Redcar Agilia Bears continued their excellent run of form with a superb 48-42 win at Sheffield on Sunday evening.

It was another solid effort from the whole side, but skipper Charles Wright stole the show with a perfect 15 point maximum at his old track. The Bears took an incredible 11 heat winners out of the 15 heats, against a strong Sheffield side who had been unbeaten at home thus far.

Sheffield actually started the meeting the brighter, leading by 4 early on after a five one by the impressive Aussie partnership at reserve Zaine Kennedy and Josh McDonald. That was as good as it got for the Tigers however, as the Bears clawed back the deficit swiftly. The scores stayed incredibly tight until heat 10, where Jordan Stewart and Michael Palm Toft combined for a 5-1, before new boys Erik Riss and Kasper Andersen combined for a Bears 4-2 in the next heat to give the Bears a 6 point lead.

The sides then traded 4-2’s, with Jordan Stewart rather unlucky in heat 14 to have an engine failure in the last lap when leading. That did not cost the Bears however, and Charles Wright completed his maximum in heat 15 to round off a fine night for the Bears!

Promoter Jitendra Duffill was understandably delighted with his sides efforts, but also paid tribute to the Bears supporters and the Sheffield promotion:

“Another brilliant performance with everybody playing their part. It’s a very exciting time for me and Jade and we both believe that with a little bit of luck 2019 could be a very special one for the Bears. A big shout out to all the Redcar fans who attended today, we all felt your support from the pits and it was awesome to hear you making so much noise. The Sheffield promotion and team deserve recognition for providing what I would class as a perfect race surface and excellent opposition. The racing today was top class and it takes 2 teams to make a great show.”
