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 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
