Hill goes so close to grab­bing a late win­ner for We­ston

Bristol Post - - SPORT -

WE­STON, de­spite be­ing 1-0 down at half-time, looked a dif­fer­ent side in the sec­ond half and were re­warded for their ef­forts with a late equaliser.

East­bourne opened the scor­ing when Char­lie Walker passed to Joel Rollinson, and his cross into the cen­tre landed per­fectly for East­bourne skip­per Kane Wills, who guided his shot into the cor­ner of Luke Pur­nell’s net.

Pur­nell made an ex­cel­lent save just be­fore half-time when Joe Quigley’s header from six yards was tipped over by Pur­nell. At the other end, Mar­lon Jack­son fired a shot into the arms of Sam Howes after driv­ing for­ward from half­way.

Tom Har­ri­son’s toe-poke from a Ge­orge Nurse free-kick was blocked in front of the home net, while Pur­nell saved Dean Cox’s shot from 18 yards at the other end.

Lloyd Dawes fired over when wellplaced in­side the box fol­low­ing Quigley’s pass, and Eli Phipps couldn’t get the ball out his feet quickly enough from Nurse’s clipped cross, with the Welsh­man’s shot blocked by Tom Gard­ner.

We­ston equalised when Phipps turned and got a shot away on the edge of the area. Howes pushed it away but fol­low­ing in was Gethyn Hill, and he tapped into the un­guarded net.

In the last ad­di­tional minute of the game, a loose ball fell to Hill. He un­leashed a rocket, which smacked off the post from 30 yards and bounced away to safety.
