A superb Callum Paterson strike from outside the box gave them a 1-0 half-time lead.
Despite having Blazej Augustyn sent off, some dogged persistence from Osman Sow led to a second goal that wrapped up a 2-0 victory.
Unfortunately, the goals - and the rearguard display with 10 men - went unnoticed.
Fighting with the stewards and setting off a banger, before finishing off by attacking a Ross County supporters bus, assaulting the driver and stealing a drum off one of the visiting fans.
Decent, law-abiding Hearts fans showed their disgust on fan message boards and via social media.
Many emailed the club themselves to complain.
Naturally, Heart of Midlothian football club themselves were not impressed and issued the following statement:
"It is with considerable disappointment that the club, once again, is put in the position of having to apologise both to our own supporters and, in this case, to Ross County Football Club and their travelling support for the appalling behaviour of a small group of 15-25 young so-called 'Hearts supporters'.
"Let us make it clear...the club does not need these individuals and, most certainly, does not want them if this is going to be the way they continue to behave.
"Ann Budge has contacted the Ross County chairman to personally apologise and to ask that this apology is passed on to the supporters and to the coach driver, whose trip to Edinburgh was so badly tainted by the behaviour of this group.
"Apologies are however not sufficient. The club is doing everything in its power to put an end to this type of behaviour.
"We have been working closely with Police Scotland and other agencies to gather sufficient evidence against the individuals involved to enable the appropriate action to be taken.
"It gives us no pleasure to say that a number of fans will be banned as a consequence of their recurring bad behaviour.
"We will now be working additionally with other agencies including schools and social work departments to try to take a more holistic view of the problems facing our football club and the wider community.
"Within the stadium at all forthcoming home games we will have a greater stewarding presence and on some occasions, Police will be monitoring certain areas directly.
"We are also now looking at implementing much more strenuous ticketing control measures.
"We realise that these measures may then cause some inconvenience to other Hearts fans however we know that the majority of supporters at Tynecastle are as keen as we are to address these problems.
"For instance we find it incredible that even following the terrifying ordeal a young Hearts fan had at Celtic Park due to pyrotechnics in “our” section, an incident which led to him receiving medical treatment, certain individuals still chose to repeat this utterly irresponsible action again on Saturday.
"Once again, we had a home sell out on Saturday with almost 16,000 Hearts fans in attendance...and yet, instead of talking about a great performance, our great supporters and the club's great initiatives, we are instead apologising for the appalling and, in some cases criminal, behaviour, of 15-25 individuals.
"Our inbox at Tynecastle is filled with emails from Hearts supporters asking us to take action and we want to assure them, that we will not rest until we have satisfactorily addressed this problem.
"It seems that many football clubs have to deal with this problem...the actions of a few, besmirching the reputation of the majority of their decent supporters and all clubs are doing their best to address these minority problems, which can only be for the good of the game.
"We will certainly never accept it as 'an inevitable part of the game' here at Tynecastle."
Tired of seeing a thuggish minority besmirch the reputation of the club, they are fed up to the back teeth of such cretins and will back Hearts in their bid to drive them out of Tynecastle.
However, morons tend not to go away quietly as this numbskull on Facebook showed with his reaction to the statement put out by the club:
There were many others who saw nothing wrong with the so-called 'Young Team' (aka The Acne-Ridden Pillocks) setting off a banger in the Roseburn Stand of Tynecastle.
Two years ago, Irish journalist Phil Mac Giolla Bhain, interviewed a Celtic supporter by the name of Joe Clark.
Joe has chronic lung disease and watches games in the disabled section of Scottish football grounds.
The interview took place not long after Celtic's European Cup tie against Cliftonville where there was an incident with a banger being let off.
A revealing passage from the interview with Joe Clark follows:
Here, the interview focussed on the negative effects of setting off pyrotechnics within a crowded area.
The piece can be read by clicking here.
There are reasons why pyrotechnics are banned from football grounds in Britain - and Dr Frosdick has outlined them.
After all, there is still an element of risk when trained experts use them - let alone plonkers like 'The Young Team'.
Lest we forget the physical hooliganism that took place under the direction of these idiots.
Ross County, a club that did what it could to help Hearts during the Edinburgh side's year of turmoil when it was placed into administration two years ago, received an ungrateful slap in the face last Saturday.
No one should go to a football match and be assaulted.
There are some who persist with the line of "oh they're just kids... daft wee laddies".
Unfortunately, last Saturday was not an isolated incident.
Last month, the 'daft wee laddies' thought it was 'clever' to set fire to an Irish flag outside Celtic Park when Hearts visited that ground.
Trouble was caused on the trains back to Edinburgh from Glasgow that night.
Incidents of sectarian chanting happened during Hearts' fixture at Inverness not so long ago and at other grounds during last season.
If such behaviour goes unchecked, these morons will think they can get away with anything.
Their antics will grow and grow as the envelope is pushed further and further.
And then you will have the next John Wilson - the scumbag who attacked Neil Lennon at Tynecastle in 2011.
That is why Hearts have taken the gloves off. They will be damned if another John Wilson emerges.
Young Team beware - the club you claim to support is coming for you.
There will be no more 'last chances'.
