In a fantastic final weekend for the Club, both Senior teams were successful in the 2013 Play-off finals at the Lagoon Arena in Paisley.
The Kats romped to a 82-47 win against the home team, St Mirren. Top scorer was Hannah Peacock with a massive 40 point total, assisted by Shauna O'Connor and Tracey Phillips with 11 apiece, although all the bench managed to get on the court during the game.
The Kings v Fury game was altogether a more tense affair. The final winning points being scored by Edgars Rekis from the free throw line in the dying seconds of the game. Edgars also finished as top scorer on the day with 25 points, followed by Lee Reilly on 19.
Congratulations to both teams and all the coaches for doing the "double"!
The Junior Mens Division 2 League was also concluded at the weekend, with the Kings 'B' team finishing on a high with wins against Edinburgh Lions (70-42) and Grampian Flyers (76-59). The boys were crowned league champions with an amazing 17 game unbeaten run.
Well done guys!
Both our Senior Men and Senior Women are looking to finish their seasons on a high by completing the double - Scottish Cup and League Play-offs.
With the Cups already under their belts, the play-off finals take place on Saturday 27th April at the Lagoon Leisure Centre Arena, Paisley.
First up are the Women who take on St Mirren Reid Kerr College, with tip-off at 5:00pm. Having finshed one place above the Paisley team and with four wins already this season they must fancy their chances for the double.
The Men's game follows immediately after at 7:15pm, when the Kings take on their fiercest rivals Clark Eriksson Fury. With Fury taking the League and Kings the Cup this will go some way the determining who takes bragging rights as the top team this season.
This game will also be the final Kings performance for All Star nominated Edgars Rekis (pictured above) who will be returning home to Latvia after the end of the season. Lets hope the team can send him home on a winning note.
The Junior Men's Kings B team also feature this weekend in their final games of the season against Edinburgh Lions (11:00) and Grampian Flyers (13:00). Both games are almost at home - just up the road at Holy Rood High School on Sunday 28th April.
Table topping Kings, with the second division league already in the bag, should be able to relax a bit more than usual and enjoy their games!
Very best of luck to all teams in the final week of the National League season.
The 200 Club draw for April was made at Portobello this week and the winner was Catherine Reid. This time the prize was again worth £148.50.
