Westville bedazzle Glenwood

2014-08-26 00:00

SOME late game action saw Westville run out 4-1 winners over Glenwood in an action-packed match of soccer over the weekend.

Westville hosted Glenwood and started well from the kick-off, but were unable to capitilise on early chances that spurred the Glenwood side to gain dominance in the middle stages of the first half.

Westville’s keeper Jesse Smit was tested several times, but kept some shots out, while the home side failed to put away two good chances.

The teams went into the dressing room with a goalless scoreline at half time.

Glenwood were the first to put the ball into the back of the net as striker Michael Howard scored a brilliant individual effort after getting the ball on the right flank.

He beat two would-be defenders and chipped the ball over Smit to give his side the lead.

However, just a minute later, a blunder between a Glenwood defender and goalie saw them concede an own goal to make the score 1-all.

Westville then dominated the final 15 minutes of the game, taking the lead in the 54th minute when Tony Mahlangu put the ball over the Glenwood defence for right winger Shane Ball to chip the ball calmly over the Glenwood goalkeeper.

Mahlangu claimed his second goal not long after.

The striker stole the ball from a Glenwood defender and slotted the ball into the bottom right corner to make it 3-1.

Kyan Braithwaite put the final nail in the coffin when he volleyed a good cross to make it 4-1.

In the only other soccer match of the weekend, DHS beat Maritzburg College 3-1 in Durban.
