A storming second half performance saw March Bears claim the points – and the local bragging rights – over rivals Wisbech Wildcats last weekend.

Six of the Bears’ boys helped themselves to tries, with five coming in the second period, as they swept past their local adversaries with a 46-13 victory.

The Wildcats took an early lead through a penalty, but the hosts fired back through Donavon Stone’s try.

Ill-discipline allowed Wisbech to reduce the deficit with another penalty, but Jonathan Beavis soon slotted a kick of his own to give the Bears a 10-6 lead going into the break.

The second half try-fest began through skipper Simon Althoff who dotted down after some powerful running from Kris Feaviour and Tom Ratcliffe added another soon after following another slick move.

Wisbech started to put together a few phases and managed to reduce March’s lead to 22-13, but Jonathon Tulip soon extended the home side’s advantage when he crashed over.

Edward Cribb then secured the points with another try, before Ben Pyle and Jack Allison rounded off a successful afternoon for the Bears with two more scores.
