Report: Surrey Scorchers 72-80 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers bounced back from their sixth league defeat to beat Surrey Scorchers 80-72 on the road.

Five players hit double figures for the visitors led by Mathias Seilund with 18 points in the absence of Cardell McFarland – who missed out through injury.

Tyrone Lee was one rebound shy of a double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds, while Doug McLaughlin-Williams also netted 15 points from the bench.

After the home side edged the early proceedings, the Flyers went on a 17-4 run through the first quarter break capped by a three from Greg Streete to make it 21-30.

The Flyers increased their lead beyond double digits as McLaughlin-Williams netted a fourth 3-pointer in the first half. When play resumed for the third period, the visitors saw their lead grow to as many as 18 before Surrey began to hit back.

An 11-1 burst helped the Scorchers cut their deficit back into single figures as they threatened to pull off another comeback victory. However, back-to-back baskets from Lee to start the fourth helped the Flyers maintain their advantage.

Surrey could only close to within seven points late on as they dropped to a 3-3 mark. Tayo Ogedengbe led the resistance with 21 points, but his side were unable to repeat their opening game success over Bristol.
