King's Lynn Stars suffer defeat at Ipswich Witches




The King's Lynn Stars and Ipswich played out another Premiership drama at Foxhall - and it was the Witches who had the last word.

Nobody in the stadium can doubt Lynn deserved at least a point from another stunning meeting between these two great rivals, but Ipswich delivered the goods when it mattered most in the closing stages.

King’s Lynn boss Peter Schroeck was, however, left frustrated.

He said: “I try and be positive but I must say I’m disappointed by this result.

“We have to sort this out. I’m getting tired of people saying how we are in some great meetings but for me we need to focus on putting league points on the board. We will sort it and that’s all I’m saying.”

The Poultec Stars made a good start with a race winner from the first two races.

But back-to-back Witches’ heat advantages in races three and four put them 15-9 up.

Stars responded immediately with a 5-1 in Heat 5 as Robert Lambert and Michael Palm Toft came up trumps.

Both sides swapped 4-2 advantages which kept the scores close going into the interval - 31-29 to the Witches.

Ipswich extended their lead to four points with 4-2 in heat 11.

The Visitors responded with 4-2 in heat 13 to cut the deficit to two points as Craig Cook got the win while Lambert avoided a Witches sandwich to hold on for third ahead of Danny King at the back.

Stars were left up against it to secure at least a point after conceding a 5-1 in heat 14.

A Witches 4-2 in the final race meant the visitors returned to Norfolk with nothing after missing out on a losing point.

Ipswich Witches 49: Cameron Heeps 13+2, Richard Lawson 11+1, Chris Harris 7+1, Krystian Pieszczek 6+2, Danny King 6, Kyle Howarth 3+2, Edward Kennett 3.

King's Lynn Stars 41: Craig Cook 12, Lewis Kerr 12, Robert Lambert 9, Thomas Jorgensen 5, Michael Palm Toft 3+1, Ty Proctor 0, Simon Lambert 0.
