Walsall hold firm against Mighty Moseley
The Bears continue their undefeated start to the season with two wins apiece against a strong Moseley squad.
After ringing me two weeks in advance to tell me he had a squad of 40 to "select" from I knew the Moseley coach and his teams were going to give the Under 8 Bears their toughest challenge yet. He eventually brought along an A and a B side for the battling Bears to play. The Polars (Alfie, Will, Isaac, Govind, Reuben, Thane, Kai, Oscar, Luke and Freddie) played very well first up against Moseley B winning 10-8 with some exceptionally strong defence being the difference. Their second game against the A side proved too tough though as they lost 8-5 despite some good performances all round especially from skipper Will Jones. The Grizzlies (Alex, Henry, Ewan, Dontae, Jack, Jean-Nick, Finlay, Dominic, Elliot) faced the Moseley A side first and battled well but unfortunately lost 11-6. In their second game however they upped their defence with new player Elliot pushing up fantastically and senior players Jean-Nick and Finlay organising the line well to fight to a 7-6 win! Well done bears! A great set of results against a very strong side. #Grrrr
