March Town Ladies had their title-winning party spoiled last weekend.

The Hares, who sealed promotion a fortnight ago, were sent to just their second defeat of the season at Boston United.

The impressive hosts ran out 3-1 winners to move into second place in the standings.

March’s penultimate fixture got off to the worst start imaginable thanks to three quick-fire Boston goals in the opening 20 minutes.

The visitors responded well, with Georgia Brown striking the post from 30 yards, before she eventually did reduce the deficit with a fine long-range strike.

Livvi Hodges and Emma Searle went close for March, but Boston managed to hold onto their two-goal advantage.

Defeat will disappoint the Hares, who have otherwise had an excellent season and lead the standings by four points.
