Tornadoes out to blow up a Storm - Mar 20, 2012

Troon Tornadoes aim to build on the feel-good factor in Ayrshire sport by making their mark on the senior men's Scottish League play-offs which open this weekend.
In the wake of Kilmarnock's shock football win over Celtic in the final of the Scottish Communities League Cup, Troon travel to face Glasgow University in the first leg of the Final 8's.
The Ayrshire side will be without Johnny Petit, injured in a local league match, and head coach Tom Campbell expects it to be a close affair.
'We finished fourth in the league and they were just one place below us in fifth,' he outlines.
'We beat them at our place and they beat us when they had home advantage so I expect it to be close over two legs. They have been playing well offensively but we have done well defensively so it will be interesting.'
Troon almost pulled off an upset win over Clark Eriksson Fury in the league earlier this month which shows what they are capable of.
'Our problem this season is that our tallest player is just 6'5' so when we play against teams who have big guys in them, then we can find it difficult,' continues Campbell, 'For us to make an impact in the play-offs then we need to really bring our top game.'
St Mirren Reid Kerr College have been given a 'bye' through the opening round of play-off fixtures with their scheduled opponents Stirling Knights unable to fulfil the fixture.
'I would prefer to have had a couple of matches going into the Final 4's, rather than going in cold,' reasons head coach Stuart Glass.
'If matches go to form, then we'd expect to face Clark Eriksson Fury and that should be a tight match.
'We lost to them twice in the league but beat them in the Scottish Cup final so there's not much between the teams.
'I think the league has been tighter throughout this season - certainly at the top and in the middle of the table - and there have been a lot of competitive games. That can only be good for the game and I expect the play-offs to be close.'

Grangemouth Sports Centre will host the semi-finals of the U18 play-offs - the Final 4's - at both Under-18 and Under-16 level.
St Mirren have teams in three of the four but miss out on the last four of the men's Under-16 competition after losing 73-39 to Boroughmuir Blaze last weekend.
Boroughmuir face Highland Bears, second in the Under-16 league this season, and the other tie is between City of Edinburgh Kings and Clark Eriksson Fury.
St Mirren are favourites for the girls' Under-16 event having won their league and they take on Clark Eriksson Fury in their semi-final.
In the women's Under-18 play-offs, St Mirren face City of Edinburgh Kool Kats and, in the men's age-group, the Paisley club meet Clark Eriksson Fury.
