Hawks v E London & Kesgrave
The Hawks rounded off a busy nine days with home matches against Kesgrave and East London. The Londoners were down on riders and even with gust riders failed to beat the Hawks’ B team for whom Liam Webster was unbeaten. A very competitive Division 1 match followed with the Hawks and Kesgrave evenly matched. Hethersett got in front in heat 3 and opened up a three-point lead by heat 12. Then a double pass by the Brinkhoff brothers put the visitors in front. Leigh Cossey and Dan Butler regained the lead for the Hawks then Webster engineered a 7-3 win with Paul Delaiche to set up a team victory. Hethersett’s trump card was a cameo return by former Norfolk Champion Dave Martin.
The B team match was less tense as the unbeaten League leaders from Kesgrave coasted to a victory with Wells and Webster doing their best to contain them.
