Witches Bounce Back To Win At Plymouth
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches flew to the top of the Southern League Cup table after defeating the Plymouth 'Skillsgroup' Devils 49-41 tonight. They are now guaranteed a place in the semi finals on hat competi6ion
After the disappointment at Foxhall on Thursday night the Ipswich team regrouped and delivered the goods at the St Boniface Arena. It was extremely close early on and there was never more than four points between the two teams. Ipswich then dug deep and managed to increase their lead to six after a 4-2 in heat twelve. With heat thirteen shared Ipswich sealed the win in heat fourteen.
Witches Let Bandits Through
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches paid the ultimate penalty for a lack lustre display at Foxhall on Thursday night allowing the Berwick Bandits through to the next round of the Knock Out Cup.
Despite the usual double figure scores from number one Danny King & Nico Covatti the rest of the team didn't provide enough support to produce the desired result.
A fall in heat one from Gino Manzares resulted in Berwick gaining a two-point advantage with Ben Barker winning the re-run ahead of Danny King. The Ipswich reserves did make up for this with a 5-1 in heat two but this was to prove only one of only two maximum heat wins for the home team. After this the aggregate points gap between the two teams was never more than four points with Ipswich unable to build up any significant lead on the night.
Scottish Tigers Visiting This Week
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches will face the 'Allied' Glasgow Tigers in a Premier League fixture on Thursday.
They will need to continue the detemination and fighting spirit that produced two much better displays over the weekend as opposed to the first two PL meetings against Sheffield. Director of Speedway, Chris Louis, expects this meeting to be a very tough test for his team against a side that has been rebuilt over the winter. "They have strength from top to bottom including riders such as Nick Morris, Richard Lawson & Aaron Summers. If the lads thought last Monday was tough then think again, this one could be even worse!"
