March Town United’s Cambs Invitation Cup adventure came to an end against higher level Cambridge City last night.
The Hares kept Cambridge quiet for 43 minutes of the semi final, but, while Dan Woods was getting treatment for a back injury, Josh Dawkin broke the deadlock with a crisply struck half volley which arrowed into the net.
Cambridge put the game beyond doubt with a five minute three goal blitz early in the second half.
Goals from former Wisbech Town player Chris Bacon, Tom Pepper and Dawkin left The Hares reeling.
The hosts regrouped but there was still time for Fejiri Okenabirhie to score twice.
Bartlett said: “I’m really disappointed. We showed a lack of quality on the ball and did not put enough pressure on the ball, particularly in the second half.
“There was a big gap to bridge and Cambridge were clinical in the second half. We will take it on the chin.”

Bartlett says he expects to be without Woods for Saturday’s home game with King’s Lynn Town Reserves.
He said: “Dan has been struggling for a while with his back but we felt he deserved a chance to play in the game. I think he’ll miss a couple of games at least.
“It’s going to be a patched up team against King’s Lynn. We’ll see if we can get a reaction.”
