HAMBLEDEN’S Wycombe and District League Senior Division title hopes took a knock on Saturday as they went down 4-2 to fellow contenders Stokenchurch at the Dene.
The visitors took the lead from a corner before Adam North equalised. A minute later poor defending allowed the visitors to retake the lead.
With the hosts searching for an equaliser, spaces allowed the Stokenchurch midfiled to dominate as they pressed forward and scored twice more to take a 4-1 half-time lead.
Hambleden put pressure on Stokenchurch in the second half and with 25 minutes remaining North fired home a Brown cross to reduce the arrears.
Hambleden: Ross Hathaway, Ozzy Dawson, James Rodrigues, Chris Brunning, Duane Brian, Adam North, Staurt Macllenan, Mike Wilkins, Ashley Dixon, Dean Kemp, Matt Cook. Subs: Simon Hathaway, Lewis Brown, Tom Colby.
