Royston started the first quarter with their usual spirit and determination, and as a result were soon in front - but they finally went down 46-30 against a strong Team Beds.
Early goals from Tracy Stimson and Emma Kelly soon had Royston off the mark, as Jackie Huttlestone and Carol Parcell created room in attack.
But Royston went into the second quarter trailing by three goals with Natalie Williams and Karen Hume joining the action.
Royston's defence of Jo Moxham, Anna Pinner and Emma Highton had to be on top form.
