Redcar SG Petch Bears fell to a disappointing  49-41 defeat at home to an admittedly impressive Sheffield team on Friday night at the Media Prima Arena.

Sheffield are currently top of the Championship, and showed why on what was a close night until heat 15. The Bears only registered 3 heat winners all night, with two of the Tigers recording paid maximums on their way to a 4 point league win.

Despite the eventual scoreline, it was tight throughout the meeting, and indeed going into heat 13 the scores were tied at 36-36. The impressive Richard Lawson, guesting for Josh Grajczonek , and Kyle Howarth led the Tigers to a 5-1 which gave them a 4 point cushion. Going into the final heat, the Bears needed a 5-1 from exciting pair Ben Barker and Jason Garrity - however it was Howarth and Lawson again who made the gate and sped away for another Sheffield maximum.

Sponsors man of the meeting Charles Wright top scored with 9, with Jason Garrity and Ben Barker getting 8+1 and 8 respectively. The Bears are next in action tomorrow night away at Workington, before facing high flying Glasgow at home next Thursday.
