‘Wood’ continued their dominance and widened their advantage with a third, when Steve O’Connor calmly finished Matt Roles’ cross to claim his brace.
It looked like ‘Wood’ were going to enter the interval with a 3 goal advantage, but Berkhamstead clawed a goal back just before half time from the penalty spot, when defender Billy Goggin was deemed to be holding a Berkhamstead player inside the box.
