U16 Women Youth Play Offs Final

St Mirren Reid Kerr College v Glasgow Rocks


On a snowy morning at the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley the two teams open the day of basketball with a real thriller.

As the faces flashed up on the big screen and the players entered the court, both teams and fan bases looked ready for the challenge.

We experienced a slow start for both teams with Rocks showing a greater strength on defence as St Mirren looked for gaps to exploit. Rocks captain, C.Lamb had to leave the floor after just a couple of minutes due to a injury bringing E.Ruddy on court who energised Rocks defence and this was a key moment as Rocks began to capitalise on their hard work. The ladies Rocks lead the game after first three minutes of the quarter but young N.Davidson for St Mirren showed great tenasity and tried to drive on her team as she helped level the score at 8-8 with 3min to go in the first quarter. Showing strength in the key, N.Gilbert for St Mirren managed to help her team take the lead for the first time in the quarter with only 5 seconds to go. End of the quarter score 16-14 for St Mirren.

Both teams came on court stronger for the second quarter with St Mirrens Davidson scoring a convincing 2 points basket as soon as the ball was back in play. Rocks however were not to be out done after such a good first quarter, and K.Ross made her point with a quick answer to Davidsons basket. E.Ruddy and T. Lui took charge on defence for Rocks and started to make the strong St Mirren offence struggle for the first time in this second quarter. With three minutes to go, E. Johnstone scored a clean 3pointer for St Mirren quickly answered by K Ross putting another 2pts on the Rocks scoreboard. C. Lamb jumped back on court to support her teams defence and lead their offence. E. Ruddy leveled the score again at 23-23 and McGoohan scored a long 2 to put Rocks on the lead for the first time in this quarter. St Mirren were relentless in offence but Rocks pressure defence managed to convert two of their steals into points leaving at half time with a 23-27 score for Rocks.

After an incredible competitive first half, both teams came back on court with coaches and players demanding more! St Mirren kept hussling in offence while Rocks continued using their defensive pressure. St Mirrens captain A.Mitchell scored the first points of the quarter but Rocks answered back converting two fast break steals in a row. It was 26-35 to Rocks when coach L.Lang asked for a time out. F.Harris took the lead for St Mirren in the third and impressed the public with a fantastic floater, the scoreboard reading 30-41 at the end of the third quarter.

Glasgow went on a run led by E.Ruddy with 6 points at the start of the fourth. St.Mirren struggled to contain a Rocks side brimming with confidence as the Rocks stepped up again leading by 20pts with 2 minutes to goWith the clock ticking down A.Mitchell pushed them on with quick 2 points and C Dewar forced a last minute error to make the final score 42-58 for Rocks. Rocks finished on a high with a noisy celebration and the support of the fans.

The 2013 U16 Women Play Off winner is. Glasgow Ladies Rocks!
