March Town had to settle for 2-2 draw after conceding a late equaliser to Ipswich II in East Men’s League 2N.

Ipswich broke the deadlock but the returning Simon Coe equalised for March after a scramble in the Ipswich goalmouth. March grew into the game and had chances to go ahead but their forwards couldn’t take them.

The hosts started the second half with more attacking threat and Coe scored his second of the game after good work from David Haslegrave and Stuart Mills.

But, with five minutes left, Ipswich equalised. In the last two minutes March had two penalty corners but failed to convert them.
