A great start of the day with an exciting U16 Women final had a promising follow up with the U16 Men Final.

Current Scottish Cup and League winner Boroughmuir Blaze jumped on court as favourites but St Mirren players were ready to prove themselves after a convincing victory in the play offs semi-final.

Blaze won the jump ball but a great steal by M. Amstrong followed by a 2pts shot by St Mirrens captain S. Booth put them in the lead to start the game. Blaze immediatlely answered and N. Skinner proved so with a well crafted lay up in traffic. First time-out was called by St Mirren as they tried to slow down the Blaze offensive run. The crowd was at top of their game cheering both sides as the excite grew. Coach Clearys team came back on court with intent and a two steals plus converting both opportunities to give them the edge, but B. Mullan, N. Skinner and R. Farmer teamed up to put Blaze back on track, finishing the quarter 13-10.

Blaze came out strong in the second quarter with a precise and fast paced offense gaining a 10pts difference on the scoreboard with 4 minutes to play in the quarter. Blaze took control of the game with spot on finishing around the basket. St Mirren didnt stop looking for shot though and kept themselves in the hunt. Both sides had a high turnover rate due to the intense defence being played by both sides but Blaze being more accurate in their finishing. We reached half time with Blaze infront 29-18

We started the third with St Mirren putting full court pressure on the ball and both teams struggling to convert their open looks at the basket. The points of the second half went to St Mirren as C.Jackson converted but S.Stott took his chance and quickly answered back with 2pts for Blaze. 5 minutes into the third quarter the level of pressure from both sides increased but Blaze maintained the lead 32-26. R.Farmer and B.Mullan helped their team bask to a 10 points lead with 3 minutes to the end of the quarter. St Mirren however, werent ready to give up, M. Amstrong led the come back and we saw A. Mathieson showcasing his skills with 2 threes in a row to tie the game at 36-36 as the buzzer sounded to end the quarter.

A promising fourth quarter started with the teams playing at the intense pace they finished the third, with both teams fighting for every ball! M. Amstrong for St Mirren put his team in the lead for the first time in the last quarter 48-50 with 4 minutes remaining in the last quarter. Both teams stepped up putting pressure on the ball. St Mirren forced Blaze into errors and with Blaze strugglingh to finish under pressure to points started to dry up. St Mirren moved to zone but Blaze got their eye in once again taking the lead. St Mirren stopped the clock needing the ball back but Blaze players held their nerve on the line to ensure that the trophy would be heading back to The Crag. The final score 62-52.
