On the ladies side

L1 won 3-2 v Cambridge  City. Goals from: Aisling McKeon, Lucia Corey, Jennifer Token Allen. Mom: Lucy Todd, Dod: Lucia Corry

Riding high off the back of their win last week against top of the league, Wapping Hockey Club’s Ladies 1s team were keen to secure another huge 3 points and make it five wins from five. With that top spot in reaching distance, there was undoubtedly a lot at stake.  

Despite the anticipation, the first 10 minutes saw a shaky start from Wapping who let in an early goal. However, after an initial wobble, the ladies soon settled into the game playing some smooth hockey which lead to a goal Lucia Corey, a second after a short corner, slotted in by  Aisling McKeon followed quickly by a third from Jennifer Allen as the first half drew to a close. 
The skilful Cambridge City came back fighting and under some pressure Wapping conceded another goal. The tension rose but Wapping kept their cool and controlled the game with some excellent build up play through our midfield and superstar  Player of the Match, Lucy Todd. Fighting until the final minutes, Wapping bagged their early sought after three points, wining the fifth match out of so many games. The team now on equal points with East London who drew last weekend with Cambridge University but remain second to them based on goal difference - it's all to play for. 


L2s won 2-1 away against Burnt Ash. Goals: Alice Gage and Alice Pavey. DOD: Charlotte Colquhoun for a yellow card. POM: Also Charlotte Colquhoun work rate and bossing it up front


L3's won 3-2 at home against Hertford 1s. Goal scorers were Barbara Lo Giudice X2 and Lauren Bould. PoM was Vicky for some amazing goal keeping. DoD was Babs for PF arrogance.

DOD - Chan Kumari-Webster for various reasons including finishing all her water before getting to the match and complaining about having wrinkles while being the baby of the group.


And on the men's side

Top of the table clash between Wapping  HC (top of the league, 7 wins out of 7) away at Cambridge City HC (second in the league, 2 losses). Wapping started well. They had circle penetrations in good areas, but couldn’t capitalise. Cambridge grew into the game toward the end of the 1st quarter and scored a goal on the break - the ball pulled back for Euan Gilmour to flick into an empty net. 1-0. Cambridge grew further in the second quarter as Wapping momentarily lost their discipline. Cambridge managed to score another as a hopeful aerial worked its way through to Gilmour who found himself one v one against Chris Monger, the Wapping GK. Gilmour rounded the Monger and scored with a reverse stick strike. 2-0. 

Wapping came out in the 2nd half with calm heads and a focus to get back into the game. They started the 3rd quarter well, gaining territory and having opportunities. One penalty corner was drag-flocked by captain Will Cairns. A good save and the ball rolled along the goal line. Then an attack done the left was pulled back from the base-line to Adam Fallis, whose low shot was saved, but the rebound fell to Ollie Bull who lifted into the roof of the net. 2-1. A period of sustained pressure from Wapping, in search of the equaliser, was punctuated by a series of green and yellow cards for both teams. Wapping has a goal disallowed as they continued applying the pressure. Then in the 68th minute, a City turnover in the midfield led to a fine move between Warren D’Souza and Drew Burkin, with D’Souza managing to slot the ball between the GK’s legs to level up. 2-2. There was still time for Wapping to have a chance to win the game, Ben Bull flashing a shot just wide, but Wapping were pleased to leave with a good point at a difficult place to go. Wapping’s unbeaten season continues, and they will look to try and get back to winning ways against Bedford at home on Sunday next week.
