RIDGEONS LEAGUE

FIRST DIVISION

Stowmarket Town 1

March Town United 1

STOWMARKET Town moved off the bottom of the Ridgeons League First Division for the first time in months, but it could have been so much better agianst promotion-chasing March Town United.

The Gold and Blacks led until the 96th minute when an unfortunate own goal secured the Hares a share of the spoils.

Chris Gray’s brilliantly-executed overhead kick from Kieren Joseph’s cross gave Stow a seventh-minute lead and, had Joseph’s long-range effort not bounced over or Yani Duka’s strike not come back off the bar, the last-gasp heartache would have been avoided.

Duka and March’s Marc Welcher were also dismissed in an ill-tempered affair.
