Report: Bristol Flyers 91-97 Glasgow Rocks

Bristol Flyers could not hold on to their fourth quarter lead, as Glasgow Rocks stormed from behind to snatch a 97-91 victory on the road at the WISE Basketball Arena on Saturday in the BBL Championship.

While Flyers took a step backward in the Play-Off race against Manchester Giants and Plymouth University Raiders, Rocks came up with a big win in the three-way battle for fifth place in the standings.

After getting off the mark slowly with nine points in the opening quarter, Flyers blew the visitors away with a 38-point second quarter, turning a five-point deficit into a 47-38 lead at the halftime break.

The hosts enjoyed a double-digit advantage for much of the third period, but Rocks trimmed the gap to 71-64 before the start of the final quarter.

With just under four minutes remaining, Rocks battled back and edged in front 82-80 after Reggie Middleton’s basket. However, Roy Owen answered with a three-pointer and Flyers regained the advantage.

Flyers were still up 88-87 with a minute and a half left on the clock, but it was Rocks who had the final say, with Tommy Freeman burying two huge long-range shots to push the visitors ahead into what proved to be the decisive lead.

Tayo Ogedengbe had a game-high 23 points for Rocks, while Reggie Middleton added 22 points, 10 rebounds and six assist in the win. Freeman also scored 22 points, including the two clutch triples.

For Flyers, Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye had a team-best 19 points off the bench. Bryquis Perine chipped in with 18 points and five assists.
