Hooper scores as Norwich beats West Brom 2-0 in Premier League
BIRMINGHAM, England - Gary Hooper scored his fifth goal of the season to help Norwich beat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 in the Premier League on Saturday and distance the club from the relegation zone.
Hooper put the visitors ahead in the 13th minute with a low shot past goalkeeper Boaz Myhill after being set up by Leroy Fer. Norwich then withstood sustained pressure by West Brom in the second half before Fer secured the victory by scoring on a counter attack in the 89th.
It was only Norwich's second away win of the season and came on the heels of a 5-1 drubbing by Liverpool on Wednesday. Norwich now has 17 points from 15 games and is four points away from the relegation zone.
West Brom has 15 points.
