March started well in windy conditions but dynamic play that saw Wisbech cross the line for the first of their 13 tries on 10 minutes as second row Todd Wollard caught a fine pass from Sam Anderson who converted.
Visiting scrum-half Jack Malkin was prominent linking with fly-half James Rose who quickly shifted the ball to the centres.
James Napier touched down in the 20th minute taking a great pass from Matthew Wait.
A Nat Humphreys' try followed after a great drive from Henry Goose and a deft pass from Rose to make it 17-0.
March battled on but Humphreys crossed after an exchange of passes between the backs for his second try.
As half-time approached, Wisbech upped the pace and Ali Comben sold the defender a dummy and took the score to 27-0.
Wait finished a good move with a burst of pace for a 34-0 lead at the break.
March lost their big No. 8 just after half-time and Wait took full advantage by completing his hat-trick.
Man of the match, Goose capped a fine game with a try and Napier scored twice for 62-0.
Three more tries from Wait, Napier and finally, rotund full-back Raimus before the end.
