Top-four hopefuls Redcar started well and took an early lead, one they held until heat six.

The home side then reeled off a string of 4-2s to give them a six-point lead going into heat 12.

The away side then hit a 4-2 to reduce the lead to four points with three to race, but home duo Rory Schlein and Danny King notched 5-1s in heat 13 and 15 to put some gloss on the final score.

After two false starts, heat one eventually got going, King winning with ease ahead of Jonas B Andersen with Nathan Greaves in third.

There was further delays in heat two as visiting guest Max Clegg broke the tapes and went from 15 metres in the re-run.

Danny Ayres won but, with Greaves and Connor Mountain behind him, it was a 3-3. The Bears made their mark in heat three as Tero Aarnio and Charles Wright gated and recorded a 5-1. Schlein won heat four as the points were shared.

Ben Barker won heat five in a shared heat to maintain his side’s lead before another tapes infringement in heat six. Jason Garrity was the culprit and he was replaced by Ayres.

It looked like being the first 5-1 to the home side as Greaves and King hit the front but the former lifted on the second lap, allowing Ayres to come through for second.

In heat seven, home duo Schlein and Mountain led, but Wright passed Mountain at the end of the opening lap.

Witches’ Mark Riss won heat eight with Andersen second as Mountain and Ayres battled it out for third, the former finally prevailing after Ayres fell.

Riss took three points again in heat nine, with Newman picking up a point for another 4-2.

King was a winner again in shared heat ten as the run of 4-2s came to an end. Schlein won heat 11 as a 3-3 kept things tight. Things got even tighter after heat 12 as Wright won with Ayres picking up third for a Bears 4-2, the Witches leading by four.

Once again it was Schlein and King who came up trumps, recording a 5-1 in heat 13 to put the hosts on the brink of victory.

The win was sealed in heat 14 through Newman, in a 3-3, before King and Schlein hit a 5-1 to put a gloss on the scoreline.
