WARWICKSHIRE Bears 2nds’ extended their winning streak to four games following a 44-40 victory over Plymouth Storm in the BWBL Third Division S&W on Sunday.

Bears were up against the only team that had beaten them in both fixtures last season, so they knew they were in for tough game from the tip-off.

The first quarter was a close affair with both teams’ defence coming out on top and keeping the score low.

The second quarter was another tight affair with no team able to establish dominance, the visitors holding a slender 19-18 lead at half-time.
