The visitors batted first and found themselves languishing at 67-8 before some late resistance saw them muster 121 all out.
Steve Seymour did the bulk of the damage claiming 5-52, while captain Chris Ringham chipped in with 3-15.
In reply, three batsman fell for ducks as March found themselves 62-4.
But Stephen Shaw, who had been an injury doubt for the game, scored an unbeaten 71 and Ben Pyle made 25 not out to see them home.
