Hill lev­eller for Seag­ulls

Western Daily Press - - Football -

GETHYN Hill struck a late lev­eller and al­most snatched a last-gasp win­ner as We­ston-su­per-Mare picked up an im­por­tant point at East­bourne Bor­ough in Na­tional League South.

East­bourne opened the scor­ing when Char­lie Walker fed Joel Rollinson, and his cross into the cen­tre landed per­fectly on the right foot of Bor­ough skip­per Kane Wills, and he guided his shot into the cor­ner of Luke Pur­nell’s net.

Walker fired over from out­side the area, while Jen­ni­son MyrieWil­liams volleyed wide after Tom Gard­ner had cut out an Eli Phipps cross for We­ston.

Phipps also volleyed wide after Alex Byrne’s cor­ner had been headed clear to him.

Pur­nell made an ex­cel­lent save just be­fore half-time, while Mar­lon Jack­son then shot into the arms of Sam Howes after driv­ing for­ward from half­way.

Lloyd Dawes fired over when well-placed in­side the box, and Phipps could not get the ball out his feet quickly enough from Ge­orge Nurse’s clipped cross, the Welsh­man’s shot blocked.

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

And in the last ad­di­tional minute of the game, a loose ball fell to Hill. The striker’s first touch set the shot up, and he un­leashed a rocket, which smacked off the post from 30 yards and bounced away to safety.

De­spite the point, We­ston are still three points adrift at the foot of the ta­ble – and seven points away from safety.
