MARCH’S hockey teams treated spectators to a feast of goals at the weekend, as both the first and third teams hit double figures.

East Men’s Hockey League - Division Two North

March 10 Bourne 1

MARCH turned on the style to thump a stunning 10 goals past Bourne.

Matt Wallis and Rob Mitchell both scored hat-tricks, Jody Betts bagged a brace, David Hazelgrave netted his first of the season and Ed Batt scored a sweet strike from a short corner to secure victory for the home side.

The emphatic performance sees March continue their push for promotion. Man of the match was Jacob Fraser.

East Men’s League - Division Five North-West

Rutland III 2 March III 10

A RUTHLESS display of finishing from Brian Fox saw March’s thirds match the stunning performance of their first team by smashing a hatful of goals past Rutland.

Man of the match Fox hit the back of the net four times, Ben Wright bagged a hat-trick and Charlie Boughton, Matt Lakey and Toby Fox completed the rout.

Next week the in-form thirds play Alford and District, hoping to avenge a 7-1 defeat earlier in the season.
