CYCLE SPEEDWAY: Owen on top form in Bury win
7:00pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in Sport
BURY’S final Division One match away to Northumbria was hurriedly changed to Goshen as the new track was not available in time.
Will Owen starred for Bury in a 91-85 victory but they were pushed all the way thanks to a maximum from Northumbria’s Gavin Parr.
Parr raced away with race one from Owen but the overall scores were tied before Bury took the lead with a seven-pointer in the fifth heat.
Paul Dyson teamed up with Owen for a seven-pointer, before Joe Allan and Kristian Ramsden teamed up to take the next race 6-4 and increase the lead. Bury led 48-42 at the halfway point.
Nortumbria fought back, however, to reduce the lead to one point before two wins from Paul Dyson and a Ramsden victory saw the home side pull away again.
Parr helped the visitors come back again as they took a seven-pointer in race 16, but Allan and Jamson saw them secure six points from race 17 to be certain of the points.
Scores for Bury: Will Owen 16, Paul Dyson 14, Joe Allan 14, James Elston 10, Luke Jamson 10, Dawid Renc 8, Neil Howarth 13, Kristian Ramsden 6.
After last week’s disaster at Sheffield, Bury’s second team put in a determined effort to win their Division Two match against Northumbria 90-58.
They must now wait on the outcome of next week’s Edinburgh v Sheffield match to see if they have done enough to win the title. Danny Taylor and Ryan Livesey led the team’s charge to finish the match unbeaten with 19 points each.
Steve Mann, who made two good passes, lost on just one occasion, while a slip in race nine cost Kristian Ramsden victory and he finished with 15 points.
Scorers for Bury: Danny Taylor 19, Ryan Livesey 19, Steve Mann 17, Kristian Ramsden 15, Joe Halloran 7, James Elston 9, Thomas Whitwam 3, Adam Turnbull 1.
Bury made it three wins out of three against Northumbria with victory in their Division Three match.
They were well led by Adam Turnbull and Thomas Whitwam, who both raced unbeaten, with great support from Louis Turner and Bradley Sullivan ensuring the points.
Scorers for Bury: Adam Turnbull 16, Thomas Whitwam 16, Louis Turner 10, Bradley Sullivan 8.
The club individual – the final match of the season – takes place at Goshen next week.
