Hill tops for struggling Weston
GETHYN HILL’S late equaliser gave bottom club Weston a hard-earned point in Sussex.
It was certainly the cliched game of two halves as the hosts controlled large parts of the first half, while Weston dominated secondhalf possession.
Ryan Hall and Joe Quigley fired off target early on before the breakthrough came after 18 minutes; Joel Rollinson’s right-wing cross picking out Kane Wills who finished smartly from 10 yards.
Wills almost netted again after half an hour when his 25-yard pile-driver was tipped around the post by Weston keeper Luke Purnell.
And just before half-time, Purcell brilliantly saved Quigley’s effort from Charlie Walker’s cross.
Only a last-ditch block from Sports’ Tom Gardiner denied Weston’s Eli Phipps on the hour.
And Weston levelled on 83 minutes when diving Borough glovesman Sam Howes saved Phipps’ low drive and sub Hill poked in the loose ball from close range.
Both teams could have won in a frantic finale. Borough thought they should have had a penalty when Andrew Briggs was bundled over before Hill’s 25-yard strike hit the post.
