Another narrow defeat by Hungerford
Swindon Supermarine lost out to National League South side Hungerford Town in their latest pre-season friendly. Supermarine were beaten 2-1 at the Webbswood Stadium on Tuesday in what was their fourth pre-season clash.
The home side started brightly with both TJ Bohane and Josh Parsons forcing John Henley into low stops from long range. However the visitors began to grow into the game and took the lead on 28 minutes when Callum Wilmott burst into the Marine box and had his low cross turned into his own net by Zak Westlake.
Wilmott himself went close to adding a second shortly before the interval, stinging the returning Connor Johnsí hands from 30 yards. Just four minutes into the second period, Hungerford doubled their lead as Nick Bignall evaded Ryan Morganís challenge before firing past replacement stopper Josh Hill.
Supermarine then began to dominate proceedings, Bohane twice nodding just wide when trying to close the gap. The hosts then did get a deserved goal on 72 minutes, Parsons scoring with superb volley having been picked out by Jack Alexander. There was little goalmouth to follow, with Hungerford seeing out a narrow win
