A poor performance from a very below par Whitehawk side which lacked pride and passion saw them exit the Fa Cup to a well drilled and organised Sutton Utd.
Sutton started the game very well and played some lovely football in the first half in some difficult conditions at a windy Enclosed Ground on the south coast.
It took just three minutes for the U’s to open the scoring when the very impressive Dale Binns left two defenders in his wake and his square ball found Kane Haysman in plenty of time and space and he found the net easily beating Chris Winterton in the Hawks goal from 15 yards.
Tom Cadmore cleared a cross right in front of goal on twenty five minutes which would have been turned in by Sutton’s Jamie Slabber, and another clearance off the line this time from Hakeem Adelakun after a goal bound effort by Dean McDonald.
The second half was a more quieter affair as the wind picked up, Anthony Riviere shot just wide for the visitors with twenty minutes left.
Sam Gargan had the hosts best chance after seventy seven minutes but his header was straight at Tom Lovelock in the Sutton goal.
Winterton was called into action near the end when Sutton sub Dean Sinclair tried his luck from twenty yards.
Deep in injury time Danny Mills saw his header just float wide of the far post and nearly snatch a totally undeserved equaliser.
