Fresh off their Scottish Cup final win last weekend, the cadettes were back in what was a high pressure league fixture as they faced the Gladiators on the road and it was a stunning Dagger showing that ensured the Falkirk side stayed on course for their title showdown match with Boroughmuir Blaze at the end of March, winning 83-74 in the end.

Fury fought back from being behind by eight points going into the final period. Dagger’s driving lay-ups were key to her tally, and with a 23-6 final quarter, Fury took the game by nine points to secure the result.
