Eastbourne supercharged their 2018 National League campaign with a 55-35 win at Plymouth tonight (August 10).
The Forman IT Eagles roared into the lead from the off and were never headed.
A brief mid-match rally from the Devonians was quelled as the Eagles took complete advantage of an injury to Plymouth's No 1, Ellis Perks, in the first race.
Perks, a former Eagle, had to withdraw from the meeting because of the crash.

Connor Dugard, the Eastbourne team manager, said: "A great performance and just what we wanted as we begin a really busy period of racing.
"This has set us up brilliantly. Every team member played a full part and we look forward to completing a quick double tomorrow night at Arlington."
