AYR Storm's Senior Women finished their SLBA League season with a win over Renfrew Rocks at Kyle Academy.

With guard Davee Sang, missing through injury, head coach, Lynsey Muir, was left with a squad of eight players to play with.

Muir's young team started quickly, and the team's top scorer, Rebecca Morrison, bagged 12 first quarter points, ably assisted by Erin Jones with eight points of her own.

This saw the home side take a 23-9 lead into the second quarter.

Morrison and Jones continued in the same vein, finishing off some fine team moves.

The two players not only helped keep the scoreboard ticking over, but their strong rebounding on defense kept the visitors' chances to a minimum.

Storm took a 40-19 lead into the interval.

Renfrew came out stronger after the break, but although the points weren't coming as easy to Storm, they continued to play in the same manner that had proved successful in the first half, with the club's new signing this season, Georgia Gabriel, causing havoc at both ends of the court.

Particularly pleasing was the form of the club's three U16 players, Petra Kurcikova, Eve Meechan and Abbie Middleton, all of whom have benefited greatly from the opportunity to play in the Senior league this season.

Kurcikova's ball-handling has been exceptional all-season long, and her 14 points ensured her a place on the league's top 10 scoring charts. Middleton (9 points) continues to impress at this level, at the tender age of just 14.

After a close third quarter, Ayr came out with all guns blazing in the final period and ran up a further 28 points, capped by a "collector's item" three-pointer from Jones. The home side ran out 85-47 winners, with Morrison 33pts and Jones 23pts, both with season-highs.

Coach Muir said: "It's been a tough season for our Senior Women's team, but I was pleased with the girls' attitude tonight. It was great to finish our league season on a high'.

The season isn't quite over for the team yet, as they have the small matter of the SLBA Cup Final to play on April 30.

The league champions Glasgow Fever lie in waiting for the Storm girls.
