March Town Ladies picked up their third S-Tech league win on the bounce with an impressive 4-0 win over Cambridge Rangers.
Emma Searle broke the deadlock from close range after Jade Pointer won possession.

Searle hit the post before scoring again to make it 3-0 before half time.
Some first class defending thwarted Rangers and, on 85 minutes, Searle completed her first senior hat-trick.
