HENLEY TOWN earned themselves another three points on their travels on Tuesday night with a fine 3-1 away win to Chalfont Wasps at Amersham Town’s ground.
Two first-half goals from David Stevens and one for Warren Baxter were enough to keep the Red Kites in the running for the Hellenic Division 1 East title.
Chalfont took the lead on five minutes when Hide capitalised on a failed clearance from the Henley defence but a Baxter header four minutes later put the visitors level.
Stevens then netted a brace before the game even entered the half hour mark. The first was a right wing cross from Jonathan Malone that found Stevens on the edge of the box and his precision-met shot nestled into the bottom right-hand corner leaving the goalkeeper stranded.
On 25 minutes Jack Thomson-Wheeler stole the ball off a Chalfont defender in his own box and his cut back low cross allowed Stevens to score his second from close range.
Following the restart, Henley could and should have extended their lead but they were unable to convert their near-constant pressure on the Chalfont goal into any meaningful chances. Chalfont finished strong but they, too, were unable to score.
