Henley secure win despite poor conditions
HENLEY TOWN recorded their second Premier Division win of the season as they defeated CAVERSHAM AFC 5-1 at their Triangle Ground.
The home side started well and were on top 10 minutes into the game when they were rewarded with a goal after 15 minutes when Jack Earl scored from 25 yards after being set up by Dan York.
Henley remained in control for the rest of the first half with goalkeeper Charlie York called into action twice to ensure the slender lead remained intact at half time.
Conditions worsened as the rain started to pour down in the second half but Henley carried on playing good football and made it 2-0 when Charlie Douglas headed home from six yards after a good cross from Rowan Stacey.
Henley made it 3-0 when Stacey played in Dan York who found the net with a clever lob from outside the box.
The home side continued to dominate the game and netted their fourth goal when Dan York played in Hugh Barklem who beat a defender and calmly slotted the ball home.
Henley conceded on the 70 minute mark when a Caversham shot rebounded off the post and their striker tapped the ball in from three yards out.
Stacey completed his hat-trick of assists when he set up Daniel Chalfont who finished well from inside the box to complete the score line and lift Henley into third place in the league
