Hendon's first half clinical edge proved the difference as they overwhelmed neighbours Wingate & Finchley in the first half of an entertaining FA Cup 2nd qualifying round tie at Silver Jubilee Park this afternoon.
Dave Diedhiou stooped to head the Greens ahead before Robbie Buchanan made it two goals in two games with a smart finish after being played through on goal.
Joe White's strike on the stroke of half-time made it 3-0 and gave the Greens a comfortable cushion to defend after the break.
Wingate pushed forward and worked their way back into the game after an hour through Dylan Kearney's penalty. Marcin Brzozowski was needed to make a brilliant save to maintain Hendon's two goal advantage as they made it through to the 3rd Qualifying Round for the first time since the 2018/19 season.
