Lakeside Hammers climbed up to fourth in the Elite League table with a 50-43 away win at Belle Vue Aces.
The Aces struggled from the offer and once Lakeside took the lead after Heat 8, they could never get back on level terms with the Essex outfit.
Score and scorers:
BELLE VUE 43
Magnus Zetterström 13, Chris Harris 10, Kauko Nieminen 7+1, Craig Cook 6+1, Kevin Wölbert 4+1, Artur Mroczka 1, Mark Lemon 2+1n
Davey Watt 13+1, Peter Karlsson 10+1, Richard Lawson 6+3, Piotr Swiderski 6+1, Kim Nilsson 6, Lewis Bridger 5, Josh Grajczonek 4+2
The Hammers' experienced top-two of Davey Watt (13+1) and Peter Karlsson (10+1) led them home, but they were solid throughout.
The Aces had Magnus Zetterstrom do well on 13, but that included a tactical win as they struggled without number one Matej Zagar - who was on Grand Prix qualification duty.
The Hammers were understandably delighted to take the maximum four points.
Team Manager Neil Vatcher said: "It was a fantastic team effort from Davey [Watt] through to Richard [Lawson].
"With four wins on the bounce and another heat leader [Seb Ulamek] on his way, we really aim to make this a winning season for the fans to enjoy."
