M1 v Havering (by Ryan D'Souza)

Top of the league Wapping men’s 1st travelled to Havering, who sat 8 points from safety at the bottom of the league, on Saturday, 13th February. Wapping were in confident mood on the back of six straight wins but knew that Havering would offer a very different challenge.


Essex based Havering are renowned for their robust competitive play, and have pulled off upsets against top teams this season. The primary focus of Wapping preparation for this fixture was on discipline and not allowing the game plan to be disrupted.


Wapping controlled the game throughout. However, due to some poor passing in the final third it wasn’t until fifteen minutes in that Dutchman, Michiel Marck, pounced on a rebound off the cross-bar to drill an upright reverse stick shot into the net. The floodgates then opened, Felix Styles drag flicked a quick fire brace to put Wapping 3-0 up before Phil Messent unleashed an unstoppable reverse stick shot into the rigging to provide the East Londoners with a comfortable 4-0 half time lead.


With result effectively confirmed, the priority for the second half was to put a lid on the game, preserving players for tough upcoming fixtures. This tactic may have fed the home side's frustration who picked up two yellow cards, whilst Wapping added two further goals vis Grant Aidoo-Nash and a second for Marck. A late consolation goal from a counter attack wasn't enough to derail Wapping's control and they add another 3 points to their title challenge.


After the game, Wapping coach, Ryan D’Souza commented “I’m pleased with the 3 points today and the discipline of my squad. Seven wins in a row shows excellent consistency in our performances but we will not allow ourselves to become complacent leading into the very tough final four games of the season".
