LLANDILO, Westmoreland — Petersfield FC and George's Plain FC scored contrasting but lopsided wins in Friday's second-leg semi-finals at Llandilo Sports Complex, to qualify for the final of the Westmoreland Football Association/Dujon Construction Major League.

Petersfield FC led Westmoreland Police 6-1 from the first leg and won 8-0 on Friday for a massive 14-1 aggregate win, while George's Plain overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit to beat Little London 6-0 — and 6-1 on aggregate — for their places in the play-off set for Thursday, also at Llandilo.

On Friday, Petersfield FC ran riot with three goals from Romario Whyte and two each from Clive Silburn and Oshane Neil, and led 4-0 at half-time. There was also an own goal.

Silburn gave them a 2-0 lead with strikes in the 16th and 27th minutes, Whyte added a third in the 38th, while Neil got his first two minutes later.

Neil added his second in the 60th minute, while Whyte went on to complete his hat-trick with goals in the 72nd and 82nd minutes.

In the other game, Brian Williams and Lando Campbell both got hat-tricks for George's Plain, who were 2-0 up at half-time.

Williams put his team level on aggregate as early as the fifth minute, then gave them the lead in the 40th minute before completing his triple in the 63rd minute.

Campbell took up where Williams left off and got his first goal in the 64th minute then added two more in the 74th and 77th minutes.
