Report: Worcester Wolves 74-81 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers claimed their first road win of the season after beating Worcester Wolves 74-81, on Friday.

The game was tied at 74 inside the final two minutes and Andreas Kapoulas' side closed out the win with a 7-0 close.

Aaron Cosby once again top scored for Bristol with 22 points off the bench with four other players in double figures.

Wolves went on an early 9-0 run in a similar start to their comfortable win over Bristol two weeks ago, but the visitors recovered and closed the opening period with the last eight points to draw level.

The Flyers moved ahead early in the second, but a tight quarter ensued and the two teams were still level at the interval.

Both offences stepped up to produce a high-scoring third period with a flurry of triples putting Wolves up by six at 66-60 before Bristol responded to lead with a burst across quarters.

A tense finish ensued with the game tied multiple times in the fourth before Cosby's three-point play put his side ahead for the final time as they made it back-to-back victories.
