Gorleston 3

March Town Utd 2

The Hares’ first team put on a brave performance at free-scoring Gorleston, who were undefeated in the Premier Division, with only 12 players.

The home side looked lively early on, but the Hares were holding their own and had a couple of chances before going behind on 13 minutes.

But Lewis Thompson got one back on 32 minutes before March went behind again on 40 minutes.

The second half was a good contest with the hosts increasing their lead a few minutes from the end.

It looked all over, but David Jackson got one back and March had two chances to get another in time added-on.

The Reserves won 4-0 against Manea, in a game they controlled. First half goals from Ross Alexander, his first for the team, and Toby Ayres were followed in the second period by goals from Ash Brand and Luke Pepper to wrap it up.
