Report: Sheffield Sharks 70-43 Bristol Flyers

Flyers fell to a 70-43 defeat away at Sheffield Sharks in the BBL this evening.

Flyers had benefited from a two-week break since ending 2015 with a defeat away at Leicester Riders but started this game sluggishly, ending the first quarter down 17-10.

Sharks increased their lead to 11 midway through the second, before a couple of threes from Mathias Seilund saw Coach Kapoulas' men get within two points of Sheffield.

A terrible run of almost six minutes without a point followed for Flyers, falling 18 points behind before another three from Seilund got Flyers back on track but still down 44-27 with six minutes left to play in the third quarter.

Bristol were often the architects of their own downfall in the third with a series of poor turnovers seeing Sharks continue their dominance, up by 20 heading into the final quarter, 55-35. 

There was to be no big fourth quarter comeback from Flyers as Sharks closed out the game, winning 70-43.

Mathias Seilund top-scored for Flyers with 15 points.
