East Men’s League 2N

Norwich Dragons 1,

March Town 6

March started slowly but managed to take the lead through Ben Wright who smashed it into the roof of the net.

March didn’t take long to double their lead when Adam Graham took a quick free hit, dribbled into the ‘D’ and scored with a fantastic reverse stick strike. Graham scored his second and Norwich responded with a breakaway goal just before half-time.

The second half was more of the same as March controlled the game. Wright completed his hat-trick with a drag flick.

Man of the match: Ben Wright.

Next weekend March host Norwich City 2nds.

East Women’s League 3NW(S)

March Town 4,

Cambridge Nomads 2nd 1

March started off strongly and with some great work up the left wing by Libby Wallis and Lauren Lakey, the ball met Bekki White in the D where she lifted the ball and was deflected off the keeper resulting in March’s first goal.

Nomads fought back straight away and scored an equaliser. After some great work from Amy Laws and Rachel Mottram, the ball met Charlotte Norman and she beat the keeper.

After half-time, with some great tackling and work on the right, Georgia White slotted the ball to Louise Minnis who scored in the top left of the net. Lakey scored the final goal from the left post.

Player of the match: Charlotte Norman.

Next weekend March travel to Cambs South who are top of the league.
