HITMEN 52 DEVON 41

Sunday August 03, 2014
At the tenth time of trying Buxton achieved their first win of the season and what an emphatic one it turned out to be!

Fantastic performances from Tony Atkin, the fast gating Adam Extance and a faultless 15 point maximum from the skipper Liam Carr sewed up what proved to be a comfortable 11 point victory.

The league points weren’t secured however until Tom Woolley’s heat 14 success.

‘It kept it exciting until the end’ commented happy Team boss Jayne Moss ‘but the result I don’t think was ever in doubt. A good victory and a great performance from Adam (Extance)’

It was indeed another impressive performance form the likable ex-road racer who had three wins in his 13 point tally. ‘I’ve had such a good meeting everything came together today and I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me get here’ said Extance.

Devon’s cause wasn’t helped by the non-arrival of number 1 Tim Webster and absence through injury of James Shanes, however their guest Brendan Johnson top scored for the visitors including a heat 10 victory on a tactical ride that kept it close until the latter heats.

Take nothing away from Buxton though this was a solid team performance that has been promised for a few matches now and no less than four maximum heat victories was an indication of how much they dominated the match.

Next up for the Hitmen it’s the National League 4s at Coventry next Sunday and they can look forward to the meeting with renewed optimism following this result.
