WHITE­HAWK 1 HARINGEY BOR­OUGH 3

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Adam Hart

HARINGEY Bor­ough gained a de­served three points at White­hawk, thanks to a Joel Nouble hat-trick that in­cluded two game-turn­ing penal­ties late in the first half.

The Hawks were awarded a penalty of their own af­ter eight min­utes as Lu­cas Ro­drigues was felled in the box.

James Fraser’s spot­kick was saved by Haringey ‘keeper Valery Pa­jetet, but Fraser fol­lowed up to head home the re­bound.

Fraser fired wide af­ter 16 min­utes. But, 12 min­utes later, Hawks keeper Melvin Min­ter kept The Hawks ahead with a fan­tas­tic dou­ble save to deny Nouble and Chinedu McKen­zie. Five min­utes from the break, Nouble was taken down in the box by Min­ter and equalised from the spot.

Then, on half-time, Michael O’Donoghue was taken down in the Hawks box and Nouble slot­ted home again.

The sec­ond half started as a qui­eter af­fair with barely any ac­tion of note tak­ing place.

And the vis­i­tors sealed vic­tory af­ter 66 min­utes when Nouble com­pleted his hat-trick.

White­hawk de­fender Harry Shooman hit a great late ef­fort.

But it was de­flected for a cor­ner that Haringey cleared to claim a de­served triumph on the south coast.

STAR MAN: Joel Nouble (Haringey Bor­ough) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
