Holzer’s lob secures win to help side climb table

HENLEY TOWN moved up to fourth place in Division 1 after beating visitors PHOENIX OLD BOYS 2-1 at the Triangle Ground.

The hosts started the game brightly and after just two minutes Jacob Kasaska went through the visiting defence but saw his shot go narrowly wide of the post.

On five minutes Daniel Chalfont shot over the bar before the visitors started to get back into the game.

Henley then broke away on a counter-attack as Kasaska played a through ball to Chalfont who beat the goalkeeper to but the home side ahead. On the stroke of half-time the visitors levelled when they scored direct from a corner. In the second half Henley made a couple of substitutes bringing on Nick Holzer and Liam Painter.

These two played combined on the hour mark as a Painter through ball found Holzer who lobbed the Phoenix goalkeeper from the edge of the box.

Henley dominated possession but late in the game the visitors went close to levelling the scores but were denied by a good save by Shawn Batten Vickers in the Henley goal.
