Report: Glasgow Rocks 87-54 Bristol Flyers

A short-handed Bristol Flyers' took a heavy 87-58 away defeat to Glasgow Rocks on Sunday night.

The home side made a 15-4 start and never looked back as the Flyers were already facing an uphill task with the absences of Tyrone Lee and Doug McLaughlin-Willliams.

At the end of the first, Glasgow were up by 12, and the lead would remain in double digits for the majority of the encounter, though the Flyers did cut the gap to seven briefly in the second.

The Rocks began to push on in the second half and a 13-2 run saw them open up a 21-point cushion at the end of the third period. There was no let up in the fourth, and the advantage peaked at 31 points following an 8-0 run.

Cardell McFarland paced the Flyers with 18 points as they dropped their third straight league game, and now have a 5-12 record in the BBL Championship.

Bristol Flyers return home on Saturday night to take on Leeds Force at the SGS WISE Arena - Click here to buy tickets online.
