Report: Newcastle Eagles 108-94 Bristol Flyers

Despite a team-high 28 points from Aaron Cosby, Bristol Flyers failed to overcome Newcastle Eagles on the road on Friday night.

Scott Martin turned in one of the performances of the season as the Eagles beat the Flyers 108-94 to maintain the pressure at the top of the BBL Championship table.

Martin scored 41 points, hitting nine three-pointers on 81% shooting, while snatching 11 rebounds and dishing five assists.

Flyers raced into an early 9-0 lead on Hameed Ali’s three-pointer. But that was as good as it would get as Newcastle went out in front, 28-25 by the end of the first period.

Eagles pulled further ahead in the second, and it was double-digits when Martin added five more in a run of ten unanswered points. The teams went in at the break with Flyers trailing 60-46.

Flyers narrowed the gap as Brandon Boggs scored 11 third quarter points, before getting as close as 86-81 on Greg Streete’s three-pointer in the fourth period.

But Deondre Parks and Orlan Jackman, with back-to-back triples, settled the game and pushed the lead back out to 98-86, and it went through the century when Fletcher scored consecutively soon after.
