Plymouth Devils end losing streak with Rye House win

Plymouth Devils

Plymouth Devils ended their four-match losing streak with a 52-41 win over the Rye House Rockets.

Ben Barker (12+2) top scored for Plymouth and was backed up by Ryan Fisher (11) and newly-appointed captain Cory Gathercole (8).

The win proved a team effort after all riders apart from guest replacement Ben Reade got among the points.

Despite the win, Devils remain second-bottom in the table but do have matches in hand on many of their rivals.

Plymouth got off to a flying start by recording five heat advantages in the opening six heats.

That opened up a ten-point gap for the home side and, despite a mid-match rally from the visitors, Plymouth ran out comfortable winners.
