Report: Cheshire Phoenix 58-72 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers made it a double-winning weekend after claiming a 72-58 win on the road at Cheshire Phoenix on Sunday evening.

The Flyers followed up their overtime win on Friday against South-West rivals, Plymouth Raiders, after holding off a fourth quarter comeback from Cheshire.

The home side went on a 12-0 run to start the final period and close within six, but Bristol fended off the fightback to claim their fifth victory in the league. 

Tyrone Lee top scored with 17 points and added 12 rebounds, while Daniel Edozie contributed a double-double of his own with a stellar 16 points and 16 boards.

Bristol edged their way to a slender lead at the end of the first, before making a timely 8-2 run before half-time to take a nine-point advantage into the break as Doug McLaughlin-Williams netted twice from downtown.

The lead extended beyond double digits in the third as the Flyers took complete control as Lee and Edozie continued to do the damage inside and on the glass.

Facing an 18-point deficit at the start of the fourth, Jordan Williams instigated a revival with nine points in a 12-0 start.

However, Bristol responded with a 12-2 run in a devastating spell to secure the victory and avenge their recent BBL Cup Quarter-Final loss at the hands of Cheshire.

Williams led all scorers with 20, but it wasn’t enough to guide Cheshire to their seventh league win as they drop to a 6-9 mark.
