March Bears push league-leaders all the way as remarkable improvement continues
MARCH Bears continued their remarkable improvement by pushing unbeaten league-leaders Renegades all the way during a narrow 19-12 defeat on Saturday.
The home side from Cottenham converted a penalty to take the lead before adding an unconverted try to go 8-0 in front. However, two Matty Day penalties pulled the Bears back in contention before the break.
A penalty from either side, Day’s third from four attempts, made the score 11-9 as the Bears withstood some heavy Renegades pressure. Eventually the home side touched down their second unconverted try to go 16-9 in front.
Day fired another penalty between the post to make it 16-12 before one last penalty from the home side secured their seven-point victory.
Bears president Barry Feetham said: “It was a very good game to watch between the Bears, the most improved side in the Greene King X.X. Super Deuxieme Nord Merit League table, and the unbeaten Renegades.
