HEREFORD Pegasus took city bragging rights after running riot during the first half and taking a 3-1 victory at Westfields.

Striker Josh Hunt came back to haunt his former side with Carlos Moreira and Jordan Williams also netting for the visitors.

Sixth placed Westfields had a three points advantage over 14th placed Pegasus at the start of the day.

The home side were the pre-match favourites, at a ground where the visitors do not have a great record and Fields also beat their city rivals in last season’s HFA County Cup final.

Straight from the kick off it was apparent that the game was unlikely to end goalless, as play flowed end to end with the visitors looking more dangerous as Jack Oxenham was forced to make several smart saves.

Just short of the 15 minute mark a free-kick by Williamson was spilled by the Fields keeper and Hunt was on hand to fire home against his former team.

Ten minutes later Cawley Cox raced in on goal but, was denied by a crucial blocking tackle by Cameron Davies.

However, the ball fell to Williamson who fired it inside the near post to double his side’s lead.

At this stage it was one way traffic as Pegasus cut through the home defence who had to reshuffle following the 25th minute sending off of Joel Edwards.

The pace of Williamson and Cox and linking with Hunt made it difficult for the Westfields defenders.

They were unable to find an answer being under pressure as their attacking players were being snuffed out of the game.

On the 30 minute mark a sweeping diagonal pass from fullback Connor Davies-Austin picked out Moreira who played a one-two with Hunt before finishing clinically into the far corner of the goal.

Westfields, in front of their stunned supporters huffed and puffed to half-time without seriously testing their former goalkeeper Matt Gwynne.

At half-time the hosts made a number of personnel and positional changes, in an attempt to get back into the game.

Phil Glover’s side gained more possession but were unable to penetrate the resolute Pegasus defence.

At the other end Cox chased a through ball from Williamson and his shot beat Oxenham, but was inches wide of the upright.

Pegasus were dealt a blow when Gwynne suffered a shoulder injury after falling as he claimed a cross from Dan Stoneman and was replaced by James Behan.

On the hour mark Fields pulled a goal back when Davies headed home from a Stoneman corner kick.

Buoyed by pulling a goal back Westfields went in search of a second goal and Sean Powell headed against the crossbar.

Young substitute Teddy Mee could have pulled back further goals. but failed to beat the Pegasus keeper.

With 14 minutes left Pegasus were also reduced to 10 men as Williamson saw red, but his side ran out winners.
