Soho Wealth Scottish Senior Woman's Div1 Championship

Fury Woman recorded their second win of the Championship season and the victory over Glasgow University has boosted them to No 5 in Scotland's power rankings. This is no mean feat for Fury who lost key players at the end of the season and have re-built their team with a number of younger players adding to their more experienced group. Fury continued to structure their game on full court pressing defence and led in a low scoring opening quarter 13-9 against the Glasgow University side. A second period saw Fury move to 26pts at the half but hold the student side to a mere 2pts giving the Falkirk side a 15pt lead at the half. A higher scoring 3rd period by both teams saw the Sony sponsored side take the stanza 25-16 and go into the final quarter 24pts clear. The game finished with a 20pt win to Fury and a further move up the table. Top scorer was former Scotland player Alicia McFadden with 11, with 11 Fury players on the score sheet. Junior Abby Rutter again performed well with 8pts and Cadette Emily Melrose also had a strong game with 7 personal. Fury had 32pts off the bench which shows the positive team play of the side who worked hard as a team at both ends of the floor. Fury Headcoach John Bunyan commented to Herald Sport after the game – ‘ This was a game where once again our younger players as well as our more experienced players delivered. There is an enthusiasm in the team that means we bring a lot of energy to the court and players are playing at maximum effort all the time. We know we will struggle in a half court game so we have to really go out right from the start with our up temp style and play it right till the final whistle. The players have all embraced this and we just need to keep improving in what we do.’
