PUBLISHED: 11:30 11 October 2017
Wapping’s men picked up their first win of the East Premier A season with an emphatic 9-2 success over Ipswich.
The match was delayed by more than two hours due to an injury suffered by a visiting player during warm-up, but new signing Adam Fallis and a double from Jonny Madill got Wapping off to a flyer, only to be pegged back to 3-2.
Ollie Bull gave the home side a two-goal cushion at half-time, before captain Will Cairns netted a double and Madill completed his hat-trick, with Nick McLaren and Bobby Watson rounding it off.
Meanwhile, the women’s first team remain unbeaten in the East Premier after a hard-working 1-0 win over Canterbury.
Wapping couldn’t breakthrough a stubborn defence until 10 minutes before half time, despite some fine play throughout.
Kate O’Sullivan, Jordan Mulvaney and Katelynn Roganowicz all played their part with Mulvaney catching the ball on the reverse, side- stepping a defender and sending a reverse flick into the top of the net.
Sam Gilliat and Richard Ripper netted as the men’s seconds beat Havering 2-0, while the thirds drew 2-2 with Sudbury despite goals from Rory Twogood and Hamish Forbes.
The fourth team shared the spoils in a 10-goal thriller with Letchworth seconds thanks to a double from Max Duerkop and one each for James Lichtenstein, Jon Bloomfield and Matt Wilson.
Matt Patterson netted for the fifths in a 1-1 draw with Saffron Walden, while Martin Mancey (2), Bryn Ford Jones and Jack Dutton scored in a 4-2 sixth team win over Braintree.
Dave Charlesworth’s effort proved in vain as the sevenths lost 2-1 to Clacton, as was Henry Lewis’ double for the eighths in a 3-2 loss also against Clacton.
The ninths lost by the same scoreline to Crostyx despite goals from Jonny Ellis and Ollie Kean.
Natasha Close, Fran Sutton, Kate Silbermann, Jess Sturgeon and Lou Song helped the women’s seconds beat Harpenden 5-2.
Doubles from Jess Frith, Babs Lo Giudice and Issy Meere saw the thirds to a 6-1 victory against Braintree, while Hattie Gaunt and Sophie Halls netted in a 2-2 draw with Basildon.
The fifths lost 1-0 to County Wanderers, but the sixths won by that scoreline against East London thanks to Ali Scott.
Claire Durrans and Marieke Van Kleef netted as the sevenths lost 6-2 to Braintree.
