Bristol Flyers 89 Surrey Scorchers 67

Bristol Flyers completed the season sweep over the Scorchers with a commanding victory at the SGS Wise Arena.


Creon Raftopoulos’ side struggled to get into their groove as the home side took control early and never looked back.


Cameron Hildreth filled the stat sheet with ten points, ten rebounds and five assists but it wasn’t enough to get the win.


The game started as a low-scoring affair with just two points scored in the opening three minutes of action.


Teddy Okereafor and Eric Lockett took control of the contest for Flyers, before Ryan Richards entered the game and scored on back-to-back plays.


Bristol led the contest 18-13 after a slow first quarter.


Andreas Kapoulas’ team stepped up their offensive onslaught in the second quarter as Josh Rogers scored three consecutive three-point shots, forcing Creon Raftopoulos to call a timeout.


Cameron Hildreth took control for the Scorchers with some impressive passing and shot-making, but Surrey trailed by eight points at the interval.


Flyers took the game by the scruff of the neck in the third quarter as Lockett and Marcus Delpeche were free scoring for the home side.


Scorchers were unable to slow down their opponents as Bristol poured in 27 third quarter points, leading the game by 16 points with a quarter to play.


Despite back-to-back three point shots from Tony Hicks early in the fourth quarter, Surrey left themselves with too much to do as the Bristol Flyers picked up a comfortable 89-67 victory on their home floor.


Scorchers are back in action on Sunday as we travel to Cheshire Phoenix in the BBL Championship.
