Posted by Rachel Gaston on 3 March 2019

An exciting weekend of hockey; L6 beat Colne 7:0 to stay out of the relegation zone and both M1 and L1 won their matches! Full round up below. 


L1 won 3-2 against St Albans L2,  goals from Lou Song, Katelynn Roganowicz, Ness Sharman. POM and DOD: Kate Brannelly for turning up in St Albans gear

On the Saturday, 2 March, the Wapping Ladies 1s headed north to meet St Albans’ L2.  With just four games left to play, the Wapping side needed to secure all three points in order to stay in the hunt for promotion to the re-structured national league for the 2019/20 season.

St Albans started strong, pressing high and giving the Wapping backline very little time on the ball. Despite the intense pressure, the visitors retained possession well and, working through midfielders Aisling McKeon and Lithuanian international, Jurate Juodyte, Wapping had the better of the chances in the first half and their perseverance paid off 20 minutes into the first half with a passage of play that started deep in Wapping’s own half.  The ball was transferred across the back line to Sophie Tomkinson at right half and, after a series of two touch pass through the midfield, the ball was threaded through to Canadian international Katelynn Roganowicz on the right wing.  Roganowicz dragged the St Alban’s defence before slipping it through to an unmarked Lou Song on the back post. Song made no mistake and slotted home from close range to put Wapping ahead going in to the half time break.

St Albans’ were revitalised after the break and again started strongly, pressing high and hard and forcing Wapping into retreat.  St Albans well-organised defensive press paid dividends, dispossessing Wapping on the 23 yard line and launching relentless counter attacks.  Ten minutes into the second half, their persistence paid off, when the St Albans forward receive the ball at the top of the Wapping circle and launched a ferocious shot that evaded the Wapping keeper, Kate Brannelly.  Just minutes after the restart, St Albans forced their way into the Wapping circle once again.  The ball was passed from the left-hand side of the circle to an oncoming St Albans forward.  Wapping left back Chelsea Hodgson averted the attack but was deemed to have interfered with the St Albans player the umpires awarded a penalty stroke.  The penalty was deftly converted and St Albans took the lead.

The Wapping ladies responded admirably and chased an equaliser.  With just seven minutes left to play, a Wapping counter attack found Emily Wilford on the right wing.  She crossed cleanly across the circle to find the stick of an outstretched Katelynn Roganowicz who expertly deflected the ball past the advancing St Albans keeper.  The away side continued to attack and then, with just three minutes left, won a rare penalty corner.  The ball came to Aisling McKeon at the top of the circle who sent a disguised pass into the path of Ness Sharman who deflected the ball high into the net to put Wapping back in front with just minutes left on the clock. 

St Albans responded immediately, and won their own corner with a minute to play.  However the Wapping defence held firm until the final whistle.  A crucial three points that leave Wapping in contention for promotion.

And on the men's side...

Mens 1s won 2-0 at St Albans goals for Matt Seddon and Max Bowerman. POM, Jonny verity and James Bowler, DOD also to James Bowler

Wapping got off to a strong start, challenging the Alban’s defence and putting them under pressure. A neat run down the left created the first opportunity for Wapping, with Adam Fallis driving across the top of the D and hitting the ball hard towards the bottom left hand corner. An impressive save by the keeper denied Wapping a goal and the home side fought back. Some quick work in the midfield left Wapping exposed and Albans capitalised driving into the D for a one on one. James Bowler made the save, but the ball careered dangerously across the face of goal. Johnny Verity was there to clear it up, diving to reach the ball and clear the Wapping lines. With just two minutes to go in the first half, another fine run by Adam Fallis down the left gave Wapping the opportunity to take the lead, a pass across goal was slotted in by Chedden Senior to take Wapping 1-0 up.

Albans came out strong in the second half, breaking through the Wapping defence and peppering the keeper with attacks. A fine double save kept the attack at bay and Wapping responded in kind. Once again, it was Cheddon Senior that contributed to the breakthrough. His shot was saved by the keeper, but Max Bowerman was there to slot it in and give the away side some breathing space

Albans responded strongly and dominated much of the second half, but some excellent defending by Johnny Verity and what some on the sidelines described as a number of “breathtaking” saves by Goalkeeper James Bowler kept the home side at bay. A two-nil win for Wapping sees them retain their place at the top of the league. Despite a six-point lead, with two tough games left in the season, the men still have some work to do to secure that top spot.
