Czechs Into Final


The Czech Republic set up a mouth-watering Termosteps U16 European Championship Women final with Spain after cruising through their semi-final clash with Serbia & Montenegro.

Katerina Bartonova was outstanding in Saturday's 81-68 win, the point guard scoring 17 points, three assists and four steals.

There was never any danger of the Czechs not making it six straight victories as they took an early stranglehold to lead 22-11 going into the second quarter.

And it was all but over by the start of the fourth, with Serbia & Montenegro 74-51 behind before their opponents took their foot off the gas.

Serbia & Montenegro's Jovna Popovic had the consolation of being the game's top scorer with 18 points.

Something will have to give in Sunday's final, with Spain also having won six games in a row after scraping through against Lithuania in the other semi-final.
