Ballocki Champions League Saturday Night Main Event Recap

Tonight, the BCL returned to action with 2 major exhibition matches that were held at the new Ballocki Stadium located in the Celestial Game Tower game park inside SL.

The results of the games are as follows:

Sat. 8PM PST Game 1: Glasgow Scots 104 - New York Firemen 83
Sat. 9PM PST Game 2: Glasgow Scots 80 - New York Firemen 79

The primary players involved included some of our league's all-stars: Deirdre Faulds and Devyn Smythe anchored the Glasgow Scots while Tanya Rubble and yours truly Dude Gilruth participated for the New York Firemen. The games were both intense matches, especially the nail bitingly close 80-79 defensive struggle that closed out the action for the night.

In that game, the Firemen broke out to a slight early lead, held sway for most of the 10 minute game, but fell behind just during the last minute of action. The Firemen made a last second attempt to score a 2-point goal to retake the lead, but Deirdre Faulds made a huge defensive play for the Scots which sealed the victory in the closing seconds. It was truly an epic match. Well played on both sides.

As of tonight's games, the Glasgow Scots are 4-1 during our pre-season exhibition matches while the New York Firemen are 1-4. The London Lions and Atlanta Peaches teams have yet to play.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the stadium tonight to participate in and watch the games!!! Don't forget, fearless sports reporter Senban Babii was on hand a couple of nights this week to document the action for the SL newspaper the Alphaville Herald (formerly the SL Herald). That article should be coming soon, so be sure to check out their website for the paper.

Well, tonight's main event is in the books, but don't forget that the Ballocki Stadium is now open 24/7 for free practice and scrimmages any time you want to stop by there to play. We will also be hosting more BCL league matches (mostly in the 8PM SL time frame) soon, so we hope to see you soon at Ballocki Stadium in the Celestial Game Tower game park inside of the Second Life virtual world!
