This was the second meeting of the clubs in the league this season and like the first which ended 4-3 to Parkmoor it produced another close and exciting match.
Both teams were just settling into the match when Parkmoor took the lead after just five minutes. Ben Caulfield, Parkmoors striker picked up the ball on the edge of the West Park box and without hesitation turned a fired a shot just inside the right hand post catching the goalkeeper unawares.
This settled Parkmoor who controlled the early part of the game, however West Park's confidence grew as the half progressed and they were starting to exert pressure with some controlled passing and retention of the ball, although Parkmoor keeper was rarely troubled. 
Parkmoor though were creating the better chances hitting quickly on the break and it was from one of these breaks that they gained a free kick about thirty yards out on the left hand side. A terrific delivery curling into the six yard area was attacked first by midfielder Adam Love, the ball came off his hip with just enough momentum to take it past the keeper and double his sides advantage.
Things looked like staying that way till half time, when West Park got a goal back. A terrific curling effort from the left hand side of the box, high past Parkmoor keeper into his top left hand corner. 
Half Time : Parkmoor Boys Club 2-1 West Park United
Parkmoor started brightly in the second half but this time it was West Park who capitalised on a quick breakaway. A quick burst in to the box and shot across the keeper by West Parks Centre Forward and the game was all even at 2-2.
However straight from Kick off Parkmoor were back in front.  The ball was played long through the middle and Caulfield chased it down as West Parks defence  hesitated. Taking the ball through some soft challenges he found himself in the box with time and calmly picked his spot to restore Parkmoors lead.
Both team continued to press for goals, with Parkmoor coming closest having several efforts cleared off the line.  
This failure to score almost let West Park in for a point as a terrific shot late on, left Parkmoors keeper Boyle stranded but the ball slid just past the left hand post.  
The victory and points were Parkmoor's cementing their place in the top half of the division, however the quality of West Parks performance should mean it will only a matter of time before they start to pick up some wins and climb the table.
Full Time : Parkmoor Boys Club 3-2 West Park United
