Sunday Sun - - Basketball -

BER­WICK Ban­dits beat Sh­effield Tigers 50-40 last night to se­cure their sixth home win on the trot.

A su­perb match saw some ex­cel­lent first bends and pass­ing in the open­ing heats, es­pe­cially the fifth with el­bows fly­ing be­tween Kevin Doolan, Dany Gapp­maier and Steve Wor­rall – the Sh­effield guest end­ing up at the rear of the sec­ond home 5-1, the first in heat two from Ash­ley Mor­ris and Al­fie Bowtell.

Heats one and four’s win­ners, Ryan Dou­glas and Kyle Howarth met in the sixth; the Sh­effield man shot to the front with Gap­pa­maier tak­ing a good sec­ond over Dou­glas in the night’s fourth shared heat tak­ing the score to 22-14.

Heat seven was won well by Lasse Bjerre but Bowtell rode a bril­liant three laps to hold Josh Bates at the back un­til the lat­ter dipped hard un­der the Ban­dit guest to take third in a Sh­effield 2-4.

Heat eight looked to be set for an away max­i­mum but Gra­versen, out in front, blew a mo­tor and ground to a halt turn­ing it into a 3-3.

Doolan won heat nine af­ter a bat­tle with Howarth and Gapp­maier who took third in a Ban­dit’s 4-2.

Heat 14’s 5-1 sealed the deal to fin­ish a su­perb Ban­dits dis­play.
