March Ladies’ first league defeat comes in April
S Tech League North
March Town Ladies 2 Swineshead Institute 4
The Hares suffered their first league defeat on Sunday.
The opponents took a 2-0 lead in an end-to-end game, with Ella Nutter going close for the Hares. Keeper Tori Sharpe was also in good form, but couldn’t stop Swineshead going 3-0 up.
Adele Munday scored an excellent goal from the edge of the area to reduce the deficit and PoM Jade Pointer also hit a great shot into the far corner but Swineshead also got another. Sydney Davis hit the post late on as the Hares pushed for more goals.
Manager Gary Davis said: “To lose our first league game in April is a good record at any level and the team played well – we just didn’t put our chances away.”
The Hares next take on Ketton at home on Easter Sunday.
March Soccer School made hay while the sun shone in a 12-3 victory over Sawtry Colts.
Goals rained in from Dan Cave (6), Jenson Carpenter (2), Duke Higham (2) plus singles for Riley Collier-Holland and MoM Joseph Tully.

Wisbech Acorns 8 March Park Rangers 4
March played really well in the first half and deservedly turned round at half-time leading 3-2 through goals from Lewis Kent, Berzan Gokman and Dalton ‘DJ’ Moore.
The second half started really badly for March, conceding a goal in the first attack and quickly conceding three more goals.
They scored a well deserved fourth goal with a Moore penalty.
MoM: Jonathon Marsh.
