ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Virgin Islander Leslee J. Smith and the Bristol Flyers fourth quarter comeback fell short as they failed to beat the visiting Surrey Scorchers, losing to the visitors 74-85, on Friday March 24, 2017.

Despite Hameed Ali coming off the bench for 20 points and 10 assists Flyers couldn't secure the win.

The visitors started the game in dominant fashion going on an 11-0 run and shooting just under 50% for the first period.

Bristol experienced a short stint of success offensively in the second quarter but Scorchers defended viciously, as Michael Ocherepbia recorded a huge block shot to protect their precious lead. On the other end, Flyers switched off defensively and Scorchers' Gabriel McCray drove down the lane for a fierce one-handed dunk.

Bristol were faced with a 16 point deficit at the start of the final quarter and brought the lead down to just six points as the SGS arena exploded on an Ali trademark dunk, but with Bristol poised to steal the game Surrey made a tough contested jump-shot to close the door on Flyers' comeback and effectively end the game.

Smith finished with six points, 12 rebounds, 1 assist and a steal.

      Who in the hell is you to talk about him not being consistent. You people on that island is just out of all order. People are away pouring out their heart and soul in labour and God giving talent, giving you scummy minded people a good name and this is the kind of encouragement and thanks they get in return. What happened to a "keep pushing" or "you can do it". When he put on, he put on for the V.I so come with your facts when you come or hush your hatin/a.
