East London’s men hit rivals Broxbourne for six in their East League encounter at Lee Valley.

Joe Green and Mark Prince converted crosses from Andy Cumine to put the hosts 2-0 up and Karl Khan finished off a fine move for the third.

Broxbourne grabbed a third goal, before Harry Finster finished off another pass from Cumine to seal a 6-3 win and keep East’s promotion hopes alive.

The thirds lost 3-1 to Southend, with Adam Tyrell netting their consolation, but the fourths beat Colchester by the odd goal in five as Ali Bell, Nick Short and Daniel Williams all found the net.

And the eighths beat Upminster fifths 4-1 thanks to braces from Zafar Butt and Muhammad Noman.

East London’s women got the better of Burnt Ash, as Karen Allan, Alice Hutson and Karen Heaney notched in a 3-2 success, with Stacey Nicholl named player of the match for her fantastic work rate.

And the seconds claimed a 3-1 win over Shefford & Sandy as captain Kate Hendry’s fine early goal set them on their way, with Rachel Millar and Lynsey Thompson sharing player of the match honours.

The thirds romped to a 10-0 win over County, as Stacey West scored four times and Victoria Harding added a hat-trick of her own.

Catherine Weber added two goals, with Libby Wright completing the tally.

But the fifths went one better as they beat Havering thirds 11-0, with Courtney O’Connor’s treble leading the way.

Robyn Braithwaite, Belinda Le Mesurier and Fiona Isacsson all scored braces, as Phoebe Darwin and Catlyn Adams added to the haul.
