West Brom Vs. West Ham: Demba Ba Completes Brace, Hammers Comeback

Moments after West Bom had brought on a fifth defender, intent to bleed out the last minutes of their match with West Ham, the Hammers count an equalizer. In play built from a corner to the right of goal, West Ham eventually sent a cross to the left of the area for Demba Ba, already on the scoresheet. An athletic move from the recently acquired striker saw the Senegal international whip his right leg into a volley, driving it into the ground and up, into Boaz Myhill's goal. After 83 minutes, it was 3-3 at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies, in their first match after firing Roberto di Matteo last weekend, went into half time up 3-0, a scoreline that failed to reflect how much better West Brom had been than West Ham. Ba's goal early in the second has dictated the tone for this period, with Carlton Cole's goal bringing West Ham within one.

Now, the Hammers have found all the way back, and with the match currently in the 88th minute, the Hammers have plenty of time to complete their trick. But even if the score stays like this, West Ham has done extremely well to get back to 3-3.
