Hop­per on hand to down Tu­dors

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Al­lan Mitchell

HUNGER­FORD came from be­hind to stun Hemel and take three points home.

The home side had the ma­jor­ity of chances in the first half and could have gone in front as early as the third minute when David Moyo and Scott Shul­ton had shots blocked.

Hunger­ford could have taken the lead on the half hour mark when a loose pass was in­ter­cepted and Ni­cholas Big­nall raced clear but Tu­dors stand in keeper Danny Boness did well to close him down and saved well.

Hemel scored early in the sec­ond half when a Jor­dan Parkes corner curled straight in, Mar­cus Beauchamp com­pletely miss­ing his at­tempted punch.

It was another goal­keep­ing er­ror that let Hunger­ford back into the game when Boness de­cided to come for a ball that wasn’t his and Big­nall headed into an empty net.

Not long af­ter it was 2-1 when Diak John ar­rived un­marked at the far post to set up Luke Hop­per who made no mis­take to stun the home fans.

Hemel had their chances to get back into the game but in the end the vis­i­tors held on for a sur­prise win.

STAR MAN: Ni­cholas Big­nall (Hunger­ford) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
