Playing Matchpoints in the Allendale, NJ sectional Friday afternoon my partner and I encountered this one.

Std. Amer. 2/1GF, pretty much Bridge World Standard style.

I was surprised to find so many in game, scoring poorly in matchpoints for +170. (Heart lead, one spade loser, club ace onside).

 

Who one of us should have “taken the push” to game?  Please opine below.

 

West should have forced with Jacoby or other GF mechanism.
East should have accepted invite (Reduced loser count vs 5332?, 5 controls?, please clarify)
Not a good game, field overbid (at matchpoints).
Just unlucky, no fault
