URCHINS CRUISE TO EASY VICTORY
AFC HORN 3 WALTHAM A 0
HORNCHURCH survived an early scare before cruising to victory over Waltham Abbey.
Leon McKenzie twice went close in the first half and was denied twice more by James Pellin.
Two goals early in the second half overcame Abbey’s resistance, as firstly Alex Bentley played a long ball to McKenzie who played it out to the right wing to Abs Thompson and Ross Wall stroked home the resulting cross.
Thirty seconds later Junior Luke played the ball through to McKenzie who ran forward and stroked the ball home.
Pellin in the visiting goal made a series of fine saves but was beaten a third time when Wall played the ball back to Jed Chouman who slotted in.
