We know what team we can become - Kapoulas

Andreas Kapoulas says he saw signs of the team that Bristol Flyers can become this season in his side's opening night win over Surrey Scorchers.

The Flyers rallied back from a 17 point deficit in the last five minutes to claim a 107-99 victory in overtime, behind a club record 35 point, 11 rebound performance from debutant Gentrey Thomas.

But it was the 'real team effort' that impressed the Flyers head coach the most in his side's come from behind win.

“A lot of people will look at the stats and look at Gentrey and Fred (Thomas’) numbers - but different guys stepped up when we needed them to do so," Kapoulas told Bristol Flyers TV.

 

Fred Thomas finished with 24 points and eight rebounds

“There was a lot of character and toughness out there and it came down to our defence.

“Surrey made some tough shots early on and found some confidence and I didn’t think were were physical enough in the first half.

“We did a much better job in the second half to force them to take tougher shots and we got out in transition and scored some open baskets.

Flyers travel to Crystal Palace this weekend to take on the London City Royals before hosting Worcester Wolves on Saturday, October 5th.
