Report: Cheshire Phoenix 89-95 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers held off a valiant fourth quarter fightback from Cheshire Phoenix to claim an 89-95 victory for their third straight league win.

Andreas Kapoulas’ side saw their 22-point advantage whittled down to just two points but held on for a double-winning weekend on the road.

Six players reached double figures for the Flyers including Aaron Cosby and Daniel Edozie who combined for 31 points off the bench.

The Flyers moved ahead early and went up eight on a three from Edozie before the home side cut the gap to three. Bristol doubled their advantage in the second as they headed into the locker-rooms with a 38-44 lead.

It was in the third quarter where the visitors really made their move as they racked up 30 points in the period with a 13-3 run en route to building a 22-point differential.

However, a stunning 24-4 start to the final quarter saw Cheshire make it a two-point game on a three from Josh Wilcher with less than four minutes remaining.

Bristol responded with an 11-2 run and Cosby was able to close out the game from the line, finishing a flawless ten-for-ten to help the Flyers climb off the bottom of the table.
