Elite League: Birmingham Brummies 37 Lakeside Hammers 56

Lakeside Hammers picked up a welcome four points in their first away Elite League fixture of the season with an impressive all-round performance

After two shared heats to start the meeting, with Adam Ellis excelling in the second, Lakeside got the ball rolling with the first of four heat maximums.

Skipper Davey Watt and Lewis Bridger saw off Ben Barker and Edward Kennett, who fell when pressing Bridger for second.

Daniel Nermark gated and won heat four, before Danish sensation Mikkel Bech and Watt combined to good effect as the Hammers moved 19-11 ahead.

Gating proved to be the difference, and Peter Karlsson did just that in heat six for a shared heat.

Paul Starke suffered an engine failure in heat seven and after an initial challenge from Skornicki, Bech secured his second win of the night and a 4-2 advantage for the visitors.

Watt and Lawson were first out of the gate in heat eight moved the Hammers 31-17 ahead, and Ellis again showed his early promise with another win in heat nine for a shared heat.

Skornicki took the black and white helmet for a tactical ride in 10 and it worked with the Brummies number two getting the better of Watt who was held up by Danny King.

A late comeback looked on the cards when Barker managed to hold off Bech, with Karlsson off the pace at the back.

But the Hammers had a 4-2 of their own when Lawson and Ellis both gated, though the latter was passed by Skornicki.

And the visitors effectively sealed the win on the night with a maximum in heat 13 from Karlsson and Bridger.

Nermark was excluded from the penultimate heat and though Starke gated, Bech proved to be too strong, and Ellis followed suit for a maximum.

Skornicki ended up separating Watt and Lawson in the final heat, but the job had been done and the Hammers came away with a four-point victory.

Lakeside are back in action on Friday when they host Leicester Lions at the Raceway.

Birmingham Brummies 37: Danny King 2 (from 4 rides), Adam Skornicki 13 (5), Ben Barker 9 (5), Daniel Nermark 4+1 (4), Edward Kennett 2 (4), Simon Lambert 2+2 (4), Paul Starke 5 (4).

Lakeside Hammers 56: Peter Karlsson 6+2 (4), Richard Lawson 10+1 (5), Davey Watt 13+1 (5), Mikkel Bech 11 (4), Lewis Bridger 5+1 (4), Ben Morley 1 (3), Adam Ellis 10+2 (5)
