Buckham brace earns side share of the spoils

JEN BUCKHAM netted two goals as Henley secured a point from their home league match against Spencer Ladies on Saturday.

Soaking up intense pressure from the off Henley remained composed and good tackles from Kath Evans in defence kept the visitors at bay.

Midway through the first half Henley broke quickly and some smart play from forwards Hickman and Hedges provided Lyn an opportunity to win a short corner. With captain Herbert off the pitch Buckham stepped up to take the strike and scored with a deceptive spinning shot. The second half saw Spencer turn up the pressure and after 15 minutes an intense 10 minute period saw Henley concede two goals.

Henley hit back and five minutes from time another short corner was converted by Buckham to equalise.
