SONY CENTRE FURY 95 WEST LOTHIAN WOLVES 57
Scottish Junior Men Division 1 Championship
Fury U18 Men are this season`s Division1 League Champions and the 38pt road win against West Lothian Wolves, means its back to back JM Div 1 titles for Coach Keith Bunyan and a number of the current team. Fury maintained their near 40pt average game winning stat with a solid team performance that saw 5 players in double figure scoring. The title gives Fury their second major Trophy of the season following on from the Senior Men`s recent Scottish Cup Final win over St.Mirren. It also maintains the clubs consistent form in the past 10 seasons at U18 Mens Division 1 level where they have taken the League, Cup or Play-Off titles, now on 8 occassions. Fury started strongly with a 32-16 opening quarter. Wolves pulled a point back to give the Falkirk side a 15pt half-time lead. The third saw Fury tighten up their defence, holding Wolves to 9 points while putting a further 24 on the board for a 30pt lead going into the final stanza. That final quarter finished 22-14 to the now Scottish Champions and saw Fury’s Jack Davidson top score on 19pts – Davidson , a controversial miss from last season’s Scotland U16 team. Fury’s most consistent scorer this season, 3pt shooter Sam Owens finished on 16 with fellow 3pt specialist Nathan Cuthbert on 15. Captain Louis Smith had 15 also with Scott Lothian on 12. Fury will now look to continue their good form into the Play-Offs and cement what has been an exceptional season to date. Fury’ team for season 18-19 – Captain Louis Smith, Sam Owens, Jack Davidson, Scott Lothian, Nathan Cuthbert, Jake Cavannagh, Ben Small, Cornelius Olubalade, Jisin Joseph, Thomas Boyle, Douglas Beattie and Ellis Walker.
