Lady Rocks defeat Fury, go top of the league - Sep 27, 2012

The Lady Rocks soared to the top of the National League at the weekend, with a 58 - 38 win over visiting Falkirk Fury.

Toni Carvill (182-F-86) poured in a game high 18 points and Ailidh Hood contributed 14 as the Rocks continued their winning ways and home court dominance.

The Rocks have given their home support plenty to cheer about so far, but the gymnasium fell silent when Rona Corkindale slipped on a drive to the basket at the start of the third period. The forward sustained a hit to the face and was forced to sit out for the remainder of the second half.

It was unfortunate that Rona went down with the facial injury, lamented assistant coach Phil Birch.

A lot of our offence goes through Rona, but we have enough depth in our team and the other girls managed to step up and take care of business.

One of the girls who stepped up was Captain Toni Carvill, who provided most of the scoring punch in Ronas absence. She netted an impressive six points in the period to keep Fury at bay.

The Rocks showed little sign of wearing down and they held on to a 46 29 advantage heading into the final spell.

But it was Fury who came out the more aggressive side in the fourth. They pushed the ball on offence and went on a nine point scoring spree that caught the Rocks by surprise.

Leading the comeback for Falkirk was the trio of Jen Gallacher, Alicia McFadden and Debbie Primrose. Primrose was fouled on a layup attempt, and hit her first free throw to make the score 48 - 38. However, she missed on her second shot, which would have reduced Falkirks deficit to single digits.
From there, the Rocks managed to regroup and regain their composure. They piled on the pressure and pulled away from the visitors with some excellent offensive play by Toni Carvill and Ailidh Hood.

A nifty layup by youngster Taylor McKeown, capped off a ten point unanswered run that sealed the win for the Rocks.

Rocks next game is a home tie against Polonia Phoenix on Saturday, October 6, with tip-off at 12:20pm.

Starting 5 for Glasgow: Mairi MacNeil, Siobhan Moore, Rona Corkindale, Ailidh Hood, Nadele Strain

Starting 5 for Falkirk: Jen Gallacher, Alicia McFadden, Jenna Beattie, Laura Nimmo, Allie Gardner

MVP: Toni Carvill with 18 points

HOT: Ten point run to end the game on a high

NOT: Losing Rona Corkindale for the second half

Game Notes: Toni Carvill went down at the start of the second after overstretching her groin. But the Captain wasnt out for long and returned to the game a few minutes later...Fury went on a long scoring drought in the second period, until a turnaround jump shot from Laura Nimmo with 4:30 left in the half finally put the visitors on the scoreboard...Rocks played in white and Fury wore red.
