There was a clean sweep of wins for the first teams at the hockey clubs of Blueharts and Stevenage - or at least for the ones that got a match played.

The ladies' firsts at the Hitchin-based club had their game called off due to the wet weather, a fate that also befell the sixth and seventh teams.

The men played though and won 1-0 at Harleston Magpies thanks to a solitary goal from Jack Floor.

This was no smash and grab raid, however, as they dominated for long periods and should have wrapped up the win before the teenager’s goal, his second in two weeks.

Over at Stevenage the ladies beat Bedford 2-1 while the men were involved in a high-scoring clash with Letchworth seconds, winning 7-4.

The seconds lost 2-1 at home to Rickmansworth while the thirds were beaten 3-2 by Welwyn Garden City, meaning the only other win in the men's section came for the fourths.

They beat St Albans 2-0 despite less than auspicious preparations with late arrivals and late cry-offs.

They still started with 11 though and after surviving early St Albans pressure, they went in front from a short corner, Geoff Trew firing low into the backboard.

A change of shape brought St Albans back into the game but again, Stevenage dealt with the threats admirably.

And after winning a succession of corners, they extended their lead.

Trew's initial effort was blocked but he laid the rebound off to Kevin Robbins and he found a gap at the near post.

In the ladies' section, the seconds were the only other winners, also beating St Albans 2-0.

The fourths drew 1-1 with Saints while the thirds lost 4-0 at Saffron Walden.

Back at Blueharts, the men’s second team maintained their 100 per cent start to the season thanks to two goals from James Sandford and one from Chris Nicholls earning them a 3-1 win over St Albans.

They were also indebted though to Cameron Carr for some fine saves from a series of St Albans short corners.

The ladies' seconds went down 4-2 to St Albans despite goals from Chloe Luetchford and Kate Chapman.

The thirds won though and for the second weekend running, Jo Floor kept pace with son Jack with a goal.

Kiki Arellano maintained her prolific recent run with a hat-trick, player of the match Emily Bryan scored twice and Lizzie Bayley and Izzy Rutter got the others in an 8-0 success over Letchworth seconds.

Ben Keegan scored his first of the season for the Men’s 3s but they lost 2-1 in a frustrating defeat to bottom of the table Cheshunt.

Player-of-the-match Scott Cromack was on target twice as the men’s fourths won 3-1 against Letchworth thirds, Henry Ripper adding the other, and there was another dominant win over a Letchworth side for the ladies' fifths.

They won 9-0 with Millie Winton Niamh Krishman and Sophie Burston each scoring twice.

Debbie Wells, Becky Graves and Mattie Childs got the others.

The men’s fifths appeared to be heading for victory when they went 3-1 up against Hertford.

But the speed of their young opponents' front line eventually told and they fell to a 6-4 loss.

Ben and Ashley Hammond bagged a brace each.

However, there was at the consolation of a couple of promising debuts from youngsters Rory Williams and Henry Payne.

Blueharts inflicted more misery on Letchworth as the men’s sixths beat their fifths 9-1.

Jake Sudweeks, Charlie Moore, John Russell (two each), Paul Krishman, Mark Russell and Simon Little were their scorers.

The sevenths drew 1-1 with Hertford, Keith Noble getting the goal.
