HFC’s fight for Division 2 status will go to the last game of the season after a hard fought 1-1 draw against fifth placed St Johns. HFC scored early in the first half though Dave Jenkinson after he pressurised the St Johns keeper following a back pass. Although HFC had a few chances to make the game safe they had to ‘park the bus’ for a large part of the second half. St Johns finally secured a point scoring in the last five minutes with a 25 yard free kick into the top corner which gave Nick Garth no chance in the Hornets goal. HFC’s fate now rests with Malvern Victoria who play relegation rivals Inter Express and HFC in the next two weeks.
