Report: Bristol Flyers 80-79 Plymouth Raiders (OT)

Bristol Flyers completed a dramatic late turnaround to beat Plymouth Raiders 80-79 after overtime on Friday night.

Andreas Kapoulas’ side trailed by as many as 12 points during the fourth quarter before Cardell McFarland sparked the comeback.

The American guard scored the final four points of regulation from the free-throw line, before Greg Streete came up with a crucial defensive play to force the extra session.

With the momentum now firmly in their favour, Flyers made a strong start in overtime, Mathias Seilund striking from three-point range before McFarland produced the decisive basket.

The result means Raiders are still yet to beat Bristol in the BBL and Flyers improve to 4-9 as Daryl Corletto’s side slip to 3-8.

McFarland finished with a game-high 29 points as Lee added 17. Wilcher scored 26 points in a losing effort, supported by 19 from Adrien Sturt.

Flyers travel to Cheshire Phoenix on Sunday aiming to build on their new-found belief.
