Blueharts Ladies suffered a disappointing 3-1 loss against Broxbourne.

Harts started slowly and were punished by an early Broxbourne goal before they got into the game.

The rest of the half was keenly contested with chances at both ends and Harts were unlucky not to score from a series of short corners as the Broxbourne keeper kept her side ahead with several good saves.

Harts finally broke through after the break with an equaliser from Carol Lamey but were unable to build on their comeback as Broxbourne scored two further goals.
