Late equaliser denies Henley
HENLEY TOWN 2-2 HURST RESERVES.
The game started slowly as both teams tried adjusting to the windy conditions. After 10 minutes Hurst were given a golden chance to take the lead when they were awarded a penalty but debutant goalkeeper James Aston pulled off a good save to deny the hosts.
Minutes later Hurst took the lead when a pass back to the Henley goalkeeper hit a bobble as Aston was about to clear the ball away, allowing a Hurst striker with a simple tap in. Henley got level just before the break when Dan Chalfont flicked the ball over a Hurst defender and finished well just inside the box. Henley took the lead on the 80th minute when good work on the left wing saw Jacob Kasaska cross the ball for Nathan Horder who chested the ball down and finished with a well placed volley inside the box.
Henley were denied the three points with the last play of the game as Hurst headed home from a corner.
