7 April 2018. Dartford 3, Weston Super Mare 1. (A BROWN 3', E BRADBROOK 29', A PAVEY 77') (T LLEWELLYN 90').
Dartford kept pace with leaders Havant in National League South with a comfortable home win over Weston-super-Mare on Saturday. Goals from Alex Brown, captain Elliot Bradbrook and leading scorer Alfie Pavey wrapped up the points. It means Darts trail leaders Havant, who edged to victory at Welling, by three points with one game in hand.
Referee Lee Brennan let a couple of feisty midfield challenges go, although Noble's late trip with 14 minutes left sparked a melee among players from both sides.
It seemed to spark Darts into life, or distract Weston's defence, as within a minute the hosts wrapped the points up when Pavey rounded keeper Purnell to slot into an empty net. Darts keeper Berti Schotterl produced a fine one-handed save to tip over Weston substitute Mohammad Baghdadi's long-range effort but he was denied a clean sheet in the first minute of stoppage time when Tom Llewellyn fired in from distance.
