SAFFRON Walden inflicted a first defeat of the season on Royston, who were demoted from second place in the league as a result.
Royston had gone ahead through Kate Nankivell when she struck home a big hit after storming the opposition's defence, but they were soon pegged back by their opponents whose goal made it 1-1 at half time.
The second half saw Royston lose some of the magic they have possessed so far this season, and their opponents took full advantage and put away a further two goals.
