Plymouth Devils progress to cup semi-finals for first time

Plymouth Devils

Plymouth Devils are through to their first ever Premier League Knockout Cup semi-final after a 94-86 aggregate win over Peterborough.

After a 46-44 loss away to the Panthers last week, Plymouth secured a 50-40 win at the St Boniface arena to progress.

Ben Barker (15) scored a maximum for the Devils and was well supported by team mates Rasmus Jensen (12+2) and Sam Simota (13).

Plymouth are yet to discover their semi-final opponents.

After a topsy-turvy opening five races in which the lead changed hands three times Plymouth opened up a four-point cushion courtesy of Barker and Kyle Newman.

The next four heats were drawn before the Panthers closed the gap to two-points on the night and level on aggregate in heat 11 after Ales Dryml and Lewis Blackbird combined for a 4-2.

But 5-1 heat maximums in races 13 and 14 were enough to see Plymouth through.
