St Mirren West College Scotland 94 vs 50 Glasgow City

The last week of the regular season saw what would turn out to be a facile victory over the winless Glasgow City. St Mirren West College Scotland Junior Men were already assured a second place finish and boosted by a convincing win last week against West Lothian Wolves took the early advantage with four points from defence stalwart Louis McLean, the first a rebound from Ross Piggot and the second an easy layup. The opening rounds of the quarter were scrappy and Glasgow took a surprise 8-6 lead thanks to two three pointers. This seemed to shake St Mirren into action with Brad Low and captain Jack Thompson scoring six between them to edge the Saints in front.  With Mikey Irvine’s introduction to the game a further 7 points were added and the Saints took effective control of the quarter ending it 20-13 in front.

St Mirren continued to dominate possession in the second quarter and this encounter was shaping as a mirror image to when these two sides last met.  With points shared amongst all of the players the second quarter was the when the rout of Glasgow really started.  A superb solo effort by Jack Thomson  to bring up 41 points being the highlight of the quarter.  A half time score of 44-29 to St Mirren flattered Glasgow, who could count themselves lucky that the Saints weren’t as clinical as they could be.

The third quarter saw St Mirren continue to dominate proceedings.  City had nothing in response to the Saints movement and free scoring a couple of three pointers from Euan Birch and another from Mikey Irvine and  a further lay up from Stuart Berry meant the game was effectively won by St Mirren before they swapped the whole team for the final five minutes of the third. Again the points rattle in before the third quarter ended with St Mirren 72 -41 up.

Coach Stevenson took the opportunity to rotate the team again in the fourth quarter, which will be useful practice for the forthcoming play offs.  Final quarter points were added by Euan Birch, Stuart Berry, Mark Sanderson and Louis Mclean, before  Jack Thomson, Brad Low and Mikey Irvine finally hammered home the points for the Saints to romp to a comfortable 94-50 victory.
