It was honours even as two of Fenland’s top ladies football teams went head-to-head last weekend.
March Town Ladies and Wisbech Town Ladies were forced to share a point after their Cambs Women’s Championship North encounter ended 1-1.
Wisbech began the tie on the front food and took the lead thanks to Emily Stephenson, whose free-kick beat Hares goalkeeper Tori Sharpe.
March responded well and went close through Adele Munday and Ella Nutter, but couldn’t find a way through as the sides went into the break.
March began the second half as they ended the first and were rewarded for their pressure when player-of-the-match Georgia Brown slotted home after her initial effort bounced off the crossbar.
Both sides then went out in search for the winner, but neither could find it and had to settle for a point, which sees March extend their lead at the top of the standings to five points.
Wisbech currently occupy second place by virtue of a superior goal difference over Ketton.
