Elite League: King’s Lynn Stars 51 Lakeside Hammers 39

There was no joy on the road for Lakeside Hammers as they went down to an 11-point defeat at King’s Lynn last night.

And it was home No.1 Niels Kristian-Iversen who proved to be the real thorn in the Hammers side with a five-ride maximum, though there was further promise for Lakeside reserve Adam Ellis, who top scored with a paid 12 points. But Ellis and Mikkel Bech aside, the Hammers struggled.

The visitors were benefitted by Nicklas Porsing’s retirement when in third in the opening heat to pick up a 3-3.

King’s Lynn gated on a 5-1 in the second through Lewis Rose and Lewis Kerr, before the former’s mistake initially saw Ellis and partner Ben Morley profit. However, Rose swept past Morley for a home 4-2

Lewis Bridger had an off night for the Hammers, retiring in the third heat as the hosts recorded a 5-1 to move 12-6 ahead.

The visitors hit back straight away through Richard Lawson and Ellis, though Kerr fell when leading.

Stars were on another 5-1 in the fifth heat only for Mikkel Bech and skipper Davey Watt to pass Kenneth Bjerre, but the Hammers levelled the scores with a 4-2. advantage in the next as Peter Karlsson took the chequered flag, with Bridger in third.

Things looked to be turning in the visitors favour when Ellis and Bech combined to good effect in heat seven for a maximum, and the Hammers led 23-19.

Watt and Lawson gated on another in heat eight before the latter was passed by Robert Lambert and Rory Schlein.

Two home maximums though put King’s Lynn in control once again as they moved into a 32-28 lead with five heats to go.

Bech stormed to a win in heat 11, though Karlsson retired on the opening lap as the Hammers couldn’t cut the gap.

However maximums continued to come in pairs for the home side and they had the meeting almost secured with two to go and leading 45-33.

Bech and Ellis though gave the Hammers hope going into the last with a maximum of their own in their bid to take a point away from the Norfolk Arena.

But those hopes went with yet another home 5-1 as Iversen ended the night unbeaten with another fine win, though all the action was behind as Bech and Schlein tussled for second and third, with the latter just edging it in the end.

King’s Lynn Stars 51: Niels Kristian-Iversen 15 (from five rides), Nicklas Porsing 4+2 (4), Rory Schlein 9+3 (5), Robert Lambert 4 (4), Kenneth Bjerre 6+2 (4), Lewis Kerr 7 (4), Lewis Rose 6+1 (4)

Lakeside Hammers 39: Peter Karlsson 6 (5), Richard Lawson 5+1 (4), Davey Watt 6+1 (4), Mikkel Bech 10+2 (5), Lewis Bridger 1 (3), Ben Morley 0 (3), Adam Ellis 11+1 (5)
