Lewis late show sends Li­ons tum­bling to de­feat

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY DANNY CARO


FOOT­BALL ZACK Lewis’s last-minute win­ner en­abled Hen­don United to pre­serve their lead at the top af­ter com­ing through a five-goal thriller against Li­ons at Row­ley Lane.

Lewis put Hen­don in front with the only goal of a first-half short on qual­ity. Li­ons had dom­i­nated pos­ses­sion but they were de­nied by an out­stand­ing piece of de­fend­ing from Zac Gar­bacz who was at full-stretch to clear off the line.

Li­ons equalised through Michael Ken­ley but Hen­don re­stored their ad­van­tage with Chaim Kor­man add- ing the fin­ish­ing touch to a coun­ter­at­tack.

The hosts felt they had done enough to earn a point af­ter a far-post fin­ish from Adam Arnold but a mo­ment of magic from Lewis, who cap­i­talised on great work from Gav Noe, en­sured Hen­don main­tained their seven-point ad­van­tage over Oak­wood.

Li­ons joint-man­ager Max Kyte said: “It was an­other great game but we are par­tic­u­larly sore about the re­sult given our per­for­mance.

“All the boys worked hard and the game was very even on bal­ance. We just about had the bet­ter of Hen­don in the first half, but the roles were re­versed in the sec­ond.

“The game could have gone ei­ther way with some great chances for both sides.”
