Halcon Avenida Edge Pécs To Advance To First Ever Final Four
Halcon Avenida emerged from a tense finish to book their first ever place in a EuroLeague Women Final Four with an 81-76 win over MiZo Pecs 2010 on Friday night in Hungary.

Having routed Pecs 85-63 at home in Salamanca on Tuesday night, Avenida were favourites to progress, but it proved to be hard work against the determined Hungarians, who pushed them until the final seconds.

Avenida Pound Pecs In Salamanca Masterclass

Avenida, who shocked CSKA Moscow in double overtime in the deciding third game of their Eighth-Finals showdown, won 85-63 and will now attempt to sweep the Hungarian giants in Pecs on Friday.
