Latest from Wapping Hockey Club who had plenty of success last weekend

Wapping’s women’s first team kept up their strong start to the season with a 3-0 victory over a youthful Old Loughtonians second team.

Kate Radford, Louise Song and Belinda Armstrong were on target, but it wasn’t all plain sailing.

Wapping started their East Division One South clash well and Radford and Jo Ward created a number of early opportunities.

But none were taken and it remained goalless at the break.

This failed to deter the home side, however, and they remained patient and composed after half time and eventually took the lead through Radford.

An excellent right slip ball from a short corner gave her the chance to cleanly strike the ball and she made no mistake.

Wapping went from strength to strength afterwards and Song pounced on a loose ball to make it 2-0, before Armstrong finished off an excellent move to conclude the scoring for the home side.

Their fifth consecutive win takes them four points clear at the top, but the men’s first team tasted defeat to Bedford firsts in a thriller.

Michiel Marck and Felix Styles were on target, but Wapping were edged out 4-2 in their East Premier A encounter at home.

The seconds smashed March Town firsts 6-1 with Ed Fry helping himself to a brace.

Matt Hyden also scored alongside Ollie Bull, Ben Gallagher and Charley Wright.

A Ross Townsley goal earned the thirds a draw with Bedford seconds, but Alex Riddick’s strike was only a consolation for the fours in their 2-1 reverse to Clacton ones.

The fifths triumphed 5-1 over Southend twos, while the sixth team edged out Upminster thirds in a five-goal thriller.

Five goals were also scored in the sevens match with Upminster fourths and fortunately all of them went to Wapping, but Old Loughts Academy won 3-2 against the eighth team. The nines, however, smashed Witham fives 6-0.

The women’s second team had a memorable afternoon as Barbara lo Giudice and Jordan Mulvaney both scored four times during their 12-0 win over Thurrock firsts.

Emily Ballinger, Alice Grace, Jade Edwards and Kate Silbermann were also on target.

Liv Ceriro netted twice for the thirds as they beat their Chelmsford counterparts 2-1, but the fourths lost 2-0 to Maldon ones.

The fifth team downed Colchester thirds 3-1 and the sixths smashed Brentwood fives 11-0.

Witham threes were defeated 4-1 by the sevens, but the eights gave Chelmsford Academy a walkover.
