Essex Senior League: Tower Hamlets 2 Sporting Bengal United 3
Sporting Bengal United are now eight games unbeaten after securing a 3-2 win over local rivals Tower Hamlets to earn the borough bragging rights.
A brace from Jay Knight and another from Mario Embalo was enough to bag the three points for Bengal despite a late fightback from the hosts at the Mile End Stadium.
Knight opened the scoring in the match as he brought down a cross from Embalo and slotted it home in the early stages of the match.
Playmaker Embalo then turned goal scorer as headed a Steven Carvell corner into the net from the front post to make it 2-0.
