March Town Ladies were unlucky to end their opening game of 2018 empty-handed.
The Hares side were beaten 2-1 by Newmarket Town in the Cambridgeshire Women’s Premiership last Sunday.
A terrific one-on-one save from goalkeeper Tori Sharpe kept March on level terms a in a goalless opening half.
Shannon Shaw then fired March ahead on the hour with her 10th goal of the season after being picked out by a terrific Chas Miller pass.
Newmarket levelled with 20 minutes to go and then snatched a late winner when the match had looked set to ended in deadlock.
