Weston-Super-Mare 1-2 Whitehawk
The Hawks moved closer to the playoff places on Saturday following a 2-1 win away to Weston-Super-Mare.
Danny Mills scored the first for The Hawks, with a well executed strike towards the top corner, which Home ‘keeper Luke Purnell was unable to reach. Mills then doubled the lead for The Hawks after being set up by a great assist from Nick Arnold following a brilliant run down the right wing.
Weston got a goal back in the 90th minute through Ionnis Varouxakis as he slotted past Craig Ross, though he appeared to be in an offside position.
However, The Hawks held on following a brilliant battling performance to hold back the Home side to close the gap on the playoffs to 6 points on 5th place and 7 points on 4th place.
