Wapping’s women ran out 5-1 winners at Harleston Magpies seconds in their latest East League Premier Division outing on Saturday.

They took the lead with only 20 seconds gone after a superb team move that saw Jordan Mulvaney, Aisling McKeon, Sophie Tomkinson and Kate O’Sullivan combine to set up captain Ciara Murphy.

But Magpies rallied to win several short corners, with number one runner Katelynn Roganowicz working hard to foil their attempts.

A change of routine led to an equaliser before the break, but Wapping coach Matt Bowen’s half-time team talk worked wonders.

Chelsea Hodgson sent Emily Wilford through to tee up Mulvaney and when her shot was saved, Roganowicz was on hand to touch home.

McKeon and Natasha Wright worked well in midfield, with O’Sullivan’s excellent run setting up Wilford to make it 3-1.

Both sides received cards as discipline dropped, but player of the match McKeon fired home a fourth Wapping goal from a short corner and Roganowicz tapped in from Murphy’s reverse to complete the tally.

Wapping go in search of a third successive win when they host St Albans seconds this weekend.

The seconds beat Waltham Forest 5-0 with goals from Ruth Tilsley, Zara Reid, Nat Stewart, Emma Skinner and Jess Firth, while the thirds romped to an 11-0 success over Witham.

Babs Lo Guidice led the way with a hat-trick, as Pascaline Dubois, player of the match Bella Heber and Louise Dudley bagged braces and Issy Beere and Sandra Akinbolu completed the haul.

The fourth team edged past Maldon 2-1 as Lana Modeby and Ella Van Den Brink found the target, while the sixth team beat Redbridge & Ilford seconds 2-0 with goals from player of the match Krystle Stewart and Sarah Guggiari-Peel.

Bea Dyer’s goal earned the seventh team a 1-1 draw with Maldon seconds, but the fifths were edged out by 2-1 by Old Southendian, with Lucy Taylor getting their goal.

Tali Osen’s treble proved in vain as the eighth team fell to a 9-3 defeat against Upminster sixths, with Anya Alenshko the player of the match.
