Adam
Hammerschmidt
SONY CENTRE FURY 63 - EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY 46

18 pts from centre Ross Gibson (201-C-94) and 16 from Austrian Adam Hammerschmidt (192-F-94) accounted for more than half of Fury's points tally, on a night, when despite their execution being at a season low, they still took a big 17pt win at the Mariner against student side -Edinburgh University and maintained their position at the top of the Championship table.
Add to that a loss to Edinburgh Kings against Storm, now puts Fury on one loss with 3 games to play, 2 games clear of the chasing pack of Blaze, Kings and St.Mirren who are all on all on 3 losses.
The first half saw Fury hold the visitors to a mere 15pts. This was the result off some solid defence by Fury but mainly the poor finishing by the Edinburgh based side. Fury themselves had a season low first half tally with only 29, tem of which came from Hammerschmidt. The third and fourth periods saw little between the teams as they both continued to play well below their best. Indeed Fury had to focus to the final whistle as the students pressed and tried to make a late comeback in the final minutes.
Fury Headcoach John Bunyan told Heraldsport -
' This was probably the worst match of the season for our fans to watch but with a 17pt win and a step nearer the title we have to be pleased with the result overall. This was a team that last week, took our nearest rivals - Edinburgh Kings to 2 points, so for us to finish as we did, we will take confidence into the Cup Final next week against Blaze, particularly from our defensive performance.
They never gave up and finished strongly with a press and upped their intensity in the final minutes. Their style is not unlike Blaze, so we used in particular that last spell of the game to work on some situations that we may encounter next week. Off the bench I felt Connor Martin and Ben Chok moved nearer to what we want from them and it was good to see Rory Wilson getting into our side after recovering from his double liver transplant - he is a great role model to anyone facing adversity.'
