Bristol Flyers were unlucky to lose this game at the SGS WISE Arena as RSG player of the game, Mathias Seilund, missed a wide open jumper at the buzzer.

Chavis Holmes scored a team-high 22 points and stepped up when his team needed him the most, nailing a game-winning shot with five seconds remaining, as Worcester Wolves made it five wins in a row in the BBL Championship with a 69-68 victory against Bristol Flyers at the WISE Basketball Arena on Saturday evening.

The second-placed Wolves improved to an impressive 16-4 record, while it was already the third loss in a row for Flyers, who dropped to 7-13.

The pre-game favorites lived up to their name right from the tip-off, breaking away to an early 8-0 lead, with Bristol struggling to put points on the board. Having finished the first quarter with a 23-17 advantage, the guests increased the gap to double figures by the halftime break, but Mathias Seilund didn’t allow the game to get out of hand, with 11 first-half points for Flyers.

Wolves started the second half with a 13-point advantage, but saw their lead disappear, as Flyers won the third quarter 19-9 to enter the final frame trailing Worcester only by three points at 57-54. Having trialed the whole game, Bristol got their first taste of the lead with 40 seconds remaining, as Greg Streete nudged the hosts ahead 68-67.

However, Chavis Holmes hit what turned out to be the winning basket on the other end of the court with merely five seconds remaining. Mathias Seilund had a chance to win it for Flyers, but his wide open jumper was off.
