Report: Plymouth Raiders 86-91 Bristol Flyers

From BBL.org.uk

Doug McLaughlin-Williams produced a late three-point salvo to see Flyers snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

A stunning flurry of late three-pointers saw Bristol Flyers snatch an 86-91 victory on the road at Plymouth University Raiders, meaning they have beaten their South West rivals three times this season and have posted back-to-back league wins to move back into the playoff places.

Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye led the way with 21 points, while Captain Greg Streete posted an inspirational double-double of 20 and 11 rebounds. Flyers shot 54% from long range with six different players hitting three-pointers on the night.

This came after the Raiders had opened the game with the first eight points, Brent Benson hitting two triples, and established an 18-8 lead as Benson scored again. But after that opening the Flyers matched their hosts for the remainder of the first half as four points for Lautier-Ogunleye and Tamas Okros’s trey resulted in a 47-43 deficit at the break.

Streete opened the second half with a three as the visitors took their first lead at 47-51 on an 8-0 burst, as the Raiders did not score for nearly five minutes. Pierre Hampton halted that run, before seven lead changes ensued and the teams could not be separated by more than one score all the way up to a fascinating final four minutes.

Plymouth looked to have re-established their lead, and perhaps won the game, as Benson and Hampton – two of the league’s top three long range shooters – scored consecutive three-pointers for an 82-76 lead with 2.51 to play.

But then Flyers’ long range prowess turned the game on its head: Doug McLaughlin-Williams, the seventh best three-point shooter in the league, hit a startling three triples in a 14-2 explosion in just two minutes at the end of the game, burying the Raiders.
