Workington Comets v Newcastle Diamonds
Saturday 9th September 2017, 13:51 UK
JEFF KING
The Newcastle Sapphire Engineering Diamonds produced a superb all-round team effort to take a well deserved draw at Workington.
 

All The Diamonds contributed crucial points as their improved away performances of the recent few weeks continued enabling them to take two Championship points from a thrilling encounter at Derwent Park.

The individual glory may well have gone to Guest Chris Harris and Stevie Worrall in particular for their fabulous 5 - 1 in Heat 13 over Craig Cook that got them back level with two races to go.

Skipper Ludvig Lindgren then came up with his best ride of the night to win Heat 14 leaving the teams level at 42 - 42 going in to the last heat decider. With Harris and Worrall in that final race, Newcastle hoped for a repeat of the race that had taken place two heats earlier.

Harris made a fabulous gate and was away and clear but terrific team-riding by Cook and Ty Proctor somehow kept Worrall at the back meaning the scores were level on the night after 15 pulsating heats of speedway.

This was a terrific effort from all The Diamonds who were never ahead in the meeting. Falling behind after a Heat 3 maximum for The Comets by Matt Williamson and Proctor, they were still those four points down going in to that heat 13.

That's when Harris and Worrall struck and set up a thrilling finale to a fine meeting that neither side deserved to lose and in the end didn't.

Newcastle : Chris Harris 11 + 1 (5), Steve Worrall 11 (5), Ashley Morris 6 + 3 (4), Ludvig Lindgren 6 + 1 (4), Stuart Robson 6 + 1 (4), Ben Hopwood 3 + 1 (4), Alfie Bowtell 2 + 1 (4
