STARS STUN LEAGUE LEADERS

Monday June 24, 2019
KING’S Lynn got back to winning ways in emphatic style by brushing aside Premiership leaders Belle Vue 54-36.

Boss Peter Schroeck issued a pre-meeting rally-cry to his side after dropped points last week in the race for a top four spot and a shot at the league title.
And he said: “I’m proud of all the lads tonight, it was a great team effort.
“Belle Vue are a good side and we did the job - I told them no last places and we produced the goods.
“Our season starts now.”
Craig Cook haunted his former club with a brilliant 12+1 haul to inspire the Poultec Stars to all three points.
It was a solid start from the Stars with four straight 4-2 advantages and the Manchester men were unlikely to recover.
Belle Vue stopped the run of home victories as Max Fricke got past Thomas Jorgensen in Heat 5 for the win.
Former Stars man Kenneth Bjerre secured the Aces second win in Heat 6.
But the determined Stars hit back immediately with back-to-back 5-1s, extending their lead to 32-16 at the half-way stage.
Lewis Kerr first teamed up with Cook for a 5-1 in Heat 7 - and then joined Michael Palm Toft for a 5-1.
Belle Vue boss Mark Lemon opted to put Max Fricke in as a tactical substitute and it came up trumps as he partnered Bjerre to a 5-1.
Once again the Stars extended their lead to 38-22 in Heat 10 with Robert Lambert and Michael Palm Toft securing a 5-1.
In Heat 12 Ty Proctor and Kerr were on a 5-1 but Dan Bewley got past Kerr for second to limit them to a 4-2, 45-27.
And then Jørgensen and Simon Lambert put the home win beyond doubt with a 4-2 in Heat 14.
KING’S LYNN 54: Craig Cook 12+1, Lewis Kerr 9+1, Michael Palm Toft 8+1, Robert Lambert 7+1, Ty Proctor 7+1, Thomas Jorgensen 7, Simon Lambert 4+1.
BELLE VUE 36: Max Fricke 12+1, Kenneth Bjerre 10+1, Dan Bewley 8, Steve Worrall 3, Ricky Wells 2, Dimitri Berge 1, Jaimon Lidsey 0.
