Town remain top despite defeat
HENLEY TOWN remain top of Division 2 despite going down to a 2-1 defeat at MAIDENHEAD TOWN RESERVES last Saturday.
The game started evenly with neither team threatening the opposing goalkeepers for the first 20 minutes.
Maidenhead took the lead after 25 minutes when their striker managed to get a shot away from a tight angle with the ball just squeezing inside the right post.
Henley almost equalised straight away when a Jake Jones corner was met by Alex Walmsley whose header clipped the top of the crossbar.
Henley started the second half well with some neat football but couldn’t create a clear cut chance.
The hosts’ dominance paid off on 70 minutes when a Fred Kirby through ball found Harri Douglas on the left wing who cut inside the box and unleashed a shot that crashed in off the post for the equaliser. Maidenhead took the lead again soon after when the referee overturned an offside decision to award a goal.
