Final countdown as Tigers on track for title tilt

GLASGOW are in the final of the SGB Championship play-offs.

They beat Somerset 93-87 on aggregate to make it to their second final in five seasons.

A 48-42 defeat at Highbridge tonight was enough when coupled with last night’s 51-39 win against the Rebels at the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium.

The winners of the other semi-final between Leicester Lions and Redcar Bears now await – with their ties taking place over the next 10 days.

Boss Cami Brown said: “We deserve to be in the final. We only finished second in the league by a point – and we had a silly home meeting where we lost included in that.

“It’s great to be in the final but we’re not going into it to lose it.

“A couple of guys weren’t feeling great health-wise tonight, and there was a point where we were getting a bit nervous, but everybody chipped in and they were absolutely superb.

“We had a mix of emotions tonight – nerves and excitement – but overall we’re stoked to be in the final. I’m so happy for Peter and Gerry Facenna with all they’ve put into the club.

“The fans have also been superb this year, they’ve backed us all the way, and it’s great we can give them another home meeting to look forward to – and the biggest one of them all.

“It would be tremendous to finish the season off by winning that title.”

It was a far from ideal start for the Tigers tonight as the Rebels clawed back half of the 12-point deficit in just five races, with a shock 5-1 in the opening heat over Craig Cook and Mikkel B Andersen.
