Polish star Maciej Janowski powered to a 14 paid 15-point maximum as Wroclaw closed on PGE Ekstraliga leaders Leszno with a 48-42 win at home to Zielona Gora on Sunday.
Magic is in majestic form ahead of Saturday’s ANLAS Czech SGP in Prague, and continued to build momentum with an unbeaten five outings against Falubaz, who were led by 13 paid 14 from world No.2 Patryk Dudek and Michael Jepsen Jensen’s 10 paid 12.
Janowski was nicely supported by 11 points from Tai Woffinden, with Prague wild card Vaclav Milik scoring six.
Elsewhere, triple world champion Nicki Pedersen refuses to be slowed for long by his broken hand after bouncing back from a tough night in Warsaw last weekend to score 13 points as Tarnow won 49-41 at home to Grudziadz.
It took two big rides from Artem Laguta in Pedersen’s final two rides to deny him a maximum, with the Russian also impressing on 15. Przemyslaw Pawlicki also picked up 11 for the visitors.
Jakub Jamrog had another strong night for the hosts on 10 paid 11, with Kenneth Bjerre adding nine paid 10.
Polish racer Bartosz Zmarzlik bagged 13 points to inspire Gorzow to a 53-37 triumph over Czestochowa at the Edward Jancarz Stadium.
National champion Szymon Wozniak led the way on 13 paid 14, with Krzysztof Kasprzak collecting 11. Danish star Leon Madsen recorded 11 of his own for the Lions. Matej Zagar notched nine paid 10, but it was a rare off-day for Freddie Lindgren, who managed just four.
In the Friday night meeting, Leszno tightened their grip on top spot with a thumping 53-37 win at struggling Torun.
Even 15 paid 16 from world champion Jason Doyle couldn’t save the hosts as Emil Sayfutdinov led the Bulls’ charge on 12, while Piotr Pawlicki and Janusz Kolodziej collected 11 paid 12 apiece. Jaroslaw Hampel notched nine paid 10.
Former world No.4 Rune Holta raced to nine paid 11 for Torun, but it was a tough night for Chris Holder, who managed just a point before withdrawing with concerns over his right leg after reportedly catching it under the footrest.
