March Bears launched their quest for more glory in terrific style last Saturday.
The Eastern Counties Greene King Division Two West champions dished out a 77-7 drubbing to St Ives 2nds in their opening Cambridgeshire County Cup clash.
Bears tucked into a feast of 13 tries with skipper James Knight and Jonathan Beavis both claiming hat-tricks.
Dan Ryan, Jason Rainbow, Will Bure, Stewart Rigby, Gareth Edward, Aaron Boxall and Ed Cribbons all added a try apiece while Connor Porter sent over six successful conversions.
Skipper Knight hailed his side’s dominant display. He said: “I asked the boys for a big performance and that’s exactly what I got from each and every one of them.
