SPEEDWAY: STOKE Easy Rider Potters got back to winning ways with a 51-43 win over Hull on Saturday.
Emiliano Sanchez won heat one in the fastest time of the season before Stoke went in front with a 5-1 from Robbie Kessler and Peter Carr in heat three.
Hull levelled before birthday boy Jack Hargreaves (17) teamed up with Paul Clews for maximum points in heat eight. Sanchez was given a tactical ride in heat 11 after Hull slipped 10 points behind and took second place, behind Potters guest Magnus Karlsson.
Stoke went 43-31 clear after a rerun heat 12. Karlsson won heat 13 from tactical rider Garry Stead and Sanchez, with Mogridge hot on their heels. Emil Kramer and Simone Terenzani gained a 4-2 in the penultimate race over Barrie Evans to pull Hull within eight points.
Mogridge won the battle of the big guns in the last. He edged out Stead going in to turn three and Sanchez cut back under Karlsson coming off the final turn to secure third position.
Boss Nigel Crabtree said: 'It was a very good meeting and, while the right team won on the night, Hull made a good go of it and will probably be happy enough with the result.
Promoter Dave Tattum added: 'I thought everyone did a good job because Hull are a decent team and always go well around here. It's been a good week on the whole and that should give us heart when we go up to Berwick next Saturday in the KO Cup.'
Stoke Potters face Edinburgh at Loomer Road on Sunday (7pm) in the Premier Trophy.
Barrie Evans top scored for Stoke Spitfires in a defeat at Mildenhall on Sunday. The two teams meet again at Loomer Road tonight, with Rob Grant expected to return.
