Injury-depleted Bears suffer

PEAK Downs Pirates were back in winning form with a 32-20 win over Clermont Bears at the weekend.

Running off losses to Dysart and the Tigers, the incentive was there for Peak Downs coach Mitch Wyatte to find the winning edge seen in matches earlier this season.

“I thought we did well considering, because it's always hard in Clermont,” Wyatte said.

“We trained real strong last week and we'll have another couple of weeks with the break to get back into it and get back on track.”

Clermont coach Rob Williams said injuries played havoc with the team's continuity.

“At halftime we were down to two on the bench – we had one broken jaw, one was concussed, corks, shins... the list was endless.”

“But it was a bloody good game of footy, very courageous from our side of things.

“A lot of the blokes wanted a blow, but just couldn't because we had hardly anyone on the bench.”
