They came across, however, a side who were up for a win on their own turf and who duly sent IES back to the bottom of self pity with an emphatic display of passionate hockey, albeit with a lot of help from some controversial umpiring.

IES fell behind after five minutes as they let a March 16 yard hit through to the right wing, and the ball ended up to an unmarked forward who slapped it past Lane for 1-0.

IES levelled almost directly through a Scott Cole penalty corner strike but that was about it for IES's first half efforts.

March took a 2-1 lead from a penalty corner deflection and took a 3-1 lead via a dubious deflected goal off Peck's raised foot from what seemed to be a cross, not shot.

IES were distraught and argued the decision, claiming the ball was raised and not a shot, but the umpire was not in agreement.

Half time came and IES looked to battle back and did so throughout, stifling many a March attack.

The home side scored their fourth following a long corner and their forward slotted home. Man-of-the-match Pawsey was the one shining light of an otherwise awful day.

Hill Piling sponsored IES face Spalding at Copleston this Saturday aiming to get back their season back on track.

IES team: Lane, Peck, Pettit, Brown, Short, Borwick, Tuitoek, Pawsey, Cole, Tingey and Taylor.
