ROYSTON dominated the game from the beginning and were unlucky not to convert any of the numerous chances they had in the first half.
After the break Royston continued to control the game and Denise Underwood converted one of the many short corners Royston had, giving her side the lead.
Royston's defence remained strong throughout, barely letting their opposition into their half and they extended their lead when Sophie Gathercole put away another short corner after she and Ruth Askham had linked up with a zigzag around the defence.

Royston Ladies III 0 Blueharts III 4
THE Ladies' third team knew this was going to be a hard match and their defence had their work cut out during the whole game.
Sarah Holland, Jo Pearce, Karen Mckay and Hellene Ross all battled well at the back along with youngsters Emma Whitaker and Charlotte Joyce who played their part.
The Ladies had their chances and the forward line of Heather Polge, Leanne Keane, Harriet Johnson and Jess Woodhouse all tried hard to try and get some goals back but unfortunately it was not the Ladies' day.
