The only goal of the game came after 4 minutes when debutant Tom Bligh played a great defence splitting pass to CONNOR SMITH on the left who found the far corner of the net with his shot.
Billingham had chances to extend their lead in a bright opening from the hosts, but had to settle for the one-goal lead going in at the break.
Half-time: Synners 1, Washington 0
An even second period saw Synners keeper Callum Roberts preserve the lead as he denied Jak Hanson. Synthonia were reduced to ten men after Nico Weatherald was shown a straight red in the 80th minute.
The man advantage gave Washington the impetus in the closing stages and they pressed for an equaliser; the Synners defence though, stood firm.
