A stunning all round team performance saw the  Castle Cover Pirates race to a 48 – 42 point victory in the first leg of the Elite League grand final against the London – based Lakeside Hammers.   But Poole team manager Neil Middleditch is warning his side to remain focussed and not get over confident before the return leg at Poole next Monday evening.

“ It was another good all round team performance “ said Middleditch “ and I am very pleased in the way we stuck to our game plan and held on to take the win.”

“ However we are only at the half way mark right now, there is still the little matter of next week’s second leg.  I have told the boys that anything can happen and we can’t afford to take anything for granted. Lakeside will be determined to show their fans that this match is far from over and we must remain focussed. “

Poole were always in control, easily seeing off the home side’s mid match attempt to get back on level terms.  Pirates skipper Bjarne Pedersen was in usual fine form, showing his liking for the Lakeside raceway by topping the Poole scorecharts with a fine 12 point haul.

Pirates man of the match however was Adam Skornicki who battled hard for his 10 points , while Dave Watt shrugged off a flu – like virus to weigh in with a 7 point return.

Defending a six point lead from this first leg, the bookmakers are sure to make the Pirates odds – on favourites to lift their first Elite League championship title since 2004, when the two sides line – up for the second leg at Poole next Monday evening.
