Report: Flyers U16s II 35-73 Plymouth Raiders U16s

Flyers U16s II had two tough games this weekend, starting with a home game against a very strong Plymouth Raiders team on Saturday.

Both teams started slowly and Raiders took a first quarter lead 6-14 with their captain Luke Calliwill scoring ten of their first quarter points, this was to be the pattern of the game with him totalling 41 of the 73 scored overall by Plymouth.

Although Flyers’ defence forced Plymouth to take tough shots, Flyers could not keep the much bigger Plymouth team off their boards which proved to be the difference between the two teams.

The second quarter was Flyers best, managing 12 points off of good ball movement and although they created many more opportunities, they couldn't convert these into points. It was good to see that a lot of the work being done on the training court is starting to pay dividends, with George Roebuck and Henry Ogilvie both putting in good shifts for the team.

Raiders took the win 73-35. Top scorers Cai Thomas (11) Henry Ogilvie (6).

Sunday saw the Flyers take a much younger team to Dorchester, featuring two of the up and coming U14's, Nassim Ladjimi and Casey Smith who both featured heavily in the game. Nassim came away with 12 points and Casey eight.

Once again Flyers started slowly and Tigers took a first quarter lead 12-19 but from that point on Flyers took control and their high tempo pressing gradually wore down an enthusiastic Tigers’ defence.

Flyers went into the half time break scoring 21 points in the second quarter and holding Tigers to nine points. There was only a brief point where Tigers’ #12 threatened to bring them back in when he hit five well defended contested three's.

This run was halted when Flyers best on the ball defender Harvey West shut him down completely and from that point Harvey held him to only two further points for the rest of the game. Flyers consistent team work saw them eventually pull away to win 64-88. Top scorers Cai Thomas (32) Alex Ceccarelli (15)

Flyers now look forward to next Saturdays game against Team Dragon which will be a closely contested challenge for the Flyers who will hopefully go into the game with confidence after two good team performances this weekend.
