Eastbourne Eagles were back to winning ways at Arlington last night as they beat Essex outfit Lakeside 51-39.

It was revenge for a double defeat on Good Friday by the visitors but the Lifestyle Eagles certainly did not have it all their own way.

Lakeside went eight points up after four races but from then on control of the meeting gradually moved to the Eastbourne side of the pits.

A strong finish, anchored by captain Cameron Woodward, pictured, secured all three league points, which pushed the Eagles back into the Elite League top four.
