Wapping’s women remain on the heels of East League Premier Division leaders Ipswich after a 3-0 win over Maidstone at a chilly Lee Valley.

The hosts began well, stringing passes together as Emma Evans and Aisling McKeon dominated the middle of the park.

And great build-up play between Hannah Gage, Bee Armstrong and Becky Hart gave Katelynn Roganowicz the chance to drive into the D and set up Ness Sharman for a clinical finish to open the scoring.

Maidstone rallied to keep the home side at bay for the rest of the first half, although McKeon almost found a superb run to the near post by Zara Reid.

Wapping began the second half on top, with Lottie Colquhoun and Ciara Murphy producing some impressive stick handling, as Dannie Jones and Gage controlled the back line.

Goalkeeper Mooch Perkins had to be alert to produce a key save at her near post to deny the visitors a reply, after a loose ball found its way through Wapping’s defence.

But it was soon 2-0 after a beautiful pass from Lotta Paulus found McKeon at the top of the D to fire a quick strike into the net.

Armstrong picked out both Roganowicz and Jordan Mulvaney to challenge the keeper before Perkins produced another impressive save and Mulvaney cleared a follow-up off the line.

Wapping completed their tally late on when Hart and Murphy worked an overlap on the left and Roganowicz converted.

Wapping remain two points behind Ipswich ahead of a trip to West Herts this weekend.

The men snatched a late point against in-form Bedford in East Premier B, with Will Cairns netting both goals in a 2-2 draw, as Dave McLean took the man of the match award.

Cairns saw a short corner blocked on the line after good work by Ollie Bull, before the hosts countered to beat James Bowler and open the scoring.

Bedford scrambled a second against the run of play and the visitors had claims for a penalty flick waved away before half time.

Wapping continued to apply pressure in the second half, with a flurry of green and yellow cards shown by the umpires, and gave themselves hope eight minutes from time when Cairns converted a well-worked corner routine.

And they grabbed a share of the spoils from the last play of the game as Cairns struck again.

Adam Cope’s brace led the seconds to a 6-3 win over Cambridge University, while Rory Twogood struck twice as the thirds beat Upminster 3-0.

Tom Scrase and Sam Uden both hit doubles as the 11ths beat Crostyx fourths 5-0.

The women’s seconds beat West Herts by the same margin as Rachel Haselhoff hit two goals, with Ruth Tilsley, Jess Sturgeon and Charltote Holt also on target.

Babs Lo Giudice, Jeff Frith, Holly Marven and Bella Heber led the thirds to a 4-0 win over Upminster seconds and Lucy Taylor netted twice as the fifths drew 2-2 with Havering seconds.
