Blueharts thrashed Harpenden 8-2 in a goal feast but were still not satisfied.
In a game where they were never under pressure, it enabled Harts to blow away the cobwebs after the winter break.
Harts took the lead early on when John Sapsed drove into the D and shot at goal - it deflected off a Harpenden foot and in.
Paul Buckland scored next with a strong drag flick.
A good team move saw Sapsed win a penalty flick, which John Barratt converted for his first goal this season.
Adam Wells then scored the fourth with a trademark tap in to end the half 4-0 up.
