Bears Women recover impressively

Liam Moakes 19th Apr, 2018 Updated: 19th Apr, 2018

WARWICKSHIRE Bears Women regrouped from defeat earlier in the day to win 29-27 against London Titans 2nds in the British Wheelchair Basketball Women’s League at the weekend.

With the scores level heading into the final minute, it was the Bears who prevailed as they were rewarded for a performance which demonstrated the improvements they have made throughout the season.

The victory followed a 63-17 loss to Blackhawks, who were always likely to prove formidable opponents.

From the tip-off, the Bears looked disjointed and nervous and the Blackhawks took full advantaged to establish a dominant lead in the first quarter.

Making the most of the chances available to them, Bears’ Sharleen Honey and Ellen Fraser emerged as leading scorers for their side but Blackhawks were always in command.

Bears coach Jacob Robinson said: “In the opening game our girls faced an exceptionally well-drilled team made up of players who have played at a good level.

“Upon regrouping after the game, the girls came out firing against London Titans and executed superbly.

“It was a great to finish the season with a win and plenty to take forward into the off-season and work towards next season.

“Overall I couldn’t be happier with the girls’ effort this weekend.”

The Bears are next in action when the 2nds travel to Norwich Lowriders on April 29.
