Hendon's 17 match unbeaten run came to an end this afternoon as they lost 2-0 at Bishop's Stortford. Both goals were scored by Glen Southam, the first coming in the 70th minute after confusion in defence between Mark Burgess and Dave King, and the second eight minutes later following some good skill from Southam. The goals came after a pulsating first half in which both sides created numerous chances. Hendon had a great chance to take the lead when a long clearance from King was lobbed on the volley towards goal by Eugene Ofori. The volley beat Stortford keeper Micky Desborough but hit the bar and bounced to safety. Desborough was in fine form in the first half making a string of quality saves, while the Stortford attack caused the Hendon defence a number of scares. The result means that the Greens need to win their last three games to confirm the runners up spot.
