Report

SCUNTHORPE are up to third place in the Cab Direct Championship after defeating Edinburgh 51-39 at the Eddie Wright Raceway.

Ryan Douglas roared to a 15-point maximum for a solid-scoring home team, who put the match virtually beyond the Monarchs in the opening seven races.

There were three 5-1s to the Scorpions in that period as they led 29-13, before the visitors fought back strongly to cut the gap to six at one stage.

Reserve Lasse Fredriksen scored 13+3 from seven rides and Josh Pickering added 10, but the home side collected match victory and the aggregate point.

Monarchs boss John Campbell said: “It’s always a challenge for us at Scunthorpe as it is such a specialist track with so many racing lines. The Scorpions got off to a strong start while we were working out the set-up and the lines.

“Lasse put in an impressive performance and fully merited his heat 15 appearance. Scunthorpe have been doing exceptionally well this season on their own track, but we will take the positives from tonight as we move onto Oxford on Wednesday.”
