The White Horse keeper pulled of another decent save and the resulting corner taken by Josh Breeze, saw the ball fall to Ollie Blower, his well-directed header found George Paola in space to head the ball into the net.
High Easter took the lead when the busy Emilio Caceres Sola sent a good pass to Jake Sutton to fire home to make it 1-2. Free kick specialist for High Easter, Andy Reed tested keeper Adam Clarke with a great shot, but he saved well. High Easter took a 3-1 lead just before half time when Josh Breeze found George Paola and with a good run across goal,turned and shot past Adam Clarke into the net.
The second half started with White Horse getting a penalty awarded to them, but keeper Lewis Jones just watched the ball flash past the post with the player firing wide.
