Guernsey 1 Horsham 2
Hornets finish second as we finish league campaign with another win ahead of play-offs
Horsham were made to pay for some wasteful finishing when a late equaliser by Guernsey’s Carlos Canha prevented them from getting 2019 off to a winning start. Despite enjoying much of the possession, the Hornets were unable to find a way past Callum Stanton in the visitors’ goal and it was the islanders who went closest to finding a breakthrough when Canha hit a post in the first half. A defensive mix-up enabled Rob O’Toole to open the scoring, fourteen minutes from time, but Dom Di Paola’s side frustratingly failed to secure a second goal and were punished on eighty-nine minutes when Canha swooped to head home a cross from Will Fazackerley.
