Finishing lets down Hendon

t was another good performance from Hendon this evening as they drew 1-1 with Northwood at Claremont Road. The only blemish on the performance was the finishing in front of goal. Hendon took the lead in the 14th minute when a Northwood defender was ruled to have pulled on Steve Butler's shirt in the penalty area, and the referee pointed to the spot. Martin Randall stepped up to convert the spot kick. Just eight minutes later the scores were level when Dave Sargent converted another penalty after Iain Duncan had hauled down Chris Moore in the box. Hendon had the best of the play for the rest of the game, and the best of the chances, but either their finishing let them down, or they found Northwood keeper Rob Bullivant in fine form between the sticks. Bullivant made two excellent saves in the first half from deflected shots that most keepers wouldn't have got to.
