Hemel level after early shock
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.
