Brummies just edged out in Shield

Birmingham Brummies
Brummies missed out after a heat 13 crash involving Piszcz and Watson

Birmingham Brummies suffered a heart-breaking two-point aggregate defeat to Berwick Bandits in the quarter-final of the Young Shield.

Defending an eight-point advantage from the home leg, the Brummies fell to a 50-40 loss in Cumbria.

The key was a crash in heat 13 involving Birmingham duo Tomasz Piszcz and Craig Watson, the re-run seeing Berwick tie the aggregate scores.

A victory for Brummies skipper Jason Lyons in the final heat was not enough.

Lyons led all scoring with 14 points, Piszcz and Watson adding 11 apiece for Birmingham.
