Flyers Downed – but not out !!!
Woking Blackhawk Flyers 78:63 Sussex Bears
For their penultimate regular league game of the season Woking Blackhawk Flyers travelled to Worthing to take on league leader Sussex Bears. Whilst the Bears have only lost a single game this season the Flyers were buoyed by their recent victory over second place Thames Valley Cavaliers who had also only lost a single game. If the Flyers won then a place in the playoffs would be highly likely.
From the tip the Flyers played confidently and by the seventh minute had established a nine point lead 21:12. The Bears responded and went on a run which trimmed the lead to 1 point by the first break 21:20.
By the half the Bears a lead of 12 and this was widened to 25 at the end of the third quarter. The Flyers were not finished and at the start of the fourth quarter went on a 14 point run without response from the Bears and further progressed until at one stage the lead had been trimmed to 9 points. The Bears however ran out the final quarter with a 15 point win but losing the quarter 20:10
End of the Season for the Flyers as they Down the Rockets
Woking Blackhawk Flyers 91:39 Reading Rockets
A dominant performance for their last regular season league home game saw the Flyers resoundingly beat their local rivals Reading Rockets 91:39. Unfortunately progression to the play-offs also required Thames Valley Cavaliers to beat Kent Crusaders which they did not achieve.
The Rockets took the initial 2-point lead, they followed that with Foard sinking a long three taking the score to 4:5. That was the last time in the game that Rockets led.
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.
