Tiverton inflicted Hendon's third home league defeat of the season with a classic away performance as they left Silver Jubilee Park with a 3-2 win.

Joshua Jones opened the scoring for the visitors before a wonderful solo goal from Billy Leonard levelled things up. Poor defending then allowed former Hendon loanee Jack Rice to nip in and put Tivvy ahead on the stroke of half time.

Joe White was adjudged to have committed a red-card worthy foul six minutes after the break yet the 10 men continued to press and keep Tiverton penned in their own half. Rice added his second of the afternoon in stoppage time before Finlay MacNab grabbed a consolation as Hendon threatened another late late show.
