Maldon & L B 0 East London 1
EAST LONDON'S ladies' first team picked up a vital win at title rivals Maldon & Little Baddow at the weekend.
The current league leaders made the trip to a side currently second in the Essex Women's Hockey League Division One.
East London started well, but couldn't make the breakthrough, although Martje Langerwerf came close on a number of occasions.
However, a long stoppage at half time due to a serious injury, broke the Londoners' impetus and Maldon fought back in the second half.
The visiting defence stood firm and an excellent goal from Georgie Manley was enough to claim all three points and a clear lead at the top of the table.

EAST LONDON'S men's team made tough work of earning the victory over a University of Essex side at Mile End.
The home side dominated possession in the first half, but spurned numerous chances and headed into the break with a slender 1-0 lead thanks to a close-range finish from Dan Hyden, after excellent work from James Cook.
The second half continued in the same fashion, but the University side began to create chances at the opposite end, converting with 20 minutes remaining to level.
East London continued to press and Cook found an opening, slipping the ball through and allowing Adam Willoughby to convert for his fourth goal in five games.
