Double world champion Tai Woffinden raced to a 13 paid 15-point maximum for Masarna as they completed their regular Swedish Elitserien campaign with a 67-23 demolition of Lejonen on Tuesday.

Masarna secured second place in the final table and join leaders Vetlanda in progressing directly into the play-off semi-finals, while the fourth-placed Lions face Dackarna in third, fifth-placed Smederna and last year’s champions Rospiggarna, who were sixth, in the quarter finals.

The Avesta outfit signed off their regular season in red-hot form with Woffinden unbeaten, along with GP Challenge winner Przemyslaw Pawlicki, who bagged 14 paid 15. Linus Sundstrom also scored an eight paid 12-point maximum, while reserve Artur Czaja added 11 and SGP star Antonio Lindback accrued eight paid 10.

Aussie rider Chris Holder offered Lions only serious resistance on 11 points as the visitors badly missed the injured Piotr Pawlicki.

Elsewhere, a fantastic 15 points from Bartosz Zmarzlik couldn’t save table-topping Vetlanda from a 49-41 loss at Indianerna, as the home side secured their spot in the top flight, finishing seventh. Martin Vaculik also impressed on 11 paid 12 for the visitors.

New Indians recruit Anders Thomsen made himself an instant hero in Kumla by leading the charge on 13 paid 14, while club legend Piotr Protasiewicz added a straight 13.

Swedish star Freddie Lindgren and Rune Holta powered to 13 paid 14 points apiece for Dackarna as they beat Piraterna 59-31 in Malilla to consign the cash-strapped Motala men to the Elitserien basement and possible relegation if the Allsvenskan League champions seek promotion.

Piraterna put out an appeal for cash donations on their website this week and are also struggling with injuries, with Greg Hancock, Niels-Kristian Iversen Peter Kildemand all sidelined.

Dackarna racer Patryk Dudek added to Pirates’ woes with nine paid 12, while Maciej Janowski collected eight paid 10. Daniel Davidsson was the visitors’ top scorer on eight paid nine, while Emil Sayfutdinov recorded five.

In the day’s other meeting, a 13 paid 16-point haul from Jason Doyle couldn’t spare Rospiggarna a 48-42 loss at Smederna. Finnish racer Timo Lahti also weighed in with 13 for the Hallstavik outfit.

Pontus Aspgren was Smederna’s star man on 10 paid 11, while Andzejs Lebedevs tallied 10. Matej Zagar scored seven.
