As the season progresses nicely the Bullets are in a busy phase of fixtures.
The Junior Bullets hosted Workington's JJ team and claimed a narrow 46-44 win and had all 6 of the team contributing to the result in a real team effort. To add to that Bullets' 15 Yr old JJ North rider, David Appleton was placed 2nd after a first place run off in the latest JJ rounds, leaving him in 14th place overall.
The seniors continued recent good form, with a very handy 51-39 win at the Bullet Arena over Newmarket Raiders. Again it was a solid showing throughout with the boys bagging the points to lift them to second in the table and keep the season alive.
Petr Marko 11+1 (5) Johannes Estil 5+1 (4) Jack Hagen 8 (4) Henrijs Birkerts 9 (4) Enzo Innacone 11+1 (5) Zoltan Stepukhin 3 (3) Steve Conway 4+2 (5)
In the GP series, Petr Marko made the Semi Finals in the European GP - his 12 points ensuring he sits in 4th in the overall standings with 3 rounds to go. Fellow GP entrant, Jack Hagen had a disappointing night finishing on 6 pts, but he is still tied in 6th place overall and still has a mathematical chance at a rostrum finish.
Week 15 sees the World U21 Final where Henrijs Birkerts, who has had an upturn in form, faces a strong field but goes with belief he can get among the leaders.
