Bears put up brave fight at Edinburgh
The S.G.Petch Bears battled hard at Edinburgh last night but with mechanical gremlins besetting Ben Barker and already missing Charles Wright it was just too much to overcome despite a great performance from guest Richie Worrell. Richie weighed in with 13 ( plus a bonus) and was well backed by Jonas Andersen and Coty Garcia but with other struggling with the tight track the possibility of a match bonus point just slipped away after a heat 14 5-1 to the Monarchs. The final score was 52-40 to the Monarchs.
With Jason Garrity and Charles Wright returning to the side the Bears go to Ipswich tonight determined to get something from the fixture. Jack Parkinson-Blackburn covers for the absent Ellis Perks.
