Ipswich Witches 58 Workington Comets 35 (Premier League)
The Comets suffered yet another disappointing defeat on the road at Foxhall Heath this evening when they went down 58-35 to the Ipswich Witches.
The Comets only provided four race winners - three for Ricky Wells, and one for Kyle Howarth when on a Tactical Ride in Heat 9 (see above photo) when he led Gino Manzares home.
That TR victory for Kyle reduced the Comets deficit to just 7 points with six races to go as the Witches led 32-25.
However, any hopes of a Workington comeback were quickly dashed as the Witches then raced to five successive 5-1's over the Comets to secure the league points as they led 57-30 with only the nominated heat remaining.
The Comets raced to a consolation 5-1 in an awarded Heat 15 after Cameron Heeps fell on lap three with the Comets pairing of Ricky Wells and Kyle Howarth already on a 5-1, making the final score Ipswich 58 Workington 35.
