BELLE VUE 56 BRUMMIES 39

Monday June 30, 2014
EMOTIONS were running high around the terraces at Belle Vue as Birmingham made one last valiant stand in the face of their almost certain demise with a 56-39 defeat last night.

The uncertainty that has plagued the club over the last couple of weeks looks to be finally coming to a conclusion, one which will see the Midlands outfit permanently erased from the 2014 Elite League.

But even if the riders could sense the end was near, they certainly didn't show it; they fought hard for every point.

The Aces were led by newly appointed skipper Scott Nicholls and soon asserted their dominance over the meeting and stretch their lead to 22-8 after just 5 heats.

In an effort to even things out, Brummies duo Ben Barker and Danny King delivered two hard-fought tactical rides to bring the scores up to 39-26 by Heat 10; but in the end it was to no avail, and the home side powered ahead to take the win.

BELLE VUE 56: Craig Cook 11+2, Charles Wright 10+2, Matej Zagar 10+1, Richie Worrall 8, Scott Nicholls 7+1, Michael Palm Toft 6, Lee Payne 4+2.

BIRMINGHAM 39: Ben Barker 13, Nico Covatti 10+1, Danny King 8+1, Paul Starke 6, Jason Garrity 2, Simon Lambert 0, Bartosz Zmarzlik R/R.
