Winning BSN Series start for Scunthorpe Scorpions against Redcar Bears – Rundown & Scores

JAKE Allen and Nathan Ablitt took the honours as Scunthorpe opened their season with a 52-38 win over Redcar in the BSN Series.

Aussie star Allen top-scored with 13+1, dropping his only point of the meeting to the Bears’ Charles Wright in the final race, whilst reserve Ablitt was very impressive with 12 from five rides.

The Scorpions won the meeting despite losing Michael Palm Toft due to an early spill when he looped out of the gate in Heat 3, whilst Wright was fortunate to escape injury when he collected the fallen Kyle Howarth in Heat 13, before resuming to total 16 points.

Scunthorpe manager David Howe said: “I would have preferred an easier meeting tactical-wise for my first one as a team manager, rather than having Tofty withdrawing.

“But I’m very happy, and it’s what I expected from the boys.”

Redcar boss Gavin Parr said: “I think they’ve all had decent races and bad races, and gate 4 was so much better than everywhere else. But Scunthorpe have just been the better side on the night without doubt.”
