It didn’t take long for the Highlanders to get aggressive as they scored three goals in the game’s first 10-minutes. The first score came courtesy of Primo Cavarrubias off a nice pass from Bubcarr Jobe just three-minutes into the game and the Highlanders lead 1-0.

In the next seven-minutes Bubacarr Jobe would go to work, scoring the next two Highlander goals as the Highlanders were in control early with a 3-0 lead just 15-minutes into the first half.

Westfield would get a wet ball to bounce awkwardly deflecting off Highlander goalkeeper Simon Boehme’s hands for their only goal of the match to make it a 3-1 Highlander lead with 18:00 remaining in the first half.

Just before the half, Tony Arana gets a nice header to find the back of the net with just 31-seconds remaining as the Highlanders take a 4-1 lead at halftime.

In the second half, Westfield had a couple of shots on goal, however didn’t threaten. Bubacarr Jobe finished off a spectaular game with another amazing goal in the 53rd-minute as the Highlanders take it 5-1 over Westfield. Jobe finished the match with three goals and an assist.

With the win, the Highlanders improve to 19-0-1 overall and advance to the Area round next week to face the Lake Travis/Round Rock winner.
