Worcester Wolves Women encountered yet more pain this season as they suffered an agonising three-point defeat to fellow league strugglers Bristol Flyers on Saturday.

The Flyers had not won a game all season but flew out of the blocks early on to open up a five-point lead within the first minute of the contest.

However, the Wolves rallied and soon got back on top as halfway through the quarter, they led the game 7-5.

But any joy was short lived as Bristol hit form and by the end of the quarter, the held a convincing 10-point lead at 12-22.

As the second quarter got underway the Wolves came onto the court a different team and this was reflected in the score as the Flyers' lead was halved within two minutes of the quarter.

The final two minutes was the same as the Wolves' clinical edge came in handy, allowing them to tie the game 36-36 as the game reached half-way.

The third quarter started much the same as the first, end-to-end scoring before the Flyers managed to take back a slender lead with some clinical shooting and well worked counter plays.

Despite a two-point layup at the end of the quarter from Nuri Seyedagha-Calderon, the Wolves went into the final quarter seven points down (44-51).

The final period was very tense with both teams going back and forth as the Wolves were trying their most to salvage some much-needed points going into the Christmas break.

However, despite the Wolves outscoring the Flyers in the last quarter by four points it just wasn’t enough as the final score ended 60-63 to the Flyers.

Charlotte Finn played all 40 minutes, scoring the most points (14) for the Wolves overall.
