Hendon Halt The Hillians

Another wet and windy encounter at the Green Elephants Stadium, as Burgess Hill Town faced off against Hendon. Hendon took the lead on 11 minutes, as Niko Muir found the bottom corner with a neat finish. 10 minutes later, Jack Brivio pulled the Hillians levelled with a powerful strike, after being set up but the man in form Tighe. However, the visitors were awarded a penalty 5 minutes before the break, which puzzled some Hillians fans. Goalkeeper James Shaw saved the penalty, but Muir was there to follow up and get his second of the match. Muir was eager to get his hat trick, and that he did, as another calm finish meant that Hendon grabbed their third. Once more though, the Hillians hit back, through midfielder Jack Brivio. The midfielder scoring his second of the match, topping off a powerful performance. Ibrahim Diallo’s miraculous clearance kept the goal margin at one, and the Hillians pushed for an equaliser. The game was put to bed on 90 minutes as Josh Walker scored Hendon’s fourth. A miserable day, but a far from miserable game. The Hillians return to league action on Wednesday night, against another strong side in Leatherhead. Looking forward to seeing you all at Fetcham Grove!
