GLASGOW TIGERS 53 SCUNTHORPE SCORPIONS 37 (SGB CHAMPIONSHIP)

HENDERSON INSURANCE Scunthorpe Scorpions put up a fighting performance at Glasgow, before fading in the final few races.

Scorpions took the lead with a 4-2 from reserves Fritz Wallner and Josh Bailey in Heat 2, and it was nip and tuck in the early stages. Glasgow opened a four-point lead, only for Wallner and Carl Wilkinson to peg the scorers back to 24-24 with a 5-1 in Heat 8.

Ryan Douglas recorded an excellent victory over Richard Lawson in Heat 11, as Scorpions remained just two points in arrears.

But Tigers pulled away in the final four races, as Scorpions missed out on the SGB Championship points.
