East Men’s League 2N

March Town 2,

North Norfolk 1

March made it a victory on the second successive weekend.

March started slowly and fell behind to a drag flick from a short corner.

The early setback made March reshuffle in defence and midfield and this seemed to take an immediate effect.

March equalised after good work from Ryan Wright allowed Dan Shirley to tap in from close range.

North Norfolk began to tire in the second half and March gained the upper hand.

David Haslegrave knocked the ball into the empty goal after good work from Ben Wright.

Man of the match: Dan Shirley.

Next weekend March travel to Norwich Dragons.

Horncastle 2nds 6,

An early shot from Charlie Bester deflected off the keeper and rolled into the goal.

More goals from Jody Betts and Dougie Patterson, scoring his first this season, put March in the lead.

In the second half Horncastle scored two early goals from short corners. Betts scored a second but with 15 minutes left March went down to 10 men. Bester gained a hat-trick but Horncastle also scored a few more.

With five minutes to go March went back to 11 and kept possession.

MoM: Dougie Patterson.

Next weekend: away against Bourne Deeping 4ths.

March made a break and beat the Cambs defence with a well-timed shot from Bekki White midway through the first half.

Both teams fought hard, but March took the win when Charlotte Norman scored off the right post.
