ARLESEY Town's recent run of good form continued on Tuesday night when they beat Waltham Abbey 2-1 at home.
Arlesey went in front after 12 minutes when a great shot on the run by Paul Bloss was frantically cleared by the Abbey defence.
Kaan Femhi picked up the ball on the right and he raced in to drill it into the far corner of the net.
Michael McKenzie then went close with a blistering shot but put Arlesey in front on 24 minutes sprinting past two defenders to fire the ball in at the far post.
In the second half, Abbey went searching for goals and were rewarded in the 60th minute when Mark Sontag fired in an unstoppable shot from 25 yards to reduce the arrears.
