Westdyke CC Under 17s reacted from their recent 4-0 defeat to Banks O'Dee Albion in the league to bounce back and win the Regional Trophy with a 4-2 win over Albion, a Kris Cocker brace alongside shots from Greg Cowie and Euan Walker was enough for the trophy to head back to Lawsondale.
Westdyke came out of the blocks early doors and the Albion defence was really tested early on in the game. A corner kick found Rocky Troup who had a header at goal straight at Lucas Muller in the home goal.
Dave McGinlay's side opened the scoring after six minutes, a long ball from Rocky Troup bounced off James Connelly who came into Kris Cocker who produced a fine header to knock the ball past Muller to give Westdyke the dream start.
Westdyke pressed Albion again immediately from the centre giving Albion no time at all on the ball, three minutes later it was 2-0. A good ball was squared across goal by Greg Cowie with Kris Cocker there to tap the ball home to give Westdyke some breathing space.
It was probably the wake up call Albion needed, they came out a bit more rejuvenated and started to create their own attacks and they reduced the deficit on 18 minutes. A shot from Saiyed Ahmed was denied by Jamie Butler however Andrew Mitchell was there to guide the ball home.
Albion then tried to pull level with Max Scoular having a shot saved by Butler in the Westdyke goal. Andrew Mitchell nearly got a brace but another good stop from Butler denied the midfielder.
Westdyke restored their two goal advantage seven minutes before the interval after a good ball by Euan Walker played in Greg Cowie who slotted home and the two goal advantage was rewarding for the football played in the first half.
