Wildcats win the bonus point 97-89

It was a damp start at the Wessex Stadium tonight as the Wildcats returned to competitive speedway with their first home match of the Conference Shield. They didnít let the weather dampen their spirits though as they convincingly beat the Crusaders and took the bonus point after losing to them at the Old Gun Site back in early August.

Heat leaders David Mason and Jordan Frampton lead the way, both scoring maximums, but there were also some very impressive rides from the rest of the team. Terry Day coming in at reserve took the chequered flag twice, as did Gordon Meakins.

Martin Williams quickly found his way back round a speedway track after a third in his first ride and an unlucky retirement in his second after his bike failed, he went on to win his last two outings.

The meeting started on an even footing with the spoils of three of the first four heats shared. Heat five saw the Crusaders take the first five - one of the night and overhaul the Wildcats. By the end of heat seven it was all square again but it was all about to go wrong for the Crusaders.

The first running of heat eight saw Aaron Baseby excluded after he fell on turn two of lap one after being passed up the inside by George Piper. The re-run of the race was no better for Sittingbourne as Gary Cottham lifted coming out of turn four sending him straight towards the fence and causing him to fall in a nasty looking crash as he crossed the line to start lap three. Cottham was soon back up on his feet but the damage was done as far as Sittingbourne were concerned with the Wildcats collecting a five point heat advantage.

George Piper took his second paid win of the night in heat ten after gating third he repeated his charge up the inside coming out of turn two to pass Dean Garrod. The Wildcats were on a roll now taking heat advantages in three of the remaining five heats. Both Mason and Frampton received the bumps from jubilant team mates after repeating their five - one result from heat thirteen in heat fifteen.
