Report: Cheshire Phoenix 90-71 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers failed to make to the semi-finals of the BBL Trophy, following aΒ 90-71Β defeat to Cheshire Phoenix away from home on Sunday night.

Earl Brown led the way for Cheshire with 29 points and 10 rebounds as the starting five logged heavy minutes for the hosts.

The two sides traded baskets throughout the first before Cheshire edged ahead with Brown to lead after ten minutes. The Flyers led at the mid-point in the second, but Phoenix went on an 10-0 run to establish control going into half-time.

Bristol levelled at 50 in the third before another 10-0 burst from the hosts proved pivotal as they began to pull away.

A 12-2 start to the fourth extended the gap to 19 points as Cheshire did enough to advance to a semi-final showdown with either Leicester Riders or Newcastle Eagles.

Bristol had won seven of their last eight games, but bow out of the Trophy despite 21 points from Aaron Cosby.
