Despite a battling performance, the Redcar 'Ecco Finishing Supplies' Bears fell to a 48-42 defeat at home to Peterborough on Thursday night. 

Dimitri Berge was the star for the Bears, with the flying Frenchman notching 4 heat wins on his way to a 12 point total. There were also battling performances from the Bears two guests, with Aaron Summers scoring 10 and Josh Auty 7+2.

The Panthers were led excellently by Michael Palm Toft, who roared to a 17 point score, only beaten by Berge in heat 15. He received excellent support from Bradley Wilson Dean and reserve Tom Bacon, who both scored 9+2.

Bears co-promoter Jitendra Duffill admits his team was beaten by the better side on the night:

“Sometimes you just have to put your hands up and admit that you were beaten by a better team. No lack of effort on our part, there was plenty of fight in camp but ultimately we were beaten by a superb performance from Michael Palm Toft and the impressive Tom Bacon. Congratulations to Peterborough but hugely disappointing to lose at home again.”

The next action at Redcar is on Sunday 1st July, when the Bears host the Championship Four Team tournament.
