A 4-2 in heat nine courtesy of Henry Atkins and Scott quickly restored Chargers’ five-point lead before three shared races.

Jenkins and Kinsley teamed up for a match-winning 5-1 in heat 13, which Colts responded to with a maximum of their own a race later.

Maximum men Jenkins and Atkins then rounded off the evening with Chargers’ fourth maximum of the night.

Team manager Peter Schroeck said: “This was a much-deserved victory for the team and everyone showed great resilience to come from behind after an early blip.

“Jordan and Henry were outstanding and we can ask no more from them. They’re really thriving on home shale, and that’s testament to the pathway they have here by doubling up with the Cheetahs.

“A few of the boys were frustrated to run some last places, but we’ve got to look at the team performance and ensure everyone supports one another so we can get over the line.”
