Skolars record gutsy win over Bears

7th September 2015

After two extremely competitive performances against York City Knights and North Wales Crusaders, the Skolars recorded their 5th win of the season against southern rivals, Coventry Bears 28-18 at the Butts Park Arena.

The Skolars lead at the break after tries from John Paxton, Dave Williams, and Billy Driver. But Tommy Connick could only convert one of three first-half tries as the Bears responded through Chris Barratt and Jack Morrison to trail 10-14 at the interval. Coventry’s Dan Price converting one of two.

The hosts momentarily lead 18-14 as Jamahl Hunte and Simon Phillips went over but Price didn’t add to their scoreline as Price couldn’t covert both opportunities.

The visitors made them pay as another Driver try, a Connick penalty, and a converted James Anthony score helped the Skolars secure an important late season victory in building momentum for 2016.
