CORNER BROOK  Adam Canning was near flawless in the crease as Western moved into sole possession of third place with a sweep of Conception Bay South over the weekend.

Canning only allowed one goal as the Western boys swept the CBS representatives in a provincial Under-14 boys soccer league two-game showdown at Wellington Street Sports Complex.

The Western squad improved to 6-3-1 on the season after a 3-1 victory over CBS Sunday morning sealed the sweep.

Andrew Antle scored two goals and Brent Eason added an insurance marker to support Canning in Sunday’s win.

Chad Sinyard was the lone marksman for the CBS squad, beating Canning with a shot just four minutes into the first half at Wellington.

Eason scored his marker at 14 minutes to get the hometown squad even.

Antle’s goals were recorded at 32 and 78 minutes as the Western squad proved to be the better team on this weekend.

On Saturday, Canning posted a shutout as the Western side downed the visitors 4-0 on a sunny evening in Corner Brook.

Mike Morgan, a Stephenville native, scored two goals, including the winning goal at 16 minutes.

Andrew Burden, one of the leaders of the local squad, scored the other two goals, denting the mesh at both  22 and 78 minutes.

Western will be at home again this weekend with the Metro United Football Club (MUFC) providing the opposition. The two sides clash Saturday 5 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. at Wellington Street Sports Complex.
