Synthonia took the three points at a windswept Nissan Sports Comlex with a 3-1 win, all the goals coming in the first half.
Billingham were quick out the blocks and opened the scoring in the 3rd minute when debutant Cameron Wilson played a ball into the box from the left to CONNOR SMITH who found the bottom right corner of the net. Washington were soon level though when in the 7th minute Chris Pattinson played the ball across goal from the left and DYLAN QUINN netted from cloase range.
Synners scored twice in quick succession to take a two goal lead as firstly a 26th minute ball from the left from Louis Johnson across goal came to TOM BLIGH at the back post who squeezed the ball home between keeper and post. Less than a minute later and LOUIS JOHNSON received the ball in the box and shot home to make it three.
Half-time: Washington 1, Synners 3
After the restart and Johnson forced Washington keeper Nathan Armin into a good block as he went in on goal. Billingham were then awarded a penalty following a foul on Smith, but Ben Pollock saw Armin dive the right way and save his spot-kick. The last real chance of the game saw a Johnson free-kick which dipped over Armin, but hit the cross-bar.
