Immediately after the Warriors National Trophy fixture against Plymouth the Wizards took to the tiny 213 metre Devon bowl tracking two Island based riders and in a close encounter just dipped out to a Falcons side whose riders all had National League experience.
Every Wizard rode with determination and commitment. James Luckman tasted the shale in one heat but bounced back, stand in skipper got better and better, Morgan Williams did himself proud and Chris Watts took a nasty fall in heat six but was brave in the re-run to secure a second place.
Next up is the return fixture on Tuesday with all the riders really keen to reverse the result from tonight.
Falcons: Macauley Leek DNR, Saul Bulley 6, James Chattin 9, Adam Sheppard 5+1.
Wizards: Chris Watts 7, Morgan Williams 2+1, Ben Ilsley 5+1, James Luckman 2+1.
