Three minutes after the break it was 3-0. From another well-worked corner Chris Henderson weaved his way towards goal and curled his shot home.

At Flackwell Heath, the Yachtsmen's Paul Cook opened the scoring in the 10th minute but Flackwell Heath equalised on 15 minutes with an own goal from keeper Scott Howie.
