East London women's fifths face the camera


East London’s women suffered a 2-0 defeat against East League Division One South rivals Upminster at the weekend.

They created a number of chances in a strong display, but were unable to find a way past the home defence and were made to pay when Upminster took the lead.

The hosts doubled their advantage with a penalty flick to claim the points.

East London’s second team also suffered a loss, falling to a 5-1 home defeat against Sudbury.

They were 2-0 down inside the first 10 minutes and, although Rachel Millar did find the net with a fine effort, it proved to be in vain.

In a top-of-the-table clash, East London thirds emerged 3-1 victors at home to Basildon thirds.

The visitors went in front in the first half, but despite missing several chances East London finally got their just rewards in the second period.

Catherine Weber levelled matters, before goals from Rosie Wood and Stacey West saw them remain top with a solid win.

The fourths came from behind to secure a 4-2 win over Harlow seconds.

East London conceded after only two minutes but debutant Carly Nolan scored a scorcher from near the top of the D to level.

Harlow went back in front, before Camilla Marcus-Dew slotted a second equaliser.

Danni Burnett and Charlotte Burge held their own in defence to keep Harlow out and East London dominated for the rest of the game, with Tara Annison putting them in front before Marcus-Dew netted her second.

Katie Barr’s strike sealed a 3-2 win for the fifths over their Chelmsford rivals, who led 1-0 at the break.

Courtney O’Connor equalised midway through the second half but Chelmsford went in front once again and looked to be heading for the win until Robyn Braithwaite levelled with minutes to spare and Barr then struck a last-gasp winner.

The sixth team lost 1-0 to their Wapping counterparts, but the sevenths recorded a 12-0 demolition over Upminster sixths.

Catherine Kingdom netted a hat-trick, while further goals went to Lorna Crayston, Penny Newson, Katie Smart, Karen Cheung, Wendy Smith.

The eighths drew 3-3 with Upminster after being 3-1 up through Sheena Anand’s double and one for Emily Hobbs.
