Sawbridgeworth nabbed one back to make it 3-2, but it was Embalo who put the nail in the coffin to seal his side’s third victory of the season.
Fellow Essex Senior League outfit Ilford fell short and suffered a close 2-1 defeat to league favourites FC Romania.
The Foxes took an early lead through Khadean Campbell who slotted home a header off a corner in the early stages of the game.
FC Romania equalised as they converted with a penalty and eventually went on to nick the winner.
