The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - WEALDSTONE 2 WHITEHAWK 1 By Chris Woods

ABOBAKER EISA’S late win­ner gave Wealdstone a text­book smash-and­grab vic­tory over bot­tom of the league Whitehawk.

The Stones had to come from be­hind af­ter Kyjuon Marsh-Brown had opened the scor­ing for the Hawks in the first half but Wealdstone equalised through a Danny Green penalty and won it in the 88th minute when sub Eisa rounded keeper Si­mon Jor­gensen.

Whitehawk could have gone ahead twice be­fore Marsh-Brown’s opener with Jonathan North deny­ing Pape Gu­eye and Enoch An­doh from close range.

Marsh-Brown then gave the Hawks a de­served lead when he beat Glenn Wilson and curl­ing a low, swerv­ing ef­fort past North on 28 min­utes.

The first half in­tro­duc­tion of Eisa brought more en­ergy to the Stones at­tack and he tried to lob the 6’10” frame of Jor­gensen in goal, which the keeper just held on to.

Rose brought down Shaquille Hip­polyte Pa­trick in the sec­ond half for a con­tro­ver­sial penalty from which Green sent Jor­gensen the wrong way.

And late on the Stones sealed it. A poor kick from Jor­gensen was headed to Eisa. He beat his man and rounded the keeper to slot in to al­low the home fans to blow a big sigh of re­lief. STAR MAN: Abobaker Eisa (Wealdstone) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
