AN early goal from striker Kate Clarke set St Albans City Ladies on their way to victory over Hitchin Hearts.

The striker headed home from close range after meeting Lucy Hancock’s pinpoint cross from the right wing.

Hancock went close herself soon after but her shot went wide.

City ‘keeper Natalie Hilton did well to keep Hitchin out and Steph Belcher was denied a second goal for City by the post.

Kylie Wren forced the Hitchin ‘keeper into a smart save to keep out her low drive.

City did eventually get a second goal late in the game when Clarke beat two defenders and struck the ball into the roof of the net.

City squad: Hilton, Kiff, Warren, Sherlow, Hutton, Tape, Wren, Belcher, Hancock, Clarke, Brown, Johnston, Kropman, L McGinness, S McGinness.
