Corby Town’s FA Cup hopes were ended as Ryman League Premier Division side Hendon secured a 2-1 win at Steel Park.
Skipper Jason Crowe returned to the starting line-up while there was no place for winger Ryan Semple.
And it was Corby who made the brighter start with Josh Moreman having a cross tipped over by Berkley Laurencin before the striker put the Steelmen in front.
A lovely move ended with Tom McGowan floating a cross over from the left of the area, Avelino Vieira’s header was saved by Laurencin but Moreman reacted the quickest fire into the roof of the net.
Corby continued to have the better of things after that with Moreman seeing shot deflected wide while a series of corners saw both Carl Piergianni and Stefan Galinski having headers scrambled clear.
But the hosts didn’t take advantage of those openings and Hendon, who were neat and tidy in possession, made them pay before half-time.
A good passing move led to Greg Ngoyi finding space in the area and he held off the challenge of Piergianni before beating Paul Walker with a fine finish.
Leon McKenzie had a header ruled out for offside before the break but after it the game was scrappy with neither side able to take a firm grip on proceedings.
And while that was the case, Hendon seemed the more comfortable and they stunned Steel Park by taking the lead just past the hour with a perfect training ground routine.
A corner was sent over and Michael Murray found himself unmarked on the edge of the area and he made no mistake with a superb finish into the corner.
From there, the emphasis should have been on the Steelmen trying to find an equaliser but they struggled, they struggled a lot.
Hendon defended solidly and aside from a Sam Ives header that went over, the hosts failed to create a clear-cut chance.
Frustration boiled over at the death as both Piergianni and Elliott Charles saw red for an ugly clash.
But it was Hendon who finished celebrating and, in the end, it was hard to argue.
