WOLVERHAMPTON stormed to a stunning 62-34 first leg win in their Elite Shield contest with Lakeside at Monmore on Monday.

The result, inspired by a full house from Freddie Lindgren (11+1) and an impressive 13-point haul by skipper Tai Woffinden, puts the Parrys International Wolves in the driving seat for Friday's return in Essex against the cup holders.

Peter Adams' men were in a dominant and determined mood from start to finish.

They opened up in style with four successive maximum 5-1 wins, the last of which saw Woffinden superbly team riding Chris Kerr to block out the determined challenge of Adam Shields.

It took an impressive pass from Krzysztof Kasprzak on Joe Screen to stop the rot for the Hammers - but they could do nothing to prevent a Wolves onslaught.

Hammers chief Jon Cook restored some pride for his side with both his tactical moves working well in the Hammers' first outing of the season.

Adam Shields made a sharp start in the re-run of Heat 9 to outpace the gritty Screen - and two heats later Kasprzak trapped to get the edge over home skipper Woffinden.

WOLVES: Tai Woffinden 13, Freddie Lindgren 11+1, Joe Screen 9, Ty Proctor 8+2, Nicolai Klindt 8+1, Chris Kerr 7+3, Ludvig Lindgren 6+1.

LAKESIDE: Krzysztof Kasprzak 13, Adam Shields 10, Kauko Niemenen 3, Jonas Davidsson 3, Paul Hurry 3, Daniel Davidsson 2, Stuart Robson 0.
