The Paul Chapman and Sons Lions were on the receiving end of a 58 points to 32 result at Poole last night. The Pirates set off at a blistering pace that left Leicester reeling against the champions who were twenty-six points ahead without reply after eight heats.
There were brief moments that went Leicester’s way namely a maximum score from Aaron Summers and Szymon Wozniak, the team’s first advantage in Heat 10; a battling four laps with Kyle Newman and Bjarne Pedersen from Josh Auty which was rewarded with three points and a brace of wins for Nicolai Klindt in the embers of the night.
Poole 58 points: Chris Holder 10+2, Adam Ellis 11+1, Krzysztof Buczkowski 7+2, Brady Kurtz 12+1, Hans Andersen 7, Bjarne Pedersen 6 and Kyle Newman 5+3
Leicester 32 points: Rider Replacement for Patrick Hougaard, Aaron Summers 7, Nicolai Klindt 8, Paul Starke 5, Szymon Wozniak 5+1, Michael Palm Toft 1 and Josh Auty 6+2
