Essex Open were left frustrated after their Premiership game with Hertford Hornets was called off due to bad weather.

But they remain top of Essex Met League Division One after Marshalls were unable to field a team on Saturday.

Essex Open B continue to struggle in the same division, though, after a 70-33 loss to New Cambell Green.

A heavy defeat looked most unlikely in a very competitive first quarter which saw Essex trail 10-8, after leading 3-0.

But a pattern soon emerged with New Cambell creating lots of chances and Essex finding it difficult to break down their defence.

Essex fell apart in the second quarter as misplaced passes and an inability to break down the Cambell defence saw them outscored 24-6 to trail 34-14 at half time.

It was a similar story in the third quarter as Cambell totally dominated to lead 54-19 but Essex showed some late resistance to win the final period 17-16.

Essex Open: Glenn, Stanley, N Wilks, K Wilks, Biss, Tynan, Livingstone, Mia-Burke.

*Essex Open C suffered their first loss of the season as they went down 35-30 against Leyton B.

In a tight game they were made to pay for not scoring enough goals to put any sort of pressure on Leyton.

Jess Fray, Leah May and Kate Wilks held their own in mid-court early on to keep Essex on terms at 6-6, before Leyton scored three quick goals.

Excellent shooting by Terri Mia-Burke got Essex level at 10-10, but Leyton were one goal up at half time and the gap grew to 26-232 after the third quarter.

Leyton stretched their lead to seven, before three goals towards the end saw pull closer, albeit in vain.

Essex Open: Towe, Tynan. Fray, K Wilks, May, Mia-Burke, Mortimer, Sheehy, Boyce.

*Essex Open D also suffered defeat as they went down 46-30 to New Cambell Silver in Division Four, but the F team top Division Eight after New Cambell Yellow failed to field a team.

Essex Open E are second after beating Marshalls 50-10, but the G team lost 35-25 to Sapphire C and the H team forfeitted to Sapphire D.
