Comets Just Pipped in Last Heat Decider At Sheffield
Thu 18 Apr 2013 by Press Office
Sheffield Tigers 47 Workington Comets 46 - Premier League
The Sheffield Tigers had to throw everything at the Comets to just pip them to a win at Owlerton tonight

In a fantastic speedway meeting the Comets were unable to hold onto their 14 point lead (after 5 heats) and lost by a single point after a 5-1 to the Tigers in the last heat.

Sheffield had to use 2 tactical rides to ensure they didn't lose their first home Premier League meeting of the season as the Comets were rampant in the opening 5 heats rattling off three heat maximums and a heat advantage.

All the Comets had either a win or a paid win and only the brilliance of ex Comet Simon Stead rescued the Tigers from what would have been a disastrous start to their Premier League campaign.
