the end of a fluent move up the left involving Brown and Low.
 
Westfield had further chances to extend the lead, Jefferis making another diving save from Hann, Sargent having a header saved and Low hitting the post. Oxford were denied a consolation in added time, Abbie Clayton-Hobbs' low goalbound effort from close range being well tipped round the post by Bourne with her left hand.
 
Westfield look a dangerous opponent for any team in the next round, with a number of players who have experience at a high level. Oxford City are recovering after relegation from the South West Combination and the loss of a number of players. Their only victories this season have come in the FA Cup and they must now hope to build on the good spirit and effort shown in these matches to climb up the league table.
 
Westfield: Emily Bourne, Sarah Brown, Alysha Frampton, Michelle Davies, Linsey Clarke, Lizzie Laws, Rebecca Sargent, Laura Hann, Louisa Stimpson, Laura Low, Emma Barnes. Subs: Rebecca Galbraith, Michelle Welford.

Oxford City: Jules Jefferis, Magda Serednicka, Katie Chambers, Emma Kidd, Nicki Olin, Abbie Clayton- Hobbs, Nyssa Wilks, Charlotte Franklin, Jenna Young, Abi Currie, Tish Varney. Subs: Rhiane Savin, Jo Drury.
