Super Witches through to KO Cup final

Edinburgh 52 Ipswich 37. Agg 87-92

IPSWICH ‘Sackers’ Witches are through to the KO Cup final after a battling performance in Scotland on Friday night.

The visitors started poorly with a 5-1 maximum against them in heat one, but soon levelled the scores on the night in the next race.

From that point on the Witches held their nerve, despite the unbeaten efforts of Edinburgh’s Craig Cook and Theo Pijper.

And while falls for Taylor Poole, Mat Tresarrieu and Rohan Tungate didn’t help matters, the Foxhall side held their nerve to the end.
