King Ken­neth rules again with an­other scorch­ing record at Al­wal­ton

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

KEN­NETH Bjerre led Pan­thers back into the Elite League play­off places last night with an­other scorch­ing track record-break­ing show­ing – but then ad­mit­ted noth­ing less than a top-two fin­ish will do for him.

The city side sit fourth af­ter a come-from-be­hind 50-39 tri­umph over Ip­swich in an Al­wal­ton thriller which was ig­nited by Bjerre’s fastest-ever per­for­mance of 58.8 sec­onds in the opener.

De­mand­ing Dane Bjerre, who low­ered his own record set lit­tle over a fort­night ear­lier, and re­serve ace Krzysztof Buczkowski both de­liv­ered paid 17-point dis­plays with new re­cruits Rory Sch­lein and Mat Tre­sar­rieu also chip­ping in with cru­cial con­tri­bu­tions.

Stand-in cap­tain Bjerre said: “I didn’t re­alise how fast it was the last time I set the track record, but last night I knew it was re­ally quick. I made one lit­tle mis­take so I still think it is pos­si­ble to go a lit­tle bit bet­ter still.

“It was a very hard night and Ip­swich put up a re­ally big fight, but we got all three points in the end and that is a must at home.

“We are back in the play-off places now but we have to set our­selves the tar­get of fin­ish­ing in the top two. That is where I think we should be.”

Pan­thers are un­beaten on their own shale this term and can im­prove their prospects fur­ther when tak­ing on Lake­side at the Show­ground on Thurs­day.
