Bears take all four points!
Redcar SG Petch Bears continued their fine run of form with a 50-39 win over the Scunthorpe Scorpions on Sunday, giving the Bears the full 4 league points on offer.
It was another solid team performance, with 6 of the 7 Bears recording at least a paid win. Ben Barker top scored for the Bears with 11+2, with Ellis Perks scoring an excellent 9+1 from the number 4 position. The Bears actually started the meeting off fairly slowly, and found themselves four points behind after three heats to the fast starting Scorpions. A 5-1 in heat 4 levelled the scores, but it was not until three 5-1s in four heats from heats 7 to 10 that the Bears hit the front.
It was a tough night for the Scorpions, with Tero Aarnio withdrawing from the meeting after a crash with Charles Wright in heat 6. Our best wishes go to Tero for a speedy recovery.
The win means the Bears tighten their grip on a top four place in a league, and was the third full 4 point haul away from home this season. We are next in action on Thursday, at home against Peterborough in Championship action with a 7:30pm start.
