WISBECH captain Gary Freear was in fine form in his last Tucker League game as captain on Saturday, helping his side to a massive 131-run win over March.
Freear had an opening spell of 6-35 helping a ragged March dismissed for a miserly 93.
Williams had earlier scored 80 in the Wisbech total of 227-7.
Wisbech finished the season in third place and March came sixth in the 12-team table.
Elsewhere, fine scores from Grant Clark (82) and Keith Jakings (72) plus a 5-25 from Paul Strickle helped Wisbech seconds to a 58-run Hunts Division Two win over Buckden and Williams hit a superb 150 not out to help Wisbech's first Sunday side to a 170-run win over Godmanchester.
A Steve Seymour century closed the curtain on March first team's season on Sunday and looks to have secured third spot for them in Rutland League Division Two. Seymour and Andrew Mills put on an 86-run opening partnership on a good batting track at The Avenue.
Mills hit 31, Seymour scored 109 - his sixth ton of the summer - and Andrew Stone was 49 not out in the 215-7 total.
Mills finished with figures of 4-32 and Seymour took 3-27 - Oakham ending on a round 200.
Wicketkeeper Gary Nicholls stepped up to the plate with a timely 61 not out, as March seconds narrowly won their Fenland Trophy match, at
St Ives, by two wickets.
