It was a bumper weekend for Blueharts Hockey Club with goals galore across the entire club.

In total they managed 45 with one of the biggest scoring games coming in the the ladies' fifth-team's 7-0 win at Harpenden.

The development team included seven players under the age of 16 and the goals came from 14-year-old Izzy Rutter, who bagged three, Ella Haskins (two), Sophie Burston and Hannah Cox.

Captain Debbie Wells said: “I’m so proud of the way the team played. Our juniors have been growing in confidence every game under the care and guidance of the more experienced players and the team and going from strength to strength.”

The firsts were the only team in the ladies' section not to pick up at least a point when they lost 2-0 to Letchworth.

The biggest winners were the thirds who beat Saffron Walden 8-1.

Blueharts' men also had a successful day with five wins from their seven games.
