Pan­thers ham­mered by in-form Ham­mers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

SPEED­WAY: Pan­thers suf­fered a heavy 59-37 de­feat at Elite League lead­ers Lake­side at the Arena Race­way last night.

Pan­thers had picked up at least a point on all of their pre­vi­ous trav­els this sea­son but it proved a dif­fer­ent story at Lake­side who had for­mer Al­wal­ton favourites Peter Karls­son and Lee Richard­son in fine form.

Pan­thers were with­out skip­per Ken­neth Bjerre due to tonight’s Czech Grand Prix but they could hardly blame his ab­sence as King’s Lynn num­ber one and Pan­thers as­set Niels Kris­tian Iversen proved an ex­cel­lent re­place­ment.

The Dane scored a tac­ti­cal ride­boosted 16 points with young gun Michael Jepsen Jensen the only other rider to im­press with 11+1.

That tally was also boosted by a vic­tory while wear­ing the black and white hel­met.

Jepser B Mon­berg, ex­pected to be a big as­set at re­serve, had a mis­er­able night and could muster just a sin­gle point while Rene Bach lived up to his name and was at the back in all of his races.
