SHEFFIELD seized control of their Knockout Cup Quarter-Final tie with King’s Lynn by claiming a stunning 58-32 victory at Owlerton.

The Tru Plant Tigers were in dominant form on home shale as they easily brushed aside a below par Stars team, rounding off the night with three straight 5-1s.

Jack Holder picked up three wins as he top scored for the South Yorkshire side while Tobiasz Musielak dropped just one point to an opponent.

That was something matched by winter signing David Bellego while Kyle Howarth reached double figures for the first time this season.

Lewis Kerr was in the thick of the action while Adam Ellis began to find his groove as the night went on.

Rising Star Dan Gilkes again demonstrated examples of his potential as the Tru Plant Tigers built up a 26 point advantage ahead of the second leg at the Adrian Flux Arena on Monday, April 24.

French star David Bellego said: “From 1-7, all the boys rode really good.

“The key was to make good starts to get away first and that’s what we did for most of the night.

“We can’t complain about the start to our season and we want to keep this sort of consistency going.”

The Tru Plant Tigers’ next fixture is at Ipswich on Thursday, April 20 with Peterborough the next visitors to Owlerton on Thursday, April 27 (7.30).

SHEFFIELD 58: Jack Holder 12+1, Tobiasz Musielak 11+3, Kyle Howarth 10, David Bellego 9+2, Lewis Kerr 7+1, Adam Ellis 5+2, Dan Gilkes 4.

KING’S LYNN 32: Josh Pickering 11, Nicolai Klindt 8, Frederik Jakobsen 4, Michael Palm Toft 3+1, Thomas Jorgensen 3, Jason Edwards 3, Krzysztof Kasprzak 0.
