Bears in thrilling game against United Arab Emirates
THE Warwickshire Bears secured a superb 58-50 victory over the United Arab Emirates last week.

The friendly match was end to end, but the Bears held a narrow 27-22 lead at half-time.
Warwickshire pulled away and led 47-32 after the third. UAE fought their way back and clawed back the deficit, but the damage was already done.
“I’m so proud of the team today,” said Bears’ coach, Tom Masterson.
“To win a game against an international team is a major achievement for them and just shows how much potential there is in the club. Even our bench were awesome today and helped us to the final buzzer.”
