Emma Isherwood netted two second-half penalty flicks as Havering opened the East Two South East season with a derby win at Campion School.

Isherwood struck from the spot either side of a close-range Katie Griggs effort and it was no more than the hosts deserved after creating the majority of the chances against a game Redbridge side, who claimed a deserved consolation through hard-working captain Jennifer Pearce.

Havering’s Alice Hopkin had the first chance of note and was denied by a sliding pad save from Lisa Lorey, who also kicked away a Steph Prowse penalty corner.

Pearce produced the first of many strong runs at the other end to create an opening for Erika De Graaf, but she could not get her shot away as Havering cleared the danger.

Emily Martin made a great run on the Havering left and thudded a shot into Lorey’s pads before Catherine Semon saw her hit towards the far post just elude Griggs.

Pearce then won Redbridge’s first corner of the match late in the first half, but the move broke down and Martin countered for the hosts, only for Semon to spurn the chance as it remained goalless.

Havering made a strong start to the second half, as the rain continued to fall, and captain Sue Harwood had a far-post effort saved by Lorey, before Martin’s run and cross from the right went to waste as Emily Gilkes-Tarsey failed to connect with a first-time attempt.

Isherwood and Martin had shots blocked at a Havering corner, before Harwood and Isherwood combined at another set-piece and Tess Meehan was denied by the foot of Helen Paddon on the far post.

Isherwood stepped up to convert the flick and break the deadlock, but Redbridge rallied through De Graaf’s strong run as Pearce shot just wide, before Marissa Beer was denied by the onrushing Sophie McCoy.

Lorey thwarted Harwood at another Havering corner, before the home side doubled their advantage when Semon’s shot on the turn fell kindly for Griggs to convert at the far post.

And it was 3-0 soon after when Paddon was hit on the knee as she defended another corner and Isherwood repeated her trick from the spot, placing the ball in the same corner of Lorey’s net.

Gilkes-Tarsey was denied in the D by a stick tackle from Katie Rivers and Redbridge broke upfield from the resulting corner, with Bronwen Woods and Heidi Rapley moving the ball on to Pearce, who saw her shot saved by McCoy.

Havering should have had a fourth when Harwood made a strong run to the byline on the right and pulled the ball back to the far post, but Griggs somehow managed to knock it over the crossbar from close range.

Redbridge hit back moments later when another surge by Harwood was ended by a fine tackle from Woods, before Zoe Meads and De Graaf moved the ball on to Pearce on the left wing and she beat McCoy with a well-struck drive.

There could have been more Havering goals in the closing stages, though, as Harwood deflected Charlotte Chamberlin’s hit onto the post and Gilkes-Tarsey saw a reverse-stick attempt saved by Lorey before the final whistle.

Havering: McCoy, Harwood, Isherwood, Martin, Griggs, Gilkes-Tarsey, Prowse, Schofield, Cash, Earl, Semon, Hopkin, Meehan, Sharp, Chamberlin.

Redbridge: Lorey, Allen, Woods, Paddon, A De Graaf, E De Graaf, Pearce, Rivers, Z Meads, C Meads, Beer, Rapley, Skinner.
