Pirates Clinch Elite League Title

Pirates Clinch Elite League Title

Poole sealed back-to-back titles last night with victory over a defiant Coventry side at Wimbourne Road. The Pirates came into the Grand Final second leg three points up from the first leg at Brandon on Friday, and they looked determined not to let their slender advantage slip in front of their own fans.

The meeting began in competitive fashion, and after four heats there was no separating the two sides, but a heat five 5-1 courtesy of Poole guest Troy Batchelor and Maciej Janowski put day light between the sides for the first time in the match.

Another 5-1 in heat eight put the Pirates 8 up on the night, 11 ahead on aggregate, and it was now looking increasing likely that the home side were going to clinch the Elite League title.

The Bees fought hard to keep themselves in the tie, ultimately the lack of heat advantages in the second leg proved to be their downfall. They restricted the Pirates to just two heat advantages in the last seven races, but the problem for the Bees was they couldn’t secure any advantage of their own.

Shared heats were good enough for the Pirates from heat eight onwards and in heat thirteen the superb Janowski sealed the 2014 Elite League Championship for Poole. The Pole was in outstanding form all evening, and after putting the Championship beyond the Bees in heat thirteen, he went on to make sure of his paid maximum in the final heat.

The Pirates put some gloss on the scoreline in heats fourteen and fifteen, when two 5-1′s made the score a little more flattering than the Bees deserved.

It was a brilliant performance by the home side, no one could deny that they deserved the title in the end. The Pirates went on to win all four meetings in the Play-Offs, and proved beyond doubt that they are worthy champions for the 2014 season.

However the Bees can be proud of their season after an up and down start to the campaign. Team manager Gary Havelock said after last nights match, “It’s very disappointing, we still had hope coming down here but in hindsight we probably lost it in the first leg at home.
“We needed to have a lead to come down here with really, and we didn’t manage to do that. But I can’t knock any of my boys, they’ve been fantastic this season and it’s been a pleasure working with each and every one of them. Over the two legs you have to hand it to Poole, they were the better side, it’s as simple as that, and we just didn’t quite make it.”

Bomber: “We’ll Come Back Hard”

Bomber: “We’ll Come Back Hard”

Coventry captain Chris Harris has insisted that his side will “come back hard” in tonight’s Elite League Grand Final second leg at Poole. The Bees trail the Pirates by three points as they head to the south coast, but Harris is insistent that his side aren’t beat just yet.

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the final Grand Prix of the season, last weekend in Torun. A fantastic meeting, a good atmosphere in front of a healthy crowd, superb facilities, topped off with a well prepared and shaped circuit.
