BLUEHARTS overcame Bishops Stortford with the only goal of the game coming from Paul Buckland.
It was the first 1-0 result for the Blues since March 2004, but they know that if they had put their chances away it could have been more.
Early on at Hitchin Boys School, the home team were in command, winning three short corners in the first 10 minutes.
It took until midway through the first half for the Blues to make their dominance count when Buckland's dragged flicked effort found the net.

Stortford did come back into the game for a short time, but their cause in the search for an equaliser wasn't helped when they saw a player sin binned.
The Blues also had numerous short corners which they couldn't convert and they had a good chance in the last minute but Mike Oliver missed from close range.
Blueharts second XI picked up a point against Luton thanks to Richard Middeditch's effort. The third team game was cancelled, while the fourth and fifth XI both lost.
