The opening goal came from a Scriven delivery from the right that was almost impossible to defend as forward Harriet Plows rushed in to head home.
Hampton headed in a corner at the back post to level the score on the stroke of half-time.
And that equaliser galvanised the hosts, who emerged in the second period with a stronger shape and more attacking thrust.
They took the lead shortly after the restart when a swirling cross deceived keeper Sophia Axelsson and flew straight into the net.
And it took a moment of magic on 75 minutes to get Clapton CFC on even terms again as midfielder Zhane Amoaten curled a shot into the top corner.
