Bears Fall Short in Mounties Arm Wrestle.
The North Sydney Bears were unsuccessful in their trip to Aubrey Keech Reserve going down to Mounties 32-12 in their Round 6 match.
Norths avoided an early scare as a Mounties try was called back for an obstruction but errors plagued the side as their opponents ran in three tries in the first half.
Josh Ralph put the Bears on the board but yet another obstruction denied the half from posting first points, however, a barnstorming Fletcher Baker closed the deficit early in the second half with a try of his own.
The sides traded four-pointers as Mounties hit back, but a Volkman kick for fullback Brad Abbey kept the Bears in the contest, but it wasn't to be as their opponents landed the final blow on the buzzer.
