Eagles gain point at Wolverhampton despite defeat

Eastbourne gained an Elite League point at Wolverhampton on Monday night, although they lost 47-42.

The positive was that the point made up for the one dropped at home on Saturday.

The negative was that but for a catalogue of misfortune, the Lifestyle Eagles might have taken three points at Wolves.

Early on, the Eagles struggled with difficult track conditions and Lukas Dryml fell in both hears eight and 11.

Top scorer for the Eagles was Simon Gustafsson with 11 points from six rides.

The Eagles go to King’s Lynn on tomorrow (Wednesday).
