Mann Filter Counting On Sixth Man Against Energa

25.11.2010

Mann Filter Zaragoza lost the first EuroCup Women Group J meeting with Energa Torun in Poland back on November 4.

Now they'll try to avenge that setback when the teams meet in Spain on Thursday night.

The Polish outfit rode their strong home support to a 87-79 double overtime triumph.

Mann Filter were within touching distance of victory when with 11 seconds to go in the first extra period, Jelena Maksimovic buried a three-pointer to knot the contest at 73-73.

Jaklin Zlatanova then missed a potential game-winner for Zaragoza and the game went to a second overtime.

The hosts outscored Mann Filter 14-6 the rest of the way with 1,000 spectators cheering them on.

The general director of Mann Filter Zaragoza, Antonio Manero, said: "In these games, you need to feel the warmth coming from the fans and prove that we want to have European basketball in our city.

"Energa proved in Poland that with an almost full arena, you can come from behind and clinch a result and we are also convinced that we can also achieve that."
