The Wildcats played host to potential Conference League Champions, Scunthorpe tonight at the Wessex stadium. The Scorpions were blisteringly fast out of the gate and even with the use of tactical rides the Wildcats succumbed 41 – 52 on the night.

Richie Dennis was the top man for the Scorpions scoring a six heat maximum, the only real challenge to his dominance came in heat one from Mason who gave chase for the full four laps pushing him very hard in a battle that saw the Wildcats skipper just nosing ahead on a couple of occasions before Dennis took the place back. A last lap blast out of turn four nearly worked for Mason who crossed the line just a fraction of a bikes length behind.

The Scorpions scored heat advantages in both heats two and three before the Wildcats hit back in heat four scoring a five – one. Scunthorpe returned the favour in heat five before Mason took a tapes to flag victory in the sixth.

Heat seven was stopped after Tai Woffinden fell going into turn one on the last lap, Adam Filmer had to lay his bike down, three points going to each team from the awarded heat. Heats eight, nine and ten were all won from the gate.

Richie Dennis made a big blast round the outside of turns one and two coming off the outside in heat eleven followed by the very impressive Byron Bekker. He didn’t have it all his own way though as Weymouth’s Jordan Frampton put on a determined challenge to try to take second.

Heat twelve saw Johnson come in for the Wildcats as Golden Double Tactical Substitute. Unfortunately Day looped coming off the gate and impeded Johnson in his charge to turn one from 15m back. Mason also took a tactical ride in heat thirteen, managing to claim a two point heat advantage with partner Frampton after the unlucky Tillman fell on lap two.

Benji Compton was excluded from heat fourteen following a very tight third bend on lap two where he hit a bump that forced his bike up the inside into Chris Johnson. The re-run had just two starters as Filmer had already fallen when the race was stopped. Johnson took the victory in the re-run with two points to Bekker confirming Scunthorpe’s win on the night.
