The Vortex Lakeside Hammers excellent start to the season continued on Friday with a third successive win.
The Hammers saw off a second half recovery from the Leicester Lions to eventually take all three of the available Elite League points that were available by winning by 52 - 42.

Friday's scorers were:-
The Vortex Lakeside Hammers 1. Peter Karlsson 11+1, 2. Richard Lawson 9, 3. Davey Watt 10+1, 4. Mikkel Bech 7, 5. Lewis Bridger 5+3, 6. Ben Morley 4,
