Report: Bristol Flyers 71-47 Leeds Force

Bristol Flyers claimed their biggest win of the season as the BBL play-off contenders clinched their fourth victory in a row, 71-47 at home to Leeds Force in this game presented by RSG.

From BBL.org.uk

Both teams came into the game off the back of impressive victories last time out and with heightened hopes of extending their first season the top-flight.

But it was Andreas Kapoulas’ side who left with the points, and the all-important head-to-head tie-breaker, after beating Force for the second time this season, thanks to defiant defence.

There was little to pick between the sides in an even and cautious first period. But Matt Newby’s men were limited to just four points in the second quarter as Flyers forged ahead.

Force improved after half-time, but connecting on just 25 per cent of their shots from the field was never going to help their cause, and the visitors eventually fell to a third defeat in four.

Flyers have now won four games in a row and improve to 12-17, good enough for seventh spot in the standings.

RSG player of the game, Greg Streete, thrilled the sell-out home crowd with 26 points and 14 rebounds as Alif Bland added 12 points and eight boards.

Force were paced by 18 points from Will Hall, who started on the bench.
