Report

BERWICK finally ended their Glasgow hoodoo with a 48-42 win over the Tigers in their BSN Series opener on Saturday.

The Bandits had lost their last 13 matches against the Scottish side but held on for victory in an exciting clash which went down to a last heat decider.

A tactical substitute win for Chris Harris in the penultimate race helped reduce the gap to four points, but Berwick No.1 Lewis Kerr got the better of Harris for the third time in the meeting in Heat 15, with Rory Schlein adding third place ahead of Leon Flint.

Kerr scored 13+1 for the Bandits, dropping his only point to Flint in Heat 10, whilst Harris racked up 15 from six rides for the Tigers who were a six-rider outfit after reserve Lee Complin provided a non-negative result to an anti-doping test.

Harris said: “We battled hard but it wasn’t quite good enough on the night.

“There were promising signs. It was tough to lose our winning streak here but that was always going to happen one day I suppose.

“But there’s lots of potential. Young James Pearson had a couple of good rides and the same for Ace Pijper. There’s a few teething problems but we can iron them out before next week.”
