HOLYPORT (2) 3 HENLEY TOWN (0) 0
The Red Kites travelled to Holyport on a wet and windy Tuesday evening for their 4th away match in the first five Hellenic League Division One East fixtures. Henley put on a spirited performance which belied their league position and they didn’t deserve to return home 3-0 losers.
The hosts took the lead in the 20th minute when they cleared from a Henley corner and broke away for Paul Rake to slot the ball past a helpless Mariah Cosman in the Town goal. Holyport went further ahead 2 minutes later when Charlie Evans diverted a right wing cross into the Henley net. The game was then end to end and fairly even with both sides having chances. The home side went further ahead in the 58th minute when Samuel Whitfield found space at the far post to head home a left wing corner.
Henley still kept battling away and Fraser Mowat and had a shot from distance well saved by the Holyport Keeper. Chris Hood was fouled on the edge of the area and he got up to take the free kick which the keeper dived to palm round the post. The referee sent Henley midfielder Loridon Daka of for retaliation in the 86th minute. Daka finally lost his temper after being harassed by the opposition throughout the match.
Despite another loss Manager Jock Mowat feels the general performance was good and the players he is bringing in are improving the side.
