Bears pack depleted for Panthers match-up

MIDDLEMOUNT Panthers hit the ground running during last week’s home-town clash with Clermont Bears.

Despite the Bears recouping a little ground late in the second half, the Panthers’ early points advantage proved enough for them to hang on to win 34-24 by full time.

“We came from behind to get a few points back,” Bears coach Rob Williams said.

“They (Middlemount) had a lot of speed out wide and just got around us.”

The Bears were without the services of six front-line players and certainly felt the pinch of the player deficit, but coach Williams wasn’t making any excuses.

“We had to play with the side we had,” he said.
