Wapping Hockey men’s first team made it three wins on the spin with a 4-0 victory over Blueharts at Lee Valley on Saturday.

Adam Fallis chalked up his third goal in as many games to put them in front and they doubled their lead in the 15th minute when Ollie Davies deflected home from close range.

Grant Aidoo-Nash slid home Ollie Bull’s pin-point reverse stick cross to secure a third for Wapping, before rounding out the scoring with his second of the match.

Meanwhile, Lucy Todd’s double helped the woemn’s first team to a 2-1 win over Cambridge City.

They broke the deadlock as Lotta Paulus delivered a ball into the D, which Todd picked up in front of the keeper and casually slipped the ball on the reverse into the goal.

Then from a short corner, Kate O’Sullivan slipped the ball for the deflection, which was followed through by Todd and went into the back of the net.
