CONCORD cruised to victory over visiting high flyers Whitehawk at the Aspect Arena.
Steve Cawley struck either side of half time to see Rangers to a deserved win as the Hawks offered little to trouble the home defence.
The hosts should have taken an early lead through Joe Gardner who sprung the offside trap but saw his low shot well saved by goalkeeper Craig Ross.
Ross soon went from hero to villain as he called for a loose ball which
allowed Cawley to ghost in between him and the hesitant Tom Cadmore to nip the ball past the pair of them into the empty net.
Concord continued to offer a serious threat but failed to add to the score
on five notable occasions for the remainder of the first half.
Whitehawk’s expected rally in the second half did not come and Concord crafted opportunities before Sam Collins notched their second when another calamitous call from Ross let him tap home at the back post.
The game was put to bed in emphatic fashion with a fast passing move
culminating in Cawley curing a powerful effort inside the right hand post.
Late substitute Tony Stokes should have made it four in the closing stages but saw his low strike cleared off the line by Cadmore.
