David strikes it lucky

Anything can happen on penalties, but when you've got Russell Corin in goal you're on to a winner.

David Garbacz's Hendon team forged ahead twice at Wingate in the National final on Sunday, but we pegged back on both occasions, including a 119th minute equaliser.

Garbacz ensured they didn't let their heads drop, feel sorry for themselves or deflated. These Hendon boys are men on a mission and the treble is still on. But only after an almighty scare.

One down, two to go. It's back to the Harry Abrahams Stadium again for part two against NLR.
