Competition: U14's West Region Cup
Venue: Ralston Sports Centre
Date: 14/03/15
This 2001 West Region cup tie played on Astro Grass at Ralston Sports Centre, Paisley allowed both teams to play some good quality football on the 4G surface. 
Westerton started brightly with the midfield dominating the game and deservedly went ahead midway through the first half with a great strike from fully 25 yards out.
St Peter's started to show signs of getting back into the game and were denied on several occasions by a great performance from the Westerton goalkeeper. 
However, St. Peter's got the equaliser their play deserved when from a cut back and a great touch, the St Peters wide midfielder fired high into the net to make it all square at half time. 
Half Time : St Peters FC 1-1 Westerton 
St Peter's had to come from behind again early in the  2nd half after Westerton scored a great chipped goal. 
It was then St Peter's turn to take the lead and scored three really good goals in quick succession, one a great run and finish followed by a powerful header from a corner and the St Peter's striker making it 4-2 slotting home after being through one on one with the keeper. 
However, great spirit shown by Westerton resulted in a 30 yard free kick proving too much to handle for the St Peters goalkeeper making it 4-3 and game on in the last 10 minutes. 
Chances came at both ends in the closing stages but the match finished 4-3 to St Peters who move into the Quarter Finals. 
Full Time : St Peters FC 4-3 Westerton
