Hendon back to winning ways

Hendon returned to winning ways this evening at Braintree Town, coming away victors 3-1 in a game delayed until 8.00pm due to traffic problems on the way to the game. In the 13th minute Braintree took the lead when a shot from Dean Parratt took a wicked deflection and flew into the net giving Dave King no chance. However, Hendon fought back and were rewarded on the stroke of half time when a short corner was crossed into the box by Scott Cousins and Eugene Ofori sent a fierce header into the net. The Greens came out fighting in the second half and took the lead in the 57th minute when a delicious cross from Iain Duncan was volleyed home by Ricci Crace. Four minutes later Ofori scored his second of the evening when he lifted the ball over the keeper after being sent clear by an excellent pass from Andy Cook. There were more chances for the lead to be further extended, but chances for Crace, Randall, Bates and Cousins didn't find the target. It was a much improved performance from the Greens, who will now go into their two week break with much more confidence.
