STARS gritty Aussie Ty Proctor admitted it was a “massive” win as they outgunned Belle Vue in another thriller.

For the second time in 72 hours, King’s Lynn edged out their Manchester Play-Off rivals in a classic with a 49-41 win at the Adrian Flux Arena last night.

It took another last heat heroic maximum from top two Niels-Kristian Iversen and Robert Lambert to secure all the points and keep up the Stars push for Premiership glory.

Proctor admitted: “We expected it to be hard we had to dig deep to get the win. We were solid throughout and all the boys delivered.

“Max Fricke was awesome all night and we just had to keep edging ahead and we just did enough. Every win is vital at this stage of the season. We can’t afford any slip-ups but the last two results against Belle Vue are massive.”

The Aces showed they were up for revenge right from the off with Craig Cook taking Heat 1 and Robert Lambert surprisingly stranded at the back.

However the home side gradually chipped away to grab a decent advantage and went six-up after Lambo’s first win in Heat 10.

But, just as the Stars did in Manchester on Monday night, Belle Vue threw in the big guns and it paid off with the excellent Max Fricke teaming up with Cook to grab a maximum and right back into the contest.

Only two points remained the lead until a vital Heat 14 4-2 when Thomas Jorgensen passed Mark Riss the open up a crucial four-point lead going into the huge decider.

Once again the powerhouse pairing of Lambert and Iversen delivered in some style. They produced a big 5-1 over the previously unbeaten Fricke to secure a massive home win and leave Play-Off-seeking rivals Belle Vue with no points at all.

KING’S LYNN 49: Niels-Kristian Iversen 11+1, Thomas Jorgensen 8+2, Erik Riss 8, Robert Lambert 7+3, Michael Palm Toft 7+2, Ty Proctor 7, Simon Lambert 1.

BELLE VUE 41: Max Fricke 16, Craig Cook 8+1, Dan Bewley 8, Mark Riss 6, Steve Worrall 2, Rohan Tungate 1+1, Damian Drozdz 0.
