Esher were put under pressure by the Student side but over came to show some real determination, ensuring the Black and Amber's sixth win of the season. This is the third week in a row that Loughborough have lost by two points which demonstrates how close the visitors came once again.
Esher were reduced to 14 men twice during the game and the boot of Park's Grimoldby cost the men from Molesey Road their first away win of the season.
Esher head to Rosslyn Park this Friday to play an evening match against the second side in the League.
Esher took an early lead but Blackheath staged a late comeback, however the damage had been done as the rain came down and the men in Black and Amber edged out their London rivals.
