Report: Bristol Flyers Women 61-45 Solent Suns

Bristol Flyers women had their finest moment of the season, beating the 2014/15 play-off champions Solent Suns on Saturday.

With just eight players available and Head Coach Greath Till unavailable due to work commitments, the win was even more impressive. Paul Mundy took the lead coaching role for the night in Coach Till's absence and did an excellent job.

Flyers led from start to finish, using some great teamwork to manage the dangerous Solent press. Flyers responded brilliantly to any Solent runs. Fiona Fox playing a fine captains role, rallying her troops and leading from the front. Flyers winning 61-45.

Flyers once again shared the ball effectively on offence, with four players in double digits. Liisa Juul had an excellent game, with a fine double-double, 13 points and 15 rebounds.

Coach Till commented “We knew the challenges we were facing, Solent are a good well drilled team. We had to prepare well and have strong game plan. Paul, Steve Borde and the girls did a fantastic job executing it.

"The adversity really brought everyone together, you can see how much the win meant, it was a great team performance. It feels like we’re realising our potential, which is exciting"

This win keeps the Flyers hopes of a play-off spot alive. Solent, Oxford and the Flyers are all in the mix for the final spots. Reading are pretty much assured of a birth, reaming unbeaten in the league.

“We have to win all our remaining games to have a chance. We have some difficult games coming up, including Reading at home. We’re really looking forward to the challenge. We’re unbeaten in the league at WISE, which needs to be maintained if we want to make the top three” Till added

Flyers travel to Cardiff on Sunday, February 21st, playing Cardiff Archers II.
