Maddaloni Beat Injury Hit Dorsten

02 November 2005

An injury depleted Dorsten suffered their third defeat of the EuroCup Women on Wednesday night, going down to Italian visitors Coconuda Maddaloni.

Anna-Christine Görg, Nicole Johnson, Kaisa Höök and Niina Laaksonen all played with niggling injuries while Lubica Schultze was unable to suit up.

Despite playing with a decimated front line, Dorsten began the game well, opening with a 6-0 run.

In a low scoring first quarter Maddaloni quickly caught up with Dorsten and the scores were tied 12-12 after 10 minutes.

An 8-2 run by Maddaloni gave the visitors a small advantage at halftime, 30-39.

Dorsten managed to stay within striking distance in the third, but the final period proved to be the decisive.

Dorsten opened the fourth quarter with 2 consecutive jump shots to cut the deficit to just 2 points, 50-52. Howver, as the game wound down, Dorsten's injury problems began to tell and they faded badly.

The Germans committed seven turnovers in the final 8 minutes and Maddaloni took advantage. The visitors outscored Dorsten 20-7 in the last phase of the game to complete a 62-75 win.

Spanish international Rosi Sanchez finished with 19 points and 8 rebounds, while Anna Vicenzetto added 15 points for Maddaloni, who completed their first win of the EuroCup Women season.
