Tornadoes blow Kings off throne

Ayrshire Tornadoes ended Edinburgh Kings’ monopoly on domestic silverware with a magnificent display in the Scottish Cup Final, Euan Campbell’s side thoroughly deserving their comfortable 80-63 win at Meadowbank which was built on a tenacious defensive display.

The Citadel outfit emerged with absolute confidence, reeling off 18 straight points in a five minute first quarter spell from which Edinburgh never truly recovered.

Ayrshire giant Tom Pearson kept Kings’ front line at bay en route to a game-best 31 points and he had ample support from brother Andy who pushed the underdogs 34-16 ahead midway the second period. While the Cup holders closed the deficit to 45-30 at half-time, they never came any closer than 12 in the second half as Edinburgh’s dreams of a third consecutive double haul faded away. 

St. Mirren added the senior women’s Cup to their league crown with a comfortable 56-44 defeat of Midlothian Saints. 

The Paisley outfit, victors for the first time in their history, seized control with a 6-0 flurry in the first quarter. 

Young star Angela Taylor produced a superb defensive display and after slipping 31-23 behind at half-time, Midlothian simply could not respond despite a team-best haul of 16 from Leanne Stupart.

The Linwood club also added three under-age titles to their haul.
