Bandits Raid Prevented By Flying Witches
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches were in imperious form at Foxhall on Thursday night taking a 60-34 victory over the Berwick 'New Holland' Bandits. The visitors arrived with an impressive record of having won four of their six away meetings in the Premier League this season but went away with this now reading four from seven.
Morten Risager & Rohan Tungate were joint top scorers on 13+1 for Ipswich with all other team members scoring well and only two last places being recorded all meeting. Claus Vissing and Steen jensen topped the Bandits scorecard on eleven points apiece.
Ipswich again attacked from the start this week and had built up a twelve point lead after only six heats. Berwick reacted quickly to nominate Steen Jensen for a tactical ride in heat seven but Rohan Tungate roared from the gate to head him home and with Cameron Heeps passing Mat Wethers to finish third no points had been pulled back.
The Ipswich heat advantages continued to flow until heat eleven with their lead having been extended to twenty points. Berwick nominated Claus Vissing for their second & final tactical ride but he was also thwarted by Rohan Tungate. However his team mate finished third so they had managed to claw back two points. Morten Risager & Cameron Heeps then combined to deliver the killer blow for Ipswich in heat twelve securing the victory with a gate to flag maximum heat win.
Witches Need To Hold Off Bandits This Week
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches welcome the Berwick 'New Holland' Bandits to Foxhall on Thursday (31st July) for Premier League action. The visitors arrive with an impressive away record of four wins out of six so far this season so the home team will certainly all need to be at their best to secure three league points and keep their playoff hopes alive.
Ipswich are without their US star Gino Manzares as he will be riding for his country in the Speedway World Cup Raceoff at Bydgoszcz in Poland and rider replacement will be used to cover his rides. Berwick are at full strength.
The meeting is sponsored by Hawk Express Cabs.
Don't forget 'Kids Go Free' (all under 16s) for the summer holidays!
