Mildenhall 59 Rye House 31

MILDENHALL Fen Tigers roared back to the top of the National League with an emphatic win over arch rivals Rye House.

It was a welcome return to form for Mark Thompson as he reeled off three heat wins in an impressive 12+2 point haul only being beaten once by an opposing rider it was also pleasing to see David Mason among the point contributing 11+1

The match started of with a couple of drawn heats but then the Fen Tigers hit the front with a 5 1 from Thompson and the again impressive Joe Jacobs and never looked back from there.

There was again good team riding on display with the experienced riders Thompson, Mason and Barrie Evans helping out and sheparding home the younger riders in their heats respectively.
