Lucy Dempsey and Menzies were both on target inside the first six minutes of the match, from a well-worked short corner routines and deflection, and defended well to key fourth-placed Blueharts at bay for the rest of the match.

Perdita Blinkhorn took the player of the match award for a string of incredible saves.

Alice Dolton, Rebecca Smart and Charlotte Butterfield were on target in the defeat.

The fifths drew 2-2 with Basildon thirds as Catlyn Adams and player of the match Katie Wardle netted, while the sixths romped to an 8-0 win over Basildon fourths.

Stephanie Poon hit a hat-trick, with Hannah McDermid and Sophie Williams scoring twice each and Ella Brown also on the scoresheet.

Jo Wilson and Poon shared the player of the match award.

The sevenths claimed an 8-0 win of their own over Old Loughts fifths, with Emilie O’Brien and Catherine Senior nabbing braces.

Melody Espada, Lucy Benson, Chloe Russell and Danae Lopez also got in on the act with a goal each.

The eighths beat Chelmsford sevenths 4-0, as player of the match Sarah Collister, Rachel Farmer, Elise Cant and Nardene Scott netted.

*East London’s men survived a late push from Bluehars to claim a 4-3 win East Premier B.
