Firsts v Westfield 1-2


Having been the dominant side for most of the ninety minutes losing to a harshly awarded free kick at the death of this home league game against top of the table Westfield was a bitter pill for Balham to swallow. The visitors were, as might have been expected, well drilled and always dangerous. It was Balham however who played the better football. Having fallen behind to a deflected goal they got level after a Tomasz Wocial cross cum shot found the net in the second half. The game opened up after that and both sides had chances. It looked to be heading for a point a piece though as it went deep into time added on. Unfortunately for Balham, as sometimes happens, there was a nasty sting in the tail, a nasty sting that will no doubt continue to hurt until the next time a football is kicked in anger.
