Report: Bristol Flyers 88-84 Plymouth Raiders

From BBL.org.uk

Bree Perine netted a game-high 34 points, as Bristol Flyers fought back from a double-digit deficit to edge the visiting Plymouth University Raiders 88-84 at the WISE Basketball Arena on Saturday.

The 26-year-old American guard scored 11 of his points in the third period, helping the hosts turn a 10-point point halftime deficit into a 67-60 lead heading into the final quarter of action.

The visitors from Plymouth had dominated the game in the first half and were firmly ahead, leading by as many as 17 points in the second quarter. However, Flyers finished the half with a 9-2 run to make it 51-41 at halftime.

After the interval, Flyers looked like a new team. Cheered on by the home crowd, the Bristol side outscored their opponents 26-9 in the third quarter to jump in the driver’s seat.

Although Raiders had shortly jumped back in front in the fourth quarter, Greg Streete put Flyers back in front with a three-pointer, as the hosts managed to hold on to the slender lead until the end of the game.

Alif Bland added 22 points and eight rebounds for Bristol, while Streete collected 13 points, eight boards and seven dimes.

Jordan Clarke double-doubled for Raiders with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Joshua Wilcher finished the game with 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists.
