Brilliant Witches get their season back on track

Berwick 34 Ipswich 56 Agg 76-104

IPSWICH ‘Sackers’ Witches completed a brilliant 48 hours with a second win on the road.

But while the victory at Plymouth on Friday night meant little as Ipswich had already reached the League Cup semi-finals, this win at Berwick to take the team through to the KO Cup semi-finals, was stunning.

Defending just a six-point lead, the Witches answered all their critics as they blew away the opposition in the early stages to lead 20-10 after 5 races to almost have the tie sewn up.

But they didn’t let up and, led by Rohan Tungate (15) and brilliant reserves Mat Tresarrieu (11) and Cameron Heeps (7+2), the Witches were simply superb.

“Don’t think Berwick were rubbish, because they weren’t,” said Witches team manager Pete Simmons.

“Quite simply, we were better, we were brilliant.
