An eventful game! Overall a deserved victory but not without its controversial moments. McLaren's tackle was fairly worthy of a red card, as was the Lewes bloke's for hurling the ball against a Hendon player's head. The Lewes centre forward was lucky to stay on the pitch for an earlier elbow in Braithwaite's face before Lewes got what looked a softish pen for a shirt pull. Both teams and both benches needed to calm down at half time.
The 2nd half was largely dominated by Hendon and it was clear that the Lewes keeper was carrying a knock as he made a very half hearted attempt to come out to Ibe, who squeezed the ball in at the near post. Cue the sub keeper but he hadn't been on for too long before Casey McClaren weaved past one defender and lashed home a shot high at the near post. The game became stretched and Tony Taggart produced a superb weaving run before unselfishly setting up Percil for a shot that the keeper blocked. Despite a few late corners, Hendon hung on well against a fairly poor and argumentative Lewes team.
Lots of good performances, with special mentions to Ibe, Taggart, Casey McClaren, Goode and Braithwaite.
