The confidence gained from a comeback 2-2 draw against Bedford last week stood Wapping in good stead as they beat Cambridge University 3-0.

The hosts controlled the game from the outset and Cambridge struggled to deal with their opponents use of the ball an movement.

It took only two minutes fro Wapping to create their first chance of the afternoon when Ollie Bull broke through and forced a fine save from the Cambridge keeper.

Wapping’s pressure told with 10 minutes on the clock as a fine piece of individual skill saw Adam Fallis win a penalty corner.

Will Cairns has been unerringly accurate from such situations this season and once again showed his class with a flicked finish to score against his former club.

Cambridge looked to get back into the game as soon as possible, but their high press was regularly found wanting and Wapping repeatedly broke through.

Wapping were making good use of their possession to boot and won a strong of penalty corners, the first two of which drew smart saves from the Cambridge keeper.

It proved to be third time the charm for Wapping as Ben Bull reacted quickest to a rebound and forced home his first goal of the season.

The goal gave Wapping a two-goal advantage which they were good value for at the half-time break.

Cambridge came out with renewed impetus after the restart and won two penalty corners early in the second period.

Wapping’s defence stood firm, though, and repelled both attempts to ensure their two-goal lead remained intact.

With their opponents pushing hard to find a route back into the game, Wapping inevitably found more space to exploit.

And they did just that to put the game beyond doubt with five minutes left to play when Nat Crawley found Bull in space in the D.

Still running high on confidence after his first half effort, Bull applied a routine deflection to make it 3-0 and complete the scoring.

Elsewhere, the Seconds were made to settle for a point from their clash with West Herts Seconds as they played out a 2-2 draw.

They owed much of their success to a man of the match display from Joe Trickett.

Richard Ripper and Max Duerkop were on target for Wapping in the clash.

The Ladies Firsts were also only able to force a stalemate from their game with West Herts Firsts.

Lotta Paulus was the undoubted star for Wapping and she put in a player of the match display. and also scored the goal.
