Andrews leaves it late to score for Westella

Lewis Andrews popped up in the 80th minute on Wednesday evening to ensure his side and Westella took all three points against fellow league strugglers Teversal FC. The first half was one that didn’t really have much to shout home about with both sides giving the ball away numerous times inviting unnecessary pressure on to one another. Most notable opportunities fell to the home side with Westella unable to bundle the ball home with Danny Holiday heading straight in to the visiting keepers arms on 5 minutes. Holiday again had a further chance but lost control of the ball as it ended up in the keepers hands. Right on the stroke of half time Chris Short delivered a corner that fell at the back post following a smart save only for a last ditch block clearing Mike Hewitt’s close range shot. The visitors flew out of the blocks in the…
