Havering’s women made it three wins in a row in East League Two South East after a hat-trick from Emily Gilkes-Tarsey helped see off Bromley & Beckenham at Campion.

The hosts began well and saw Gilkes-Tarsey and Charlotte Chamberlin force saves from an excellent Bromley keeper.

A driving run by Emily Martin led to the first goal, as Katie Griggs saw her shot forced over the line by Gilkes-Tarsey.

A lapse in communication in Havering’s defence allowed an opposition forward to drive into the D and level from a narrow angle, but Emma Isherwood’s quick free hit found Griggs, whose shot was saved before Isherwood put away the rebound.

Haverings keeper Sophie McCoy made some good saves as the defence of Bukki Olodo, Wendy Schofield, Sam Cash and Nic Earle worked well to keep Bromley attacks to the minimum before the interval.

But although Havering started the second half strongly, their rivals equalised as a cross was tapped in at the far post.

Havering kept out several short corners before taking hold of the game again, with Chamberlin, Martin and Sue Harwood working hard in midfield to get the ball through to the forward line of Gilkes-Tarsey, Isherwood, Griggs and Rhiannon Goulden.

Gilkes-Tarsey pounced on a loose ball but the whistle went for a short corner, just before the ball crossed the line.

A mazy run by Harwood took her past several defenders to force a save before Gilkes-Tarsey tapped in the loose ball.

And Gilkes-Tarsey completed her treble when Chamberlin took a long corner to Isherwood, who crossed to her team-mate at the far post to score.

Isherwood added the fifth, taking a sideline pass and bouncing past several tackles before hitting a spectacular reverse hit inside the near post.

And although the visitors hit back from a short corner, despite an excellent initial tackle from Cash, there was no denying Havering a 5-3 win ahead of their derby at Brentwood on Saturday.

The seconds were 4-1 winners over Upminster thirds, with Stephanie Prowse scoring from Kirsty Watley’s pass for the first.

Gemma Mckenzie Cardy made it 2-0, before Upminster replied, and Kim Clarke made some key saves in the second half before Alex Semon and Maria Griffin struck further Havering goals.
