Report: Newcastle Eagles 90-65 Bristol Flyers

A short-handed Bristol Flyers side were unable to end their bad run of form away from home, after a 90-65 defeat to Newcastle Eagles on Friday.

Flyers were without Cardell McFarland after suffering a concussion in last weekend’s defeat to Leicester Riders.

Eagles had not been in action since suffering a damaging defeat to the Riders two weeks ago, but their determination was evident as they blew away Bristol behind a 24-7 second quarter.

The lead reached 22 by half-time and from that point on it seemed there was no way back for Flyers, whose faint hopes of the reaching the BBL play-offs were all-but ended.

Joe Chapman led five Eagles in double-figure scoring with 17 points whilst Scott Martin had an 11-point, 12-rebound double-double.

Tyrone Lee was the high man with 19 points for Andreas Kapoulas’ side, who slip to a fourth straight defeat.

Flyers face Worcester Wolves in the penultimate home game of the season on Saturday, April 9th - click here to buy tickets online.
