Wapping’s men passed their latest East Premier A exam with a 3-0 victory over Cambridge University.

Buoyed by their point at Bedford, they controlled the early stages at Lee Valley and Ollie Bull forced the visiting keeper into a fine save on two minutes.

Wapping won their first short corner on 10 minutes, after some good skill from Adam Fallis to draw a foul in the D, and Will Cairns sent a low drag flick into the corner to open the scoring.

Two more corners forced good saves from the Cambridge keeper, but Wapping doubled their lead when Ben Bull pounced on a rebound just before the interval.

Composed defending by the hosts kept the students at bay after the restart, although the visitors went close to a reply 10 minutes from time, when Bowler produced a superb stick save to deflect the ball wide.

Wapping sealed the points with a third goal late on when a superb cross from Nat Crawley found Bull in the D to deflect home.

The men took a small and inexperienced squad to Norwich for the East Indoor League event and achieved their objective of maintaining their place in the top division.

A win over Chelmsford and a draw with pre-tournament favourites Cambridge City was enough to keep Wapping up, despite defeats at the end of both days as their squad tired.

Captain Ollie Davies, newcomer Adam Cope and goalkeeper Chris Monger impressed for Wapping.

Tom Hammond’s hat-trick helped the men’s fifths to a 4-3 win over Chelmsford seconds, with Ali Parks also on the mark.

The sevenths beat Southend seconds for 6-3, with a double from Rory Cameron, while the ninths defeated Waltham Forest fourths 7-1, as Will Daniels and Tom Griffiths struck twice each.

Lotta Paulus netted as Wapping’s women took a point from a 1-1 draw with West Herts.

Paulus deflected a strike from Aisling McKeon into the net, on her way to the player of the match award, but West Herts levelled from a short corner.

Katelynn Roganowicz, Kate O’Sullivan, Jordan Mulvaney, Zara Reid and Vanessa Sharman searched in vain for a winner for Wapping, who visit Old Loughts tonight (Wednesday, 8pm).

The seconds beat Saffron Walden 4-1, as Rachel Haslehoff struck twice, and Barbara Lo Giudice hit a hat-trick as the thirds beat Colchester 6-0.
