BUXTON 42 STORM 46
Sunday August 07, 2016
COVENTRY Storm earned their third win of the season with a 46-42 triumph at Buxton on Sunday.
A faultless 15-point maximum from Liam Carr led the City Gearboxes side to their first victory since May 7.
It was a battling performance from the Storm – and team manager Laurence Rogers was delighted to end their tough run of eight successive defeats.
Yet he was once again left counting the cost of their success as Dan Greenwood suffered a broken collarbone in an awkward spill on the opening bend of heat 11.
Said Rogers: “It was a very good result, but once again we’ve got a mix of good news and bad news with Dan Greenwood breaking his collarbone.
“It was still nice to get a win away from home, and the boys showed a lot of spirit to come out on top.
“Liam Carr was tremendous, scoring a 15-point maximum, and Jamie Halder also did a great job on his first meeting back from injury.”
Carr received solid support from Mitchell Davey, who bagged 11 points, whilst Jamie Halder also impressed with paid nine on his return from a broken arm.
With Conor Dwyer, Ryan Terry-Daley and Callum Walker also chipping in with useful contributions, it was a well-deserved win for the City Gearboxes Storm.
They will be back in action as they face a tough trip to top of the table Birmingham on Wednesday (7.30) before hosting the National League Fours at Brandon next Sunday, August 14 (2.30).
BUXTON 42: Shelby Rutherford 10+3, Ellis Perks 10, Ryan Blacklock 8, Tony Atkin 8, David Wallinger 4, Lee Geary 2+1 (No.8), Ryan Burton 0, David Speight R/R.
STORM 46: Liam Carr 15, Mitchell Davey 11, Jamie Halder 7+2, Conor Dwyer 5+1, Callum Walker 5, Ryan Terry-Daley 3+2, Dan Greenwood 0.
