Report: Surrey Scorchers 89-81 Bristol Flyers

An incredible performance from Scorchers captain Tayo Ogedengbe consigned Flyers to their ninth BBL defeat of the season.

The scores were tied at one apiece following the previous two meetings between the sides, but Scorchers ensured that they will claim the bragging rights over Flyers with victory in the final BBL game of the season between the sides.

With a fully fit roster to choose from, Coach Kapoulas began the game with a strong starting five; Mathias Seilund, captain Greg Streete, Doug McLaughlin-Williams, Tyrone Lee and Cardell McFarland.

The opening stages were close between two sides with similar records so far in the BBL, Scorchers eventually edging the first 24-22.

It was nip and tuck again in the second with Flyers' starting five all contributing points, Bristol taking a 44-41 lead into half-time .

Threes from Streete and McLaughlin-Williams early in the third saw Flyers extend that lead to six points, but some solid plays from Scorchers saw the home side eat into that lead to reduce it to three at the end of the third.

Flyers allowed Surrey to get back on level terms at the start of the final quarter, a Daniel Edozie foul seeing Scorchers cut the lead to one before a two from Andreas Schrieber handed his side the lead for the first time in the second half.

Scorchers, led by captain Tayo Ogedengbe with a massive 31 points and 10 rebounds, stretched their lead to six points midway through the fourth quarter, a lead they would hold on to, running out 89-81 winners.

Mathias Seilund top scored for Flyers with 21 points
