Hill tops for strug­gling We­ston

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Kevin An­der­son

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.
