March Town Ladies had their title-winning party spoiled last weekend.

The Hares, who sealed promotion a fortnight ago, were sent to just their second defeat of the season at Boston United.

The impressive hosts ran out 3-1 winners to move into second place in the standings.

March’s penultimate fixture got off to the worst start imaginable thanks to three quick-fire Boston goals in the opening 20 minutes.

The visitors responded well, with Georgia Brown striking the post from 30 yards, before she eventually did reduce the deficit with a fine long-range strike.

Livvi Hodges and Emma Searle went close for March, but Boston managed to hold onto their two-goal advantage.

Defeat will disappoint the Hares, who have otherwise had an excellent season and lead the standings by four points.

Gary Davis’ side will hope to end their campaign on a high with a victory over P&L Motor Diamonds at the GER on Sunday (2pm).
