Taylor at the double for United

HOSTS Henley YMCA United made it through to the last eight of the Industrial Cup on Sunday after a hard fought victory over Wokingham and Emmbrook at Lawson Road.

Wokingham made the most of the early running and after a stream of crosses, one deflected off the back of Jason Russell and looped into the YMCA goal.

After 20 minutes captain Matt Webb won possession in the middle of the park and after some neat interplay with George Chaplin, the ball found its way to Sam Taylor who rifled home into the bottom corner for the equaliser.

United took the lead when winger Chaplin picked the ball up on the right and beat his marker before cutting inside and firing into the very top left hand corner of the net.

Just before the interval Wokingham began to rally and when some sloppy Henley marking culminated in a defensive error, the visiting striker was afforded a clear run through the middle of the YMCA half to equalise.

Two minutes into the second half the Wokingham keeper spilled a long shot from the YMCA midfield and Taylor reacted quickest, nipping in to chip the rebound in over the keeper from an acute angle for his second goal of the game.

After a couple of enforced changes due to injuries, Henley began to absorb more pressure from a Wokingham side searching for an equaliser.

Still a threat on the break, Henley fashioned further chances for Chaplin and Jeremy Hughes.
