Half-time: Synners 0, Washington 0
The only goal of the game came in the 62nd minute from WILF DINSDALE who was named captain in the absence of injured skipper John Seaton; some good work on the left saw the ball played to Dinsdale who played a one-two with Travers and rifled home the return ball.
Synthonia were denied a second goal by an offside decision as Jordan Jewson was flagged as he fired home after Ash Woodier saw a shot charged down. The last ten minutes of the game saw Washington put the pressure on, but Synners held firm to claim the three points.
