09 August 2006

Sweden took advantage of their inside superiority to beat Bulgaria on day two of quarter-final round action from the Termosteps U16 European Championship Women Division B.

Sweden out-rebounded Bulgaria 53-36 in a 70-45 victory.

They also held Bulgaria to 27% shooting from the field including a miserable 4/22 from three-point range.

Sweden took advantage of a red hot start to the second period to establish a large lead. They hit six consecutive shots to start the quarter, including three from outside the arc, to open up a 28-13 lead after 13 minutes.

Frida Fogdemark was in particularly devestating form as she buried three three-pointers in a 13-4 Swedish run.

The lead ballooned to over 20 points in the third quarter allowing the Swedish head coach to get all of his players into the game.

Fogdemark led Sweden with 13 points, while Cleopatra Forsman Goga had 12 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals.
