KING’S LYNN suffered a heavy 58-32 defeat in the A47 derby at Peterborough on Monday.
The Minors and Brady Stars were in high spirits on the back of a dramatic turnaround at Ipswich last Thursday but were unable to add to those first Premiership points of the season. The Adrian Flux Arena outfit was rocked by the loss of skipper Lewis Kerr on Sunday who sustained a broken collarbone whilst on second-tier duty with Eastbourne.
And despite the introductions of new signings Ricky Wells and Connor Mountain, they were unable to make any real impression on a tricky night all-round. Richard Lawson and Thomas Jorgensen both achieved double figures with Wells winning his opening ride on his way to a steady six points.
Ty Proctor found speed as the evening progressed while Connor Mountain found himself in better positions along the way than his single point may suggest. It was a rare pointless night for No.1 Erik Riss – but team boss Peter Schroeck is confident the German will bounce back even stronger.
