The Moles suffer defeat at the hands of Westfield on a chilly Tuesday evening in Woking.
Westfield took the lead in the 11th minute when Archie Taylor found some space on the left wing and did well to get the better of Jimmy Bamgbose and he drove into the area and fell over the leg of Liam Campbell and the referee pointed to the spot. Jake Better successfully converted from the spot.
The Moles then soaked up a bit of pressure before starting a counter attack ending Bamgbose being brought down by Taylor. Dontaye Whittaker slotted the spot kick well into the bottom left corner to make it three goals in as many games.
Westfield retook the lead midway through the first half when a Westfield corner was knocked down to Baxter who was able to turn and fire it into the left corner to double his tally for the game.
Both teams had great chances right on half-time. Firstly a swift Westfield move involving Manolis Gogonas, Baxter and Crossley who found some space in the area but Nicholas Harvey did well at his near post to deny him. Then the Moles should’ve been level when Whittaker found Troy Murray on the right who put in a great ball for Blesk Ekpengong but he was unable to keep his effort down from close range.
The Moles were level five minutes into the second half. Esprit finds Murray on the right who plays in Max Drake. He plays a teasing ball into the area and it is bundled in by Bamgbose – his first in Moles colours.
Westfield restored their lead minutes later after Jacob Breckon’s effort was deflected and completely wrong-footed Harvey. They added a fourth when Theo Lang’s long range effort also found the back of the net via a deflection. Jake Baxter completed his hat-trick when he nodded in a corner from close range – his sixth goal in five games.
They add a sixth through Mayoke Adaje after a great solo run and he added a second in injury time.
The Moles go again on Saturday when they face Hartley Wintney at the Iconic Stadium.
