Weston returned from Dartford empty-handed after being defeated 3-1 by the hosts.
A weakened Weston squad travelled to Dartford and came away empty-handed from their clash at Princes Park.
The home side started strongly and striker Andy Pugh saw his shot deflected for a corner, which came to nothing.
The Darts took the lead in the seventh minute when the broke from a Weston corner and Alfie Pavey was able to beat Luke Purnell in the Weston goal.
Purnell was in action soon after when he saved well from Duane Ofari-Acheampong. Dartford doubled their lead when skipper Elliot Bradbrook volleyed home on the half-hour.
The home side were again denied by Purnell when he produced a stunning full-length save.
After the break, Jake Lee and Tom Bonner were involved in a tussle on and off the ball, before Pavey netted his second 13 minutes from time.
Tom Llewellyn, who came on to replace Ash Kington, found the back of the net on his first league appearance for the Seagulls to get a consolation for the visitors with just minutes remaining.
