Overnight frost prevented some hockey teams from playing but Stevenage and Blueharts did get some games played.

Stevenage had four games go ahead, three of them for the ladies.

Only one won though, the seconds beating Welwyn Garden City 2-0 in East League Division Three South West.

Claire Weston set up Abbie Luhman for the first, firing home the rebound after her initial shot came off the keeper's pads.

And after April Wrangles had produced a simply stunning save to keep them in front, diving to her right and pushing the ball round the post, Holly Portingale and Chloe Jones combined to give Lara Gavillet her first of the season.

The firsts lost 5-2 at Hertford in Division Two while the fourths were beaten 3-0 at home to St Albans in Division Five.

Player of the match was Liz Siddall for another amazing save on the line and great defensive play.

The men's first team won as well, beating Bishop's Stortford 3-2 at home to record their sixth success of the season.

Blueharts had a couple of big inter-club games for the men that also went ahead.

The thirds and fourths drew 1-1, Hayden Haywood opening the scoring for the fours before Ben Keegan equalised.

Paul Krishman meanwhile scored six as the sixth team beat the sevenths 8-1.

Dave Moore and Mark Russell got the others with Chris Platt on target for the sevens.

Elsewhere in the men's section, the first team won 3-1 against Old Southendians to move third in the table.

Ben Apperly had equalised for Blueharts before second half goals from Graham Burr and Nick Ross turned the tables in their favour.

Tom Russell's defensive work earned him the player of the match award.

The table-topping seconds were held to a 2-2 draw at Royston, Adam Wells scoring twice but Royston equalising with four minutes remaining.

The fifths saw a 3-0 lead in just 20 minutes evaporate into a 7-3 loss against Potters Bar.

Pete Mitchell, Ashley Hammond and George Gregory got the goals for the Hitchin side.

Over in the ladies' side of the club, the first team lost 2-0 to Upminster but a Meme Brown goal gave the seconds a 1-0 win over Broxbourne, converting after a cross from player-of-the-match Ellie Johnson.

The threes beat Rickmansworth 2-1 away to stay top of Division Three South West on goal difference.

Josie Layton opened the scoring for the Blues with a rebound from a Kiki Arellano shot, and then turned provider for Rachel Campbell to double the lead.

The fourths were also in fine form, winning 2-0 against Broxbourne thanks to a Katrina McLarty double and outstanding performances from Honor Bentley, Chloe Major and Charlotte Aves.

They couldn't follow that up a day later, going down 2-0 to Bedford, Rho Keen the player of the match this time.

Jenny Burr and Izzy Marshall scored two great goals as the sixths beat Broxbourne 2-0, while the sevens were also winners, beating Shefford and Sandy 2-1.
