Ely City Mens 1st XI 6 March Town 1st XI 3

TOMMY Hugo claimed his second hat-trick in succession as Ely made it two wins out of two to lead the Division 3NW table.

A tough game was expected because March had been relegated from East Division 2N last season, whilst Ely had just missed out on promotion.

March had also won their opening game 11-0 against Boston, but soon found themselves on the back foot in this fixture as Hugo and Feroze Abbas gave the hosts a 2-0 lead within five minutes.

City then found the net again when the March players responded to the whistle from a nearby rugby match, but sporting captain Chris Vincett managed to persuade the umpire to award a penalty corner rather than a goal.

March immediately pulled one back, but Hugo restored Ely's two-goal advantage when his effort just crept over the line.

In the second half Vincett's penalty flick made it 4-1 after an horrific challenge on Abbas, and Hugo completed his hat-trick by rounding the 'keeper soon afterwards.

March scored again to make it 5-2, but Hugo's fourth goal of the afternoon put the result beyond doubt before the visitors scored again.
