Herts/Middlesex League One: Wasps 24 Hendon 19
There was late heartbreak for Hendon as their depleted side lost out 24-19 in the last minute at Wasps FC.
The hosts scored an early pushover try to take a 5-0 lead, but scrum half JP Cremin found Chris Kiyingi to break the Wasps defence to score Hendon’s first try, which was converted by hooker Larry Moore.
Evan Powell crashed through to score and Moore converted again to move the visitors 14-5 ahead at the half-time interval.
Wasps produced a converted score after they caught the Hendon defence on the back foot, but the visitors soon responded.
Centre Toby Ikweuke scored a pushover try out wide as they moved 19-12 in front before the hosts levelled matters with a converted try.
But in the final minute, Wasps scored yet another pushover try, and Hendon had to settle for the bonus point in defeat.
Hendon entertain unbeaten league leaders Bank of England at Copthall on Saturday.
