Wapping’s men and women celebrated hard-fought wins in their latest East League outings at the weekend.

The women travelled to Premier Division strugglers Sevenoaks, but despite the best efforts of keeper Kate Brannelly, fell behind inside 10 minutes.

The visitors soon settled and began playing some good passing hockey, using the width of the pitch and drawing level with a fine goal from Katelynn Roganowicz, who lifted the ball into the roof of the net.

Wapping lost their grip on the match in the second half, letting the hosts back into it, but the defence held firm to deny several attacks.

And with three minutes to go, Wapping claimed their winner as Roganowicz rounded the keeper and slotted in from close range, to give them a boost for their trip to West Herts on Saturday.

The men ventured to Suffolk to face Premier A rivals Ipswich, where pushback was delayed due to traffic trouble en route.

Matt Seddon and Jonny Madill worked hard in attack, along with Ben and Ollie Bull, and Warren D’Souza opened the scoring after some quick hands along the baseline.

A mistake by Tom Sibley gifted the home side an equaliser before the break, but Wapping regained the lead in the second half when Ben Bull found space in the D and rifled a shot into the far corner.

A slip by James Bowler led to a second Ipswich goal, to leave the match delicately poised, but Adam Fallis scrambled home from a corner to seal a 3-2 win for Wapping.

They remain top of the table and also visit their West Herts rivals this weekend.

Alain Trail, Sam Gilliat, Bobby Watson and Duncan Spiers netted as the seconds beat Blueharts 4-1, while James Mahon (2), Hamish Forbes and Tom Brownill struck as the thirds bet Wisbech Town by the same margin.

Santi Jaugzaulaur’s goal saw the fourths draw 1-1 with Harpenden, while Ian Harmon and Tom Hammond netted as the fifths drew 2-2 with Braintree.

There was a 4-1 win for the sixth team over Maldon, as Tim Alexander, Martin Manecy (2) and Dave Charlesworth found the target, and the sevenths beat Witham 3-1 with goals from Sam Peel, Hamza Ateeque and Ollie Freeman-Smith.

Two goales apiece from Miguel Mananes, Simon Glancy and Jonny Ellis helped the eights beat Clacton seconds 8-0, while Dylan Morgan’s hat-trick led the 11th team to a 6-0 success over Old Southendian fifths, as Sam Tomkinson (2) and Kwinten Van Nes also netted.

The ninths drew 0-0 with Colchester thirds, while the 10ths suffered the only loss, 3-0 to Havering thirds.
