Despite putting in an excellent hard working, battling performance, Hendon were unable to find a way through an experienced Boreham Wood defence and went down to a 1-0 defeat at a warm Meadow Park on Saturday afternoon.
Boreham Wood started the brighter, and the only goal of the game came as early as the 9th minute, when Sherwin Stanley latched on to a ball over the top and he slotted the ball past Berkley Laurencin.
On an excellent surface, both sides were able to play an attractive passing game, and both Glenn Garner and Jamie Busby saw efforts from 20 yards fly narrowly wide of the goal. At the other end, Laurencin dealt with everything that was thrown at him comfortably.
The second half saw the usual raft of substitutions, but the introduction of Aaron Morgan for the Greens caused numerous problems for the experienced home defence which was well marshalled by Ryan Kirby.
Morgan was involved in much of the attacking play, and at times forced the defenders and goalkeeper into hurried clearances. He had a couple of chances to score, but was denied by the experience of Boreham Wood's back line.
Eddie Munnely cleared one home strike off the line, but otherwise James Reading was left to just deal with routine catches of crosses and shots.
Despite the lack of goals in the past three games, the Greens have put in a string of encouraging performances, with three weeks still to go until the season starts in earnest at Tooting & Mitcham United.
