Ipswich Witches end with a whimper
IPSWICH ‘Sackers’ Witches’ disappointing campaign ended in despair on Sunday evening as they were comprehensively beaten by Newcastle in the second leg of the KO Cup final.
Trailing 48-42 after a tough evening at Foxhall 24 hours earlier, the Witches struggled to get to grips with the wet conditions in Newcastle, as they had on a heavily-dusted home track the night before.
On the night they were soundly beaten 58-32, with Leigh Lanham and Dakota North top-scoring with nine points.
“There was only going to be one winner tonight,” said team manager Pete Simmons.
“The track was wet but Newcastle were up for it from the first race, whereas we tend to be a bit more tentative in those situations.
He added: “We are already team-building for next season and maybe there are three or four lads in the team already that will come back and do better for us next season.
“But until the contracts are signed, nothing is concrete.”
