CRADLEY put in another imposing display to see off visitors Kent at Monmore Green tonight.
The Heathens won every heat of the National League encounter to win 65-27.
Kent never had a better opportunity than the very first heat when Cradley's Matt Williamson slide out and was excluded from the re-run.
However, skipper Paul Starke came home in front to ensure the points were shared.
Kent Kings failed to pick up an early victory but did bag a number of second spots to keep them in the contest.
Heat four saw Steve Worrell claim his first victory on way to a sublime 18 point maximum.
Other impressive displays from Starke, Clegg and Greaves soon saw Cradley pull away as their visitors challenge petered out.
a number of 5-1 scores in the second half of the clash pushed the home side further and further ahead.
It was the perfect way for the Heathens to warm up for next week's home double header against Scunthorpe in the league and Mildenhall in the second leg of their Knockout Cup tie.
Cradley: Paul Starke (13+2), Tom Perry R/R, Max Clegg (14+1), Nathan Greaves (8+3), Steve Worrall (18), Matt Williamson (8+1), Danny Phillips (4+1).
Kent: Simon Lambert (7), Benji Compton R/R, Ben Morley (6), Luke Chessell (4+1), David Mason (6), Luke Harris (3), Danny Ayres (1+1).
