THE Cases Somerset Rebels were unable to get their League Cup campaign back on track against Plymouth, losing 52-41 at the Boniface Arena.

Despite dropping a point in their narrow 49-43 home victory over the Devils, the Rebels had hoped for a double.

They started well and held a 10-point lead after seven heats, but fell apart after Plymouth took an 8-1 heat advantage in the eight. Skipper Olly Allen had a disappointing night, failing to finish in any of his three outings.

The home win over Plymouth was a good all-round performance, with Allen posting the top score of 11 (paid 12), followed by Claus Vissing on 10 (paid 12).
