WYMONDHAM travelled to face Corton, looking to beat their hosts at the third attempt this season.
Corton are very much in the promotion frame and enjoyed the majority of the possession in the first half. Despite this pressure they never tested Hodges in the Town goal.
The first half was most notable for some excellent defending from Hill who used his pace on a number of occasions to clear any trouble.
The only threat offered by Town came from a Rackham shot which drew a fine save from the home keeper.

Garwood made his views clear at half-time and, in fairness, the team responded and largely controlled the second half.
The breakthrough came from an unusual source, with Stuart Felgate scoring with excellent header into the far corner of the net.

This was the catalyst Town needed and they started to play some better football with Williamson and McCloy looking dangerous down the wings.
The developing strike partnership of Rackham and Pipe were getting more of the ball and looked a threat.
Unfortunately for Town Corton equalised with a deflected shot which wrong-footed keeper Hodges.
Subs were made with Ramsbottom going off for Cracknell and Pike making way for Williamson. Both made excellent contributions, with Cracknell showing his passing skills and Pike looking dangerous on the right wing.
At this point the game could have gone either way but a telling moment came when McCloy made an excellent clearance to stop a certain Corton goal.
The Town winner came from the back. Wells made an excellent interception at the back. He released the ball to Pike who ran with the ball. Pike spotted Rackham in space who found the corner of the net with a sublime finish.
Town held out relatively comfortably winners and after being outplayed and outfought in a disappointing first half, they more than made amends in the second.
Man of the match: Hill, another exceptional performance at the back.
