The King's Lynn Stars came away empty handed from Belle Vue last night despite a promising start to the fixture.
Captain Mads Korneliussen led the way for the Stars as he scored 11, paid 12, points which included being unbeaten from his first three rides. Niels-Kristian Iversen and Richie Worrall both provided back up with 8+1 and 7+1 respectively.
King's Lynn gained a 4-2 advantage in the opening race through Iversen and new recruit Lasse Bjerre, but their lead didn't last long, as the home side pulled the scores level with a 4-2 in heat four.
By heat 10 the Stars had pulled the scores level as Korneliussen and Worrall picked up a 5-1 after falling four points behind in the previous race. In the final five heats, the Stars fell apart. Iversen could only split the home pair of Ostergaard and Zetterstrom in heat 11, while in heat 12, Korneliussen and Kerr were on the receiving end of a 5-1.
A retirement from Iversen in heat 13 handed the home side maximum points from the meeting as the final two races of the night were shared with home riders taking the flag on both occasions.
