Report

MILDENHALL built up a 12-point lead from the first leg of their NDL KO Cup semi-final with Kent at West Row.

The Fen Tigers won 51-39 on their own circuit after a strong run in the second half of the meeting – although a 4-2 to the Royals in Heat 15 kept things interesting at 51-39.

Jason Edwards top-scored for the home side with 12, with Sam Bebee impressing on 11+1 as he was unbeaten until the last race, whilst Ben Morley (11) and Alfie Bowtell (10) led the way for the visitors.

Mildenhall co-boss Jason Gardner said: “We took the opportunity after Heat 8 to gather together and reflect on the meeting up to that stage and discuss what we needed to do to achieve our goal.

“I always felt we needed a 12 to 14 points advantage to take to Iwade next week and that’s what we got in the end.

“All in all, the conclusion is that we were again very solid but yes, with room for improvement too, and that’s a good position to be in so early into the new campaign.

“We now need to go again next weekend, show the same points scoring consistency and get ourselves into that Cup Final.”
