BLUEHARTS slipped to their second defeat of the season as they went down 6-2 to Cambridge University.
The home team found themselves 1-0 down at the break after a short corner was deflected in by the students, but things went downhill in the first 15 minutes of the second half.
Cambridge banged in another three goals to leave the Blues four down and with little chance of taking anything from the game.
Despite the score, and Blueharts not playing very well, a frantic 15 minutes then ensued.
Firstly, Blueharts made it 4-1 when a short corner strike from captain John Barrett was saved and Ashley Hammond was on hand to follow up.
Then Barrett got on the scoresheet himself when his strike from a short corner flew into the bottom corner to make it 4-2.

However, from the restart, Cambridge went up the other end to make it 5-2.
Things were end to end by this stage and almost immediately Blueharts had another chance to score when Mike Oliver was upended and a flick award.
However Ollie Hammond couldn't take advantage as his effort was saved before Cambridge then added a sixth goal late on.
The result means that Blueharts slip to fourth in the league as they await the visit of unbeaten league leaders Harleston Magpies to Hitchin Boys' School this weekend.
