Report: Bristol Flyers 70-62 Surrey United

From BBL.org.uk

Bristol Flyers managed to put a rough stretch of four consecutive losses behind them with a 70-62 victory against Surrey United after a huge fourth-quarter turnaround at the WISE Basketball Arena in Bristol in the BBL Championship on Friday evening.

Bree Perine and Greg Streete carried Flyers with 22 points apiece, as the Bristol Sport side came away with the victory after trailing for the most of the game.

The hosts found it difficult to put points on the board at the start of the game, with United breaking away to a 21-13 edge after the first quarter. The gap had grown to double digits in the second period, but Flyers managed to cut the deficit to 34-28 by the time for the halftime interval.

United stayed in front heading into the last period as well, leading 50-42, but Flyers fought back to take a 58-57 edge halfway with five minutes remaining before adding five more solid minutes of basketball to complete a 16-point fourth-quarter swing.

Alif Bland was the only other player in double figures for Flyers with 12 points. He also added 12 rebounds and three blocks.

Kramer Knutson had a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds for United, while Anthony Downing collected 13 points and six assists.
