Witches play-off hopes over after defeat in Cumbria

Workington 50 Ipswich 40

Ipswich Witches hopes of progressing to the play-off final were put to bed at Workington on Saturday night.

The Comets, who came to Foxhall on Thursday and pulled off a fine victory, were in no mood to sacrifice the advantage they had grabbed that night.

Ipswich needed a win to keep their hopes alive but despite the efforts of reserve Ritchie Hawkins, who notched a season’s best 13+2 points, they came up short.

The Suffolk side were not helped by a second race fall for Rohan Tungate which saw him withdraw from the meeting.
