Ebac Northern League Division 1
Hebburn Town 3-1 Seaham Red Star
Dibb-Fuller 58 Hailes 60
Jack Robson starred for Hebburn Town as they beat Seaham Red Star 3-1 on Tuesday night at the Energy Check Sports Ground.
Ben Dibb-Fuller put the Hornets in front early in the second half before Joseph Hailes equalised for the Star.
Goals from Robson and Lewis Suddick followed to secure the victory.
There were little chances in the opening 20 minutes until Graeme Armstrong came close for the Hornets in the 21st minute but his shot was blocked by the keeper one-on-one.
Nine minutes later, Hebburn’s Suddick had a close range header saved and shortly after, Michael Richardson’s effort went just wide.
13 minutes into the second half, the hosts took the lead when Suddick played through Robson, whose shot hit the post, and then Dibb-Fuller was at hand to net the rebound.
Their lead only lasted two minutes however, as a long throw was poorly defended by the Hebburn defence and Paul Weldon squared it to Hailes who beat Jennison close range to the right.
Moments later, Dan Wilson had a shot saved from close range for the visitors.
In the 69th minute, Suddick’s long range effort went just wide of the mark.
Hebburn regained their lead three minutes later when Richardson played in Robson who cut in from the left and smashed the ball into the top-right corner.
In the 81st minute, Richardson was involved again this time playing through Gary Shaw whose close range shot was pushed wide.
The Hornets put the game to bed three minutes later when Suddick buried the ball into the bottom-left corner after a good ball from the left.
The result sees Hebburn move up to fifth in the Northern League Division 1 table.
