Hartley Wintney suffered a heavy defeat against league leaders Weston Super Mare.

The Seagulls remain perched at the top of the league after their comfortable 4-0 win over luckless Hartley Wintney.

Weston started strongly and after 13 minutes went ahead. A free kick on the left edge of the Row area saw Dayle Grubb curl the ball around the wall and it found the corner of the net. (1-0) 

The Seagulls doubled the lead on 33 minutes. A cross from Jordan Bastin was not fully cleared by the Row and James Dodd fired home a shot from 25 yards. (2-0)

Two minutes before the break the Seagulls pecked their way to a third goal. A ball played into the Hartley area saw the eagle-eyed referee spot a tug on a home player and awarded a penalty kick. Grubb stepped up and converted the penalty. (3-0)

Weston continued in the ascendancy in the second period. Grubb, who was still hungry for another goal, completed his hat-trick on 68 minutes. He fashioned a chance for himself from distance and a parting shot from around 25 yards found the corner of the net. (4-0)

During the second period Row keeper Damian Niemczycki pulled off several good stops.

The Row rallied towards the end in search of a consolation goal but were unable to create a meaningful chance.
