Chatteris were the better team for most of the first period and were ahead after half an hour with a well-taken goal.

But just before the break Matt Barber, who had just come on, finished off some fine team play for his first Hares’ goal.

March in the second half scored through Ondre Odain on the turn after persistence by Fiddes had set him up. Then Dan Woods scored from a free-kick from an angle some distance out.

Chatteris had a few good chances and James Mortlock made several good stops, including a great save late on.
