March Town Ladies will look to return stronger from a possible enforced break after weekend defeat.
Three first-half goals helped visitors Cambridge City Ladies 3rds beat the Hares 5-0 in the Cambridgeshire Women’s County League Premier Division on Sunday at the GER.
City scored twice in five minutes, before Hares goalkeeper Tori Sharpe made an excellent double-save from the penalty spot.
Josie Turner’s effort flashed wide for March, before City netted a third on the stroke of half-time.
Megan Webb, Abby Grist and Adele Munday all went close after the break for March, but the visitors converted twice more to confirm the victory.
March boss Gary Davis said: “The team showed a lot of controlled aggression and passion in the second half but we were really undone in the first 45 minutes.
“It’s typical that we come across Cambridge City with a forward from their senior team who didn’t have a game and she scored all five goals.
