Hares are held after conceding late leveller

March Town 1 Swaffham 1

MARCH were denied a third win in eight days by a late Swaffham equaliser on Saturday which puts The Hares in seventh spot in the Ridgeons League Division One.

In a very quiet first half, the Hares came up against a well organised Swaffham side and there were few chances.

March’s best chance of the game was Denny Escorcio hitting the post.

In the second half there was more action, and both sides fashioned chances as Swaffham came back into the game.

Ash Brand again caused problems when he came off the bench and he bagged the first goal with about 20 minutes to go.

His penalty was saved, but Brand recovered to slot in the rebound.

Brand and Escorcio wasted further good chances to seal the game, before the Pedlars levelled in the dying minutes.
