• Flyers Put Cavaliers to the Sword

     Woking Blackhawk Flyers 80:70 Thames Valley Cavaliers

    With only three games to go, each one is vital in keeping the Flyers prospects of progressing to the play-offs alive.

    Thames Valley Cavaliers had only suffered a single defeat throughout the season, the Flyers were relishing the chance to inflict a second defeat – and they were not to be denied.

    The opening minutes of the game both sides traded baskets until the score was 5 each when the Flyers took control and went on a 12 point run which the Cavaliers did not respond to, the score widen to 17:5.

    Whilst the Cavaliers did close the margin the Flyers had a 6 point margin at the first break.

    The second quarter became a close fought contest with the Flyers relinquishing their lead by the half break with a two-point deficit 39:41. There was a crucial thirty seconds where hustler Dan Marshall rolled his ankle and big man Jim Grainger ‘tweeked’ his knee suddenly the bench did not seem so strong.  The Flyers maintained their confidence and round out this period.
