New York Firemen Ballocki Team Blazes to 119 - 90 Win Over Glasgow Scots

Wed. 8PM PST Game 1: New York Firemen 119 - Glasgow Scots 90

It's official... the New York Firemen are on fire in the Ballocki Champions League! Tonight's victory over the Scots makes it 5 wins in a row for the Firemen! Tonight's hard fought BCL exhibition match was held at the new Ballocki Stadium located in the Celestial Game Tower game park inside SL.

The primary players involved tonight included some of our league's all-stars. Willis Loopen and yours truly Dude Gilruth participated for the New York Firemen while the Glasgow Scots played with their regular lineup of Devyn Smythe and Deirdre Faulds. DawnRose Ruby was also on hand for the Atlanta Peaches who had the night off. Special thanks to DawnRose for taking some action photos during tonight's Firemen vs Scots match.

The game was well contested and hard fought. The Scots scored first and were leading 14-13 after the first minute. But the Firemen quickly rallied and had gained a 24-22 lead with 8 minutes remaining and then pushed out to a 35-24 lead with 7 minutes to go. From there, the Firemen built and maintained a steady lead while playing tough defense and held on in the end for the win.

As of tonight's games, the Glasgow Scots are 4-3 during our pre-season exhibition matches while the New York Firemen are 6-4 and the Atlanta Peaches are 0-3. The London Lions team has yet to play.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the stadium tonight to participate in and watch the games!!!

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!
