Comets Due On Thursday Night
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches will be aiming to maintain Brian Messenger's unbeaten record (since taking over as team manager) when they welcome the Workington 'Thomas Armstrong' Comets to Foxhall this week. The Northern side have only completed eleven league fixtures so far due to rainoffs, etc. which partly explains their position in the League table. They have a strong looking lineup and as in previous years will no doubt provide a tough test for the home side and should definitely not be underestimated.
Ipswich will line up as usual while Workington have today signed Joe Jacobs in place of the injured Ashley Morris. They are also using a NL guest, James Sargeant, in place of their other injured reserve Simon Lambert.
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches continued their excellent run of form with a second away win in a week, this time against their other local rivals the Peterborough Panthers. They didn't quite manage the full four points but the three gained from this victory keeps their playoff hopes alive.
Rohan Tungate top scored for Ipswich on 10 points with Richie Worrall close behind on 9+1. Lasse Bjerre topped the Panthers scoresheet on 11+1.
Heat one saw Richie Worrall smash the East of England PL track record as he & Ritchie Hawkins started in the best possible way for Ipswich with a 5-1. Reserves Adam Ellis & Cameron Heeps increased the Witches lead to six after a 4-2 in heat two. Peterborough then settled down and had managed to pull back level after heat seven. This was partly gifted to them by Cameron Heeps falling in heat six while on a 5-1 with his partner Rohan Tungate; he was subsequently disqualified and in the re-run Peterborough scored a 4-2 plus Gino Manzares then fell at the start of heat seven, also getting disqualified.
