The Hares stormed back from two goals down to draw level with higher-level Peterborough Northern Star in the FA Vase on Saturday, but were left heartbroken thanks to a late winner at the GER.

The UCL Premier Division side looked to be cruising into the next round after going 2-0 to the good thanks to Zak Munton’s double, but Mel Mattless’ men halved the deficit when Michael Chow slotted home from the spot after PNS’ Christian Gordon was shown a red card.

March completed their comeback through substitute Dayne Moore’s strike, but Jack Flintoft found the net with minutes remaining to secure his side’s passage into the next round.
