Witches grab a point thanks to Heeps and Barker

Redcar Bears 47 Ipswich Witches 45

Ipswich ‘Sackers’ Witches picked up a Premier League point after a narrow two-point victory at Redcar.

However, only Ben Barker and Cameron Heeps did themselves any real justice, with the Witches having far too many last places. Indeed only a final heat 5-1 maximum to Ipswich made the score look closer than it really was.

“In the end we have picked up a point and after being 10 points down, I can’t be too unhappy with that,” said Witches team boss Pete Simmons.

“Cameron Heeps was simply superb, taking the racing to Redcar.”
