March Town Ladies were 10 minutes away from victory before a late horror show cost them on their return from lockdown.
Having held a one-goal lead, March were made to pay, losing 4-3 to St Ives Town Ladies Development in the Cambridgeshire Women’s County League Premier Division on Sunday.
Player of the match Yazmin Holmes found Josie Turner with a defence-splitting pass to give the Hares an advantage, before Kelsey Ramm and Emma Searle netted.
It was not all one-way traffic as St Ives, who forced Hares ‘keeper Tori Sharpe into some fine saves, scored before a penalty made it 3-2 at half-time.
Eleanor Mcleish and Abby Grist went close for the hosts after the break, but a speculative effort from distance dipped over Sharpe to level the score.
