National League Mildenhall Fen Tigers 61 Stoke Potters 29 The Mildenhall Fen Tigers were merciless in their search for points in the West Row sunshine, and with a little fortune could have scored even more than their impressive 61 point haul this afternoon.
Heat one saw razor sharp gating from the Mildenhall pair of Luke Ruddick and Connor Mountain only for Mountain to suffer misfortune in second place as his cut-out came out. Heat two saw the first 5-1 of the afternoon from Danno Verge and Alex Spooner.
Heat three saw captain Jon Armstrong make one of his trademark Mildenhall passes on Tony Atkin to join the ultra quick Jordan Jenkins for another 5-1. With Danny Halsey looking smooth and stylish in heat four, the lead was already 10 points. Jenkins and Armstrong joined up again in heat five for another 5-1, before Ruddick and Mountain repeated the dose in heat six.
Halsey cruised to another impressive victory in heat seven, before the fast starting Ruddick won his third race of the afternoon, and with Verge securing third the Fen Tigers were 20 points ahead and the meeting basically over as a contest.
The Fen Tigers didn’t ease off and the Armstrong/Jenkins partnership were at it again in heat nine with another 5-1, the Fen Tigers captain showing his class by going wide on the final bend to allow his junior partner through to claim his third win in a row.

Captain Armstrong produced another sharp burst of speed in heat fifteen to get past Davey and go on to a paid 15 point maximum.
