Back to winning ways

In Division 2 league leaders HENLEY TOWN got back to winning ways as they defeated HURST RESERVES 4-1 at the Triangle Ground.

Henley started the game on the front foot and were gifted an early goal when the Hurst goalkeeper failed to clear a back pass which led to a calamitous own goal.

The hosts continued to dominate the opening 20 minutes and soon scored a second goal when Jake Jones played a 40-yard pass to Jack Woodley on the wing who crossed into the box for Charlie Douglas to smartly finish.

Hurst managed to get a foothold in the game and started playing some good football they managed to pull a goal back just before half-time making the score 2-1.

The second half started off evenly with both teams passing the ball well but not creating chances.

Fred Kirby came on as substitute for the hosts and within five minutes found himself on the scoresheet thanks to Alberto Gingell for winning a free kick on the edge of the box and Jake Jones for supplying the set piece that he volleyed home from close range.

Henley grabbed a fourth goal thanks to a good solo effort from Arran Finch who beat a couple of defenders outside of the box and supplied a right footed finish into the bottom corner.

Henley were in complete control and managed to keep the score at 4-1 thanks to a couple of good saves from George Allen at the end of the game.
