A THIRD goal courtesy of substitute Luke Williams proved vital as Westfields held on for a fine 3-2 away victory at Pershore Town.

Westfields had to work hard for their victory and the new pairing at the heart of their defence Cam Davies and Brandon Jennings gave an inspired performance.

However, it was Pershore who took an eighth minute lead when they broke up an attack and moved effectively up field through before Toby Nicole rounded Keiron Blackburn to fire the hosts ahead.

Westfields came back into the game and both Dan Stoneman and Archie Muirhead went close before the visitors drew level when Cam Davies headed home a Stoneman free-kick.

After the break Scott Russell’s side got off to a perfect start when Ollie Barnes headed home an Archie Muirhead corner to put his side 2-1 ahead in the 52nd minute.

Westfields battled hard but the home side began to get back into the game and only superb defending by Jennings and Davies prevented an equaliser.

Fields then increased their lead in the 75th minute when the visitors only partially cleared a corner and the ball fell invitingly for substitute Williams who hit the ball into the top corner of the net off the underside of the crossbar.

The visitors were subjected to constant pressure from Pershore and they pulled a goal back through Oli Durne with eight minutes remaining.

Pershore then threw everything forward but they met a stubborn Fields defence who hung on.

Hereford Pegasus moved into the Hellenic Premier top 10 following a convincing 3-0 victory at Longlevens AFC.

Carlos Moreira gave Pegasus a 12th minute lead which they retained for the remainder of the first half.

On the hour mark Jamie Price doubled the visitors lead before Moriera found the net again from the penalty spot.

There was more success for Hereford Pegasus the following day when their women’s side won 3-2 at Sedgley & Gornal.

Harriet Adams scored a brace and Sarah Bishop the other as Pegasus Ladies moved up to fourth in the West Midlands Women’s Football League Division One South.
