Dynamo bounced back from their heavy opening game defeat with a Wharfedale Triangle Premier Division victory which was earned with a spirited performance.
The teams had met previously in a League Cup Tie last September and the hosts had then emerged 4-3 victors. The Dynamo squad were determined to avenge that result Dynamo began well with some neat and tidy possession. Tom Higman who led the line in style, was soon rewarded with a goal after 15 minutes when his his powerful strike put Dynamo 1-0 ahead.
A number of opportunities were wasted as Dynamo pushed forward.
The hosts battled hard and soon pulled a goal back through Declan Corby to make it 1-1. Dynamo though, gradually maintained a territorial dominance with Craig Bentham, who was making his debut for Dynamo, helping to create a number of clear cut chances.
However, it was left to central defender Sam Jacomb, who gave another strong performance, who put Dynamo back in front at 2-1 with a fine headed goal.
The visitors then failed to capitalise despite further pressure but could not create another breakthrough.
On the hour, Callum Isherman brought the hosts level again at 2-2 after a close-range effort and the match then became a stalemate.
Honours remained even until late in the game when a determined Dynamo team broke the deadlock as their concerted push for victory was rewarded.
Danny Henderson pounced with a crucial late strike to make it 3-2 to ensure Dynamo collected their first points of the season.
This was without doubt the result of a solid and very determined team effort and gives Dynamo plenty of encouragement.
