Adam Stolerman maintained his excellent run of goal-scoring form with both goals as Redbridge boosted their title hopes with victory over defending champions Hendon at Fairlop.
Jubilant RJC manager Eilon Kennet told JC Sport: "Games against Hendon are always hard. We got the breaks in the first half with Stolly scoring twice with almost identical goals.
"Second half was about parking the bus and defending resolutely.
"It was a genuine team performance with everyone doing their bit, so I'd like to nominate all 13 players,
"It was good to get back to winning, hopefully we can make it a habit."
Disappointed Hendon boss David Garbacz told JC Sport: "It was one of the most frustrating matches I have ever watched.
Redbridge had a game-plan which was to soak up our pressure and hit us on the counter-attack and to give them credit it worked like a dream.
"They took a lead through two quality finishes from a quality striker from their only two forays into our half, and as much as we huffed and puffed, we could not break them down and eventually ran out of ideas.
"We dominated possession but we needed a break and when Dovid Korman hit the underside of the bar early in the second half it never looked like it was going to be our day.
"Overall I was disappointed with our performance – we had some absentees but that is no excuse – we are the champions and performances must improve.
"We have left ourselves with very little margin for error but we are still more than capable of stringing together a proper run of results."
