Hendon Under-16s completed a magnificent double over promotion-chasing Harlington with a 6-0 victory at Copthall Playing Fields on Sunday morning. They took the lead after 17 minutes when a shot from Billy Williams was deflected into the net. Two minutes later, Zola Msimanga tried his luck with a shot. It was saved by the goalkeeper, but Msimanga knocked home the rebound. The best goal of the game came eight minutes before half-time when Junior Abass struck a stunning 25-yard drive that beat the goalkeeper all ends up.
Five minutes into the second half, Hendon got their fourth goal. A free-kick from Abass was touched home by Shaquille Tyndale-Weekes. Unfortunately for Harlington, their goalkeeper suffered a head injury colliding with the goal-scorer and had to leave the game.
Midway through the second half, a short corner was played to the edge of the box, Sharif Malik shot towards goal and skipper Bobby Kasabi diverted it into the net. And, with 15 minutes remaining, Abass ran through on goal. His shot was saved by the stand-in goalkeeper, but it was followed up by substitute Liam Hyland, normally the first-choice goalkeeper, but an emergency striker off the bench, and he slid home the rebound.
"It was a fantastic performance and absolutely thoroughly deserved," was the comment of delighted manager Paul McGreal. "Considering that Harlington were second in the league and could have won promotion today, it does show what talent we have in the side. We have completed the double over them and, with today's result and last week's too, I hope it means we will be more consistent towards the end of the season. My man of the match was Junior Abass. He played superbly in midfield."
