Both sides met in August 2013 again at Cougar Park , playing a closely contested and highly entertaing game , much appreciated by the home support. This years clash kicks off at 12.30 pm , with the Bees taking on a Cougar Team made up of Club Coaching Staff , and some of the clubs Under 20s and Junior Players.
