Report: Bristol Flyers II 92-75 Cardiff City

Bristol Flyers II made it four wins in a row against the visiting Cardiff City. 

Jordan Daniels led all scorers with a season-high 25 points. Alex DeHaan made a huge contribution off the bench with 13 points and five assists.

BOX SCORE


WHAT HAPPENED

Lewis Tucker had the hot hand early for the visitors, knocking down a trio of triples in quick succession. Flyers’ sharpshooter David Mann answered from deep to keep the score tight through the early goings.

Tucker caught fire hitting another three to total 16 first quarter points. DeHaan made an instant impact from the bench, finding Jakub Kulig in the paint to send him to the line then scything through the defence for a lay-up of his own. The teams seemed evenly matched in the first period and the quarter ended 25-25.

Jordan Daniels seized control of the game early in the second, hitting a long two and then following it up with a transition three-pointer. Daniels found player coach Roy Owen on the baseline for a high arcing jumpshot and then went coast-to-coast for a lay-up to tie the game up.

Turnovers became a factor for the visitors and Flyers were able to get out and run for some easy scores. Rhys Farrell showed his ability to stretch the defence with a go-ahead three and followed with a fast break lay-up. DeHaan swished a three of his own to give Flyers a 14 point lead. Further shooting from Tucker allowed City to close the gap a little, 54-42 at half-time. 

Cardiff came out re-energised to cut their deficit to single digits in the third. Daniels was relentless attacking the basket and added nine points in a two minute stretch as the Flyers lead ballooned to 17 points. The third quarter closed 71-62.

With Farrell and Mann re-entering the game, Flyers began to convert from distance and extend their lead. Mann filled up the box score with 15 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block. Farrell dropped 18 points and added five boards and four assists.

Wilks continued to play hard down the stretch and finished with 18 points and five rebounds. Daniels made a highlight play, picking the pocket of Aaron Ebos and soaring for a two-handed dunk to underline the win. The result sees Bristol improve to third place in the league with a 7-4 record.
