Witches Aiming To Keep On Winning...
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches welcome the 'Cases' Somerset Rebels to Foxhall on Thursday night for their second & final home playoff fixture. This is a 'must win' for Ipswich and they need to take the maximum three points available to keep them in the hunt for a chance to compete in the playoff final. Ipswich co-promoter, Chris Louis, wants his team to hit Somerset hard from the start and keep the pressure for all 15 heats to ensure they return home empty-handed as they have done on three previous occasions this season when they lost by twelve, forty & twenty two points respectively.
Somerset are still missing Brady Kurtz (broken wrist) and will use rider replacement to cover his rides with all riders apart from Olly Allen eligible to take one. Ipswich are at full strength with one slight change to the riding order due to the new October averages; Cameron Heeps swaps places with Ritchie Hawkins.
This week's meeting is sponsored by Seven.
Ipswich Through To KOC Final
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches lost by four points at Plymouth last night but their huge forty point lead from the first leg ensured their progression through to the Knock Out Cup Final with an aggregate score of 108-72. Their opponents are yet to be decided...
Morten Risager was top Witch on 14 points and Plymouth reserve Sam Simota topped their scorecard on 13+1.
Ipswich had secured the win as early as heat six with the scoreline between the two clubs remaining close for most of the meeting. Plymouth did stretch out an eight point lead after heat thirteen but Ipswich hit back with a 5-1 in heat fifteen to finish their night on a high.
