Late goal sees Town denied

HENLEY TOWN went down to a 3-2 defeat away at PHOENIX OLD BOYS.

Henley started brightly and were denied early on by some good saves by the home goalkeeper. Despite the early Henley pressure it was Phoenix who took the lead when a free kick was whipped in and the unmarked Old Boys player headed home.

Henley levelled the scores when a Liam Painter free kick from 20 yards out found its way into the bottom right corner just before the break.

The visitors took the lead early in the second half when a Painter corner was headed in from Alex Harris White at the back post. Henley had a chance to make it 3-1 from the penalty spot but Painter’s well struck kick was met by a fine save from Phoenix goalkeeper. Dan Charlfont came close to extending Henley’s lead when his 30 yard shot rattled off the post. Phoenix made it 2-2 when a mishap allowed their striker to level the scores. In added time Phoenix scored the winning goal to secure all three points.
