Best performance of the season from Arthur Sissis but the Tigers would have won with their full squad. Guest for Jason only scored 5 and rider replacement for Josh, who normally goes well at the Media Prima, just 2 points.
From the Redcar website;
Redcar 'SG Petch' Bears again narrowly missed out on a home win the Premier League, securing a creditable 45-45 draw against high flying Sheffield Tigers at the Media Prima
Arena on Friday night.
Sheffield started the better of the two side, and soon opened up a 6 point lead thanks to heat wins from Simon Stead and Nathan Greaves. The Bears fought back however, and by the heat 10 interval the scores were level. A David Bellego inspired 4-2 gave the Bears a 2 point lead, although a 4-2 for Sheffield in the penultimate heat left the scores level going into the decider.
The on form Bellego took the lead coming out of turn two but, unfortunately for the Bears, captain Lasse Bjerre could not find a way past Stead and the impressive Kyle Howarth and the Bears had to settle for a draw.
It was an entertaining meeting throughout, with debutant Tobias Busch scoring a very creditable 5+1 and indeed earning the sponsors man of the meeting. He showed great speed especially in his last two rides to come from behind and score points.
Flying Frenchman David Bellego kept his excellent form going with 12+1, with Lasse Bjerre scoring a solid 10 and Hugh Skidmore chipping in with 9.
A special mention for Kyle Howarth, who pulled off a magnificent ride in heat 13 to come from last to first round the boards.
