Wapping Scores 22 September 2019

Posted by Rachel Gaston on 24 September 2019

L1s won 1-0 win away at Norwich.

For their first match of the 2019-2020 season, Wapping L1 travelled to Norwich on the hunt for three points. The travelling side started slowly, struggling to adapt to the springy Norwich city pitch. The home team looked more comfortable on the ball, stringing together a few passes in the Wapping defensive third. Aisling McKeon and Siobhan Stewart worked hard to dominate in the midfield, settling Wapping into the game. Kate O’Sullivan looked lively up front for the maroons, but Wapping struggled to threaten the City goalmouth; the match remained goalless at the half time whistle. After a firm half time team talk from the Wapping coach, the maroons came out searching for a goal, holding the ball in their attacking half and putting City under sustained pressure. Some lovely attacking play down the right hand side from Lucia Corry led to Katelynn Roganowicz picking up the ball and driving the base line. Roganowicz spotted the City keeper off her line and neatly flicked the ball into the back of the net. 1-0 Wapping. Wapping dominated for the rest of the half winning a number of short corners but failing to convert the opportunities. Kate O’Sullivan pounced on a loose ball to score the second Wapping goal, but unfortunately the umpire disallowed her effort. In the final few moments Kate Brannelly kept the away side in front by smothering an energetic effort on goal from City. A bit of a shaky start from Wapping, but three points secured regardless. Ais McKeon and Kate O’Sullivan shared man of the match.

L2s lost 4-1 at home to Sevenoaks 2s: POM, Hannah Thompson, Alice Gage, Ellie Carr and Ruth Tilsley, DOD: Ellie Carr being vicious, leaving her bank card in the shirt bag! Green card for Alice Gage. Goal scorer: Ruth Tilsley.

L3s won 2-1 against Saffron Walden 2's: Goal scorers are Ruadhan Jenkins and Hannah Mason. POM, Hannah for scoring in her first game for Wapping and playing as a forward rather than her normal RB position. DOD - Pasc (unfairly) for being too injured to play

L3 220919

Ladies 4 lost 2-1 to Cambridge South: A cracking effort in the tropical heat with no subs. Goal from Laura Riveri. POM Ellie Brooke DOD Laura Riveri for wearing leggings when everyone else was wearing sun cream

L5 won 7-1 against Braintree: A Great team game. Aline scored three goals, and one each for, Bez, Winky, Lucy and Jane on her debut for wapping.POM for Winky for amazing runs and DOD for Katy for passing to the centre forward. 

L6s won 4-0 against Waltham Forest 3s: Three goals for Annie Waugh on her Wapping debut and one for Vicki Bennon. A great win with just 11 players and fantastic debut for Heidi Trumper from Wapping Kidds on her 16th birthday. 

L7 lost against Braintree: 10 player Wapping went 2-0 up against an oppo that featured a few players doubling down from this morning’s game against our L5. Great saves from Mimi Ly kept the girls in it, and POM Jess Bartlett and Lianne Castle bossed midfield & defence, but eventually heat and lack of players took their toll and a three goal second half from the oppo meant we left proud but without points. DOD was me for not going to A&E yet and Victoria Steele for nearly running out of petrol on the way there.

Goals Caroline Dale (2), the first a snaffled follow up after an outrageous reverse flick from Gigi Barbuto drew an excellent save, and second a similar piece of follow up on the keeper after a strike from captain Christina Cassidy.

L8s lost 2-1 against Chelmsford:Sole goal from Ali Scott. POM, Manuela for an excellent first game since she was 7, DOD - Anya for forgetting her name two times during the round of names (because she was thinking of all the admin she now has to do as captain and whether she’d done it. 


And on the men's side.

M1 - no match

M2 won 1-0 against Derehem after a 7.30am departure: Jonny Mad Dog Madill on the scoresheet with a short corner after the final whistle. Relief.

M4 lost 4-3 to Harpenden M1: POM, Craig Tuaine for a debut hat-trick. DOD,  shared between Craig (making everybody look bad) and Daz (airshot, not enough spins)

M5 drew 1-1 with Colchester 1s: Mighty Wapping M5's split the spoils with Colchester 1s on their 2S debut.  MOM was taken by Adam Haines for a heroic performance as the  midfield general. Stongly contested DOD went to James Bowler for chat to  the umpires despite keeping us in the game. Goal from Ian Harman. Special mention to Richard Musto, Ryan D'Souza and Mark Dungey adding a wealth of experience and pace at the back!

M6 lost 2-0 away against Old Loughts 3s: POM James Hylands debut performance that was top drawer, playing out of position, DOD Jack Harrington (also on debut) for going to JO instead of Old Loughts pre game. 

M7 lost 9-0 to Crostyx 2

M8s won 4-1 against Saffron Walden4: Goals from Simon Glancy and Miguel (3), POM, Miguel for the hat trick, DOD, Robin (Burnside would have stopped that goal) and Miguel not scoring for M6 but getting a hatty for M8

M9 drew 0-0 with Upminster 4: POM to Sam Tomkinson for continuing his good pre-season form and DOD shared between Alex Newman, Andy Gill and Matt Wheeler for watching cricket instead of playing

MX, won 3-0 against East London 8.

POM, Calum Nourish - great game, everything but the goals. DOD, Andy Taylor.

The X-Men were keen to deliver a strategic display particularly, Akash Marsh, on his adult league debut. A nervy first half saw East come close, but their forward, Magneto’s ball was predictably attracted to the post. A fine save on the line from Martin White kept us in it, before Dylan Morgan scrambled the ball over the line after a rogueish counter-attack.

East fought hard to get back in the game but were left marvelling at the defensive techniques on display from Josh van Haaren and Paddy Tuohy, most of which involved using the stick. As the seconds ran out on the first half, Nick Griffiths cleared his throat and announced himself with a fine strike from the top of the D. Some tactical adjustment in the second half led to a much more convincing display. Alan Dorji stole an East ball round the back and buried it to take us to 3-0. Despite that being the only goal, the second half was consistently stronger, dispite a disaterous injury at the end of the game.

MX 220919

M11 lost 5-2 to Old Loughts M6: POM Duncan for a great debut performance. DOD- Karndeep for unnecessary friendly fire
