BOX SCORE


WHAT HAPPENED

Flyers fell behind early, conceding a pair of quick scores in the paint. Asa Waite located Lukasz Kubik inside on the fast break for Flyers’ first score of the game - Waite capped off the 13-0 run with a three-pointer.

Arrows’ veteran Joseph Baugh was able to complete a three-point play of his own. As the starters rotated out for Flyers, the bench were able to make big contributions early. Curtly Ferguson attacked the offensive glass for a pair of second chance scores. Callum McCulloch used his size to finish over the defence. Arrows coach Jonny Kelly took an early timeout with the score 22-11. Arrows responded well, attacking the basket and getting paint scores and free throws to end the first period with the lead dwindling, 26-22.

With the starters retaking the floor, Marvin Dinnall used his speed to scythe through the Arrows defence and score. Landolfi caught fire in the third quarter hitting a trio of three-pointers, amassing 16 points in the period. Flyers were able to make successive scores while locking in on defence, achieving a 19-0 run to extend their lead to 21 points midway through the second quarter and force another Arrows time-out.

A high scoring third quarter saw Flyers pull further ahead. Arrows struggled to contend with Flyers centres McCulloch and Kubik inside. Kubik was instrumental in Flyers significant rebounding advantage throughout the game hauling in 11 rebounds of his own as his team won the rebounding battle 61-38. McCulloch poured in an efficient 14 points on 78% shooting, with 10 points in the third quarter. With contributions coming from multiple players Flyers were able to put together a 38 point quarter and grow their lead further, finishing the period 92-66.

Flyers’ strength in depth was an advantage throughout the game totalling 62 bench points against just 13 from Arrows. The second half saw a scoring outburst from the Eddy Brownell, the younger of the two Brownell brothers on the Arrows roster. He was effective off the drive and despite a tougher than average shooting night was able to connect multiple times from deep on his way to a game high 28 points. Arrows forward Naphtali Nembhard-Headley was also particularly productive in the second half, getting scores multiple times on effort plays for offensive rebounds. Flyers were able to keep the pace high and match Arrows output to close out the game ahead 118-94

Flyers improve to fifth place in Division Two North with a 3-3 record. They will face Manchester Magic on the road Saturday November 16th. They will then return home to WISE in two weeks; hosting University of Chester on Saturday November 23rd (4.30pm tip-off).
