Hemel level af­ter early shock

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - HEMEL HEMP­STEAD T 1 WE­STON-SU­PER-MARE 1 By Al­lan Mitchell

DAYLE GRUBB’S great free­kick for We­ston was not enough for the win.

Char­lie Sher­ing­ham had the game’s first op­por­tu­nity af­ter great work by Justin Amalu­zor down the left. Amalu­zor drilled the ball across and Sher­ing­ham got his shot away but it flew just wide.

We­ston took the lead af­ter 20 min­utes as Dayle Grubb drilled his free kick into the top cor­ner, leav­ing Lau­rie Walker with no chance.

This prompted Hemel into a de­cent re­sponse and Sher­ing­ham did well to cre­ate some space but his shot was blocked by Luke Pur­nell in We­ston’s goal.

It was only a short-lived re­prieve though as Hemel equalised just be­fore the half-hour mark when Jor­dan Parkes sent Amalu­zor clear and he chipped Pur­nell.

Up to the in­ter­val, the vis­i­tors looked very dan­ger­ous and with the ex­cel­lent Grubb run­ning the mid­field.

Walker saved su­perbly just be­fore the break from Archie Collins, who looked set to score as he ar­rived at the back post.

In the sec­ond half the game never re­ally got go­ing, the best chances fall­ing to Sher­ing­ham, who back heeled just wide and Gethyn Hill headed over.

The game fiz­zled out and both sides set­tled for a point.

STAR MAN: Dayle Grubb (We­ston) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
