WEYMOUTH Cougars played out a 2-2 draw with Westlands, leaving their hopes of securing second position in Dorset League Division One in the balance.

Westlands took the lead and hopes were draining, as they were also awarded a penalty, which they cleanly slotted home to leave the Cougars’ hopes dwindling.

But heads did not go down and the Cougars came on in the second half, determined to turn the game around.

Weymouth maintained good possession of the ball but were unable to capitalise until the closing stages when just minutes before full time, William Walden had a long-range effort which neatly dipped in over the goalies head.

Then with just seconds to spare, Walden took another long range chance, which he accurately targeted into the corner of the net to cap a well-deserved comeback.
