Keith Bunyan
Probably one of the most eagerly awaited finals, Falkirk started stronger of the two going on a 5-0 run, before St Mirren got off the mark and back into the game and started to assert their authority. It was pretty evenly fought throughout the quarter with a couple of lead changes, most noteably when Keith Bunyan (191-G-77) hit a big three on the two minute mark putting Fury a point ahead. St Mirren did well to force a 24 second violation with a few seconds left on the clock at the end of the first, but Stuart Glasss men finishing the quarter a point behind Falkirk, the score standing at 20-19.

The start of the second period was just as evenly matched, both teams playing very tough defence and working hard to get inside, Roni Gordon a noticeable influence in the key. But at the other end Christopher Cleary (200-C-88) was on form, shooting one hundred percent from the free throw line, not missing any of his eight attempts. As the quarter went on the tempo of the game rose, with temperatures rising as well. St Mirren did well to keep their cool though and with a minute to go and four points ahead Nick Collins took a great three point attempt, followed by a Scotty Russell free throw, but the big hitter was Kieran Lynch with a three pointer on the buzzer, putting St Mirren nine points ahead and sending the Saints bench into uproar!

The third quarter started off well for the Saints, going nine points ahead before Fury coach John Bunyan incurred a technical foul, giving St Mirren two free throws and possession. Colin Railley converted both to give the men from Paisley their biggest lead of their game, eleven points to the good. A high point of the quarter being Fraser Glasss bounce pass, through the legs of a Fury player for Christopher Cleary to convert. Falkirk were never out of the game though and kept piling on the defensive pressure, Jonny Bunyan trying to spearhead the offense for Clark Eriksson Fury. St Mirren however went on a huge scoring run and gave themselves a twenty point lead with three minutes still to go in the third. After Jonny Bunyan earned Fury their second technical foul of the game and sending Saints to the line for four free throws, St Mirren went on to end the third quarter twenty three points ahead, the score St Mirren (67) (44) Clark Eriksson Fury.


With a lot of points to claw back Fury started the fourth with a hard press, but it was broken twice by Christopher Cleary with a reverse lay up and Nick Collins with a drive to the basket, giving Saints an 8-0 run at the start of the fourth and final period. A bench technical again from Fury sent Nick Collins to the line who converted both, taking them ahead by a massive twenty nine points. Falkirk fought back though, playing tough defense, and taking the difference back down to twenty points, putting some pressure on St Mirren who lost Fraser Glass with three minutes to go in the fourth after receiving his fifth foul. It wasnt to be though, and after a tense last few minutes St Mirren eventually ran out champions. Final score: St Mirren (88) (68) Clark Eriksson Fury
