Easington Sports 1, Henley Town 0
LAST Saturday’s game was a frustrating one for Henley Town who suffered a 1-0 defeat against Banbury-based Easington Sports in their Uhlsport Hellenic League Division 1 East encounter.
In an even match, the visitors got off to a strong start and took hold of the game at a face pace for the first 20 minutes.
However, it was the hosts that took the lead in the 31st minute with a goal by striker Steve Howkins that beat Graham Sims in the Henley goal. Play then became evenly matched up until half-time.
Henley began the second half strongly but the home side marked them tightly and the visitors couldn’t find the room they needed to score an equaliser.
