Hockey round-up: Last-gasp fightback preserves March Town men’s first team’s unbeaten run
UNBEATEN March Town men’s first team continued their incredible start to life in division one by fighting back from two goals down to claim a point against Cambridge City II.
March preserved their unbeaten record when a last-gasp equaliser from Grant Gilmour netted them a 2-2 draw and left them fourth in the table.
The in-form side had found themselves two goals down at the break but Scott Welcher’s finish and Gilmour’s late strike rescued a dramatic point.
• AN IMPRESSIVE debut from Martin Todd and a man-of-the-match performance from Hugh Whittome were not enough to prevent March II falling to a 4-0 defeat against Horncastle.
• JAMES Fountain’s second hat-trick of the season inspired March III to a 5-1 thrashing of Spalding III.
