Gethyn is the king of the Hill
GETHYN HILL’S first half injury-time finish was enough for Weston to beat winless Whitehawk.
The Seagulls enjoyed much of the possession in the early stages against the bottom side but struggled to test goalkeeper Seny Dieng, with Dayle Grubb and Tristan Plummer both going close in the first 20 minutes.
Dangerous striker Hill gave Weston a well-deserved lead in first half stoppage time when he latched onto a loose ball and poked it home.
Despite some confusion from the linesman over whether the ball had crossed the line, the goal was eventually given.
The Hawks came out after the break with intensity but it wasn’t long until the Gulls’ dominance resumed.
There was a moment where Whitehawk looked like they might go close, but former Millwall and Bristol City forward Marvin Elliott could only fire over the bar.
Hill was at the heart of everything good Weston were doing and on 65 minutes he was tripped in the box to hand them a penalty.
But there was more controversy when Grubb stepped up to take the spot kick, slipping as he found the back of the net.
The referee ruled the Weston captain had touched the ball twice and awarded a goal kick. STAR MAN: Gethyn Hill (Weston) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
