Hendon scored their first ever goals at Tiverton Town this afternoon to return from Devon with a superb 4-2 win over their hosts.

The Greens moved into the top half of the table with a brace from Niko Muir and first Hendon goals from Dan Matsuzaka and Billy Leonard.

Muir opened the scoring at the far post just past the half-hour mark before former Hendon loanee Jack Rice was credited with the equaliser ten minutes later to tie things up. Dan Matsuzaka restored Hendon's lead with a header before Muir added Hendon's third and his fifth of the campaign.

Tom Bath reduced the arrears with 4 minutes left before Billy Leonard tapped home in the 90th minute to seal a deserved, and very welcome three points on the road.
