Women's Report: Bristol Flyers 43-28 Southwark Pride

Bristol Flyers Women faced Southward Pride for the first time this season, in a match-up that has frequently been heated and tense in the past. 

The Flyers were looking to follow on from their last regular season game where they won over Loughborough by 38 points, while Southwark were wanting a change of form which has so far seen them floundering at the foot of the season standings.

The game was physical from the outset, with Southwark playing tough defence and also matching the Flyers’ scoring efforts. 

Hannah Wallace picked up plenty of points and steals early on while Mai Ansoain Zilbeti orchestrated enough fast break chances that saw the Flyers lead 13-9 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second, Arlette Palmquist picked up points in the low post and Leila Jepson did the same from further out, which saw the Flyers take their first double-digit lead of the game.

Orie Amadi led the home team in dominating possession, which saw Southwark held scoreless for the first six minutes of the period. A lapse in concentration on defence from the Flyers saw their lead cut to three, but a late three-pointer from Jepson saw them lead 23 points to Southwark’s 17 at half-time.

At the start of the second half Wallace and EG Sylva gave the Flyers their double-digit lead back, while Southwark were limited to just a handful of chances at basket.

Down the stretch, Southwark had the better scoring opportunities, but thankfully for the Flyers they missed more than they scored. 

Jepson’s form on offence continued throughout the second half, as did Palmquist’s in the low post and Amadi’s defensive efforts that saw the Flyers in control for the game’s remainder to see out the low-scoring but dominant win.
