March Town secured their first Thurlow Nunn Division One point since the beginning of February with a 1-1 draw against fellow mid-table side Haverhill Borough.
The Hares welcomed the Suffolk side to the GER on Saturday afternoon on the back of five consecutive defeats in all competitions, but got off to the perfect start when Ondre Odain made the most of some sloppy Haverhill defending to slot home his 12th goal of the season after just six minutes.
Chances were few and far between in the first period, and the hosts went into the half time break a goal to the good.
March came close to doubling their lead shortly after the restart, with skipper Max Matless prodding a shot onto the post after the ball fell kindly at his feet.
The Hares’ failure to convert their chances was punished after the hour when Matt Staines arrowed home a shot after a controversial free kick was awarded after Matt Cox was adjudged to have fouled a Haverhill opponent.

March went on the hunt for a first league win since February 6 and were denied a priceless three points when Borough ‘keeper Charlie Turner produced a top stop to keep out an Odain effort with 12 minutes remaining, and the two sides were forced to settle for a point apiece.
The Hares will look to go one better this weekend, when they face Suffolk-based opposition once again in the form of Team Bury.
