Willis Loopen Leads New York Firemen in 99 - 88 Win Over Glasgow Scots

Tues. 9PM PST Game 1: New York Firemen 99 - Glasgow Scots 88

Once again tonight, two of our BCL teams got some action in and played a hard fought exhibition match that 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 returned from a few days off and played with their regular lineup of Devyn Smythe and Deirdre Faulds.

The game was an epic battle, full of great offensive and defensive plays. Willis Loopen showed enormous improvement from his previous matches, and his efforts were key in the Firemen's victory over their nemesis the Scots. The Scots took an early lead in the game, but the Firemen took over at about the 5 minute mark, and held a slim advantage all the way to the final buzzer.

A friendly, yet extremely intense rivalry has started to develop between these two teams, and the level of competition is improving with each match they play. DawnRose Ruby, one of our ballocki players for the Atlanta Peaches, was on hand to watch tonight's game from the bleachers and described it afterward as having been "exciting to watch." It was certainly fun to play in such an intense and well contested match.

As of tonight's games, the Glasgow Scots are 4-2 during our pre-season exhibition matches while the New York Firemen are 5-4 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!
