Hitchin Hearts made it four wins out of four in returning to Beds and Herts Women's League action.
It was against a resilient Bedford Ladies side who made the Hearts work really hard for their 4-0 win.
Holding on to a slender 1-0 lead courtesy of Gemma Penny's goal, manager John Hawkins brought on sub Frankie Locock 10 minutes into the second half.
In her previous game, Frankie scored a hat-trick and she ensured Hearts got the points with another scintillating three goals.

Although not being in the leading pack at the moment, Hearts have played substantially less games than the sides above them.
