Report: Plymouth Raiders 77-88 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers maintained their unbeaten record against south-west rivals Plymouth Raiders with a 77-88 win in the BBL Cup.

Coach K's men are now 5-0 in all competitions against Raiders since joining the BBL in 2014, defeating Jay Marriott's side in their first ever BBL game before knocking them out at the same stage of the Cup last year.

There were great performances across the board for Flyers, with five players scoring double figures, led by Mathias Seilund with 23 points and double-doubles from Doug McLaughlin-Williams and Tyrone Lee.

Coach Kapoulas stressed the importance of cutting out mistakes earlier in the week, but his words seemed to fall on deaf ears in the first half - Raiders scoring eight points off Flyers turnovers to edge ahead at the break 44-43.

You get the feeling the Flyers coach repeated his message at half-time with his side limiting Raiders to just three points from turnovers in the whole second half. 

Strong shooting from the Flyers saw the side from Bristol build up a ten point lead mid-way through the fourth quarter, a deficit that proved too much for a Raiders side averaging just 37% from the field.

Bristol will now face Cheshire Phoenix in the second round of the cup after the north west side were granted a bye from the first stage.

Flyers return to the SGS WISE Arena this Friday, October 23rd as they host Manchester Giants in the BBL, click here to buy tickets online.
