A GOAL in each half sentenced Royston to defeat on Saturday.
The visitors started keenly and were quick to run around the Royston midfield and defence, leaving the home side with no option but to play the opposition's game.
As a result, Royston were unable to forge ahead and put into practice the strategies taken on board at training.
Some nifty changes of position by the visitors' attacking line ensured the Royston defence were kept on their toes.
But even with this effort shortly before half-time the Saints had the chance to show off their short corner routine, and were able to put themselves a goal up by the half time whistle.
Royston rallied for the second half and upped their game, largely thanks to the efforts of Sarah Farmer, who won many free hits; unfortunately these could not be converted into the goal Royston so desperately needed.
The hosts played defensively and managed to hold the visitors to just the one goal lead until ten minutes before the end, when an opportunist goal gave the visitors the victory.
