Meeting Result - Plymouth 45 v Warriors 45 (NT)


The Warriors brought their busy week of speedway action to a tense climax as they drew their National Trophy fixture at Plymouth in a final race showdown thanks again to the dynamic duo of Georgie Wood and Ben Morley.

In dry and dusty conditions, all the Warriors battled hard to keep the scores close and heading into heat thirteen the visitors were only four points in arrears as Wood and Morley came to tapes. At the first attempt to run the race former Warrior Nathan Stoneman, now racing for Plymouth, clipped Morley and earned a disqualification. In the re-run another former Warrior at Plymouth, Ben Wilson, managed to slide between the Warriors but Morley found a beautiful line to pass Wilson and join Wood for maximum points to level the scores at 39-39 with two races remaining.
