Slovakia Finish On A High


U18 Women

Although they were already sure of their presence in Division A of the U18 European Championship Women next year, Slovakia fought hard from the very beginning of the game with Ukraine, and cruised all the way to the end for a 62-52 win.

The Slovaks had a flying start and led 17-6 after the first ten minutes of the game.

Ukraine tried to climb back into the game, but the opponents used a solid third quarter to enter the last period with a 13-point advantage, 50-37.

The Ukrainians were never a real threat to their opponents, and it was an easy ride for the Slovaks till the end.

Barbora Balintova led all scorers with 19 points and Angelika Slamova added 15 of her own for the winners.

Oleksandra Chek scored 19 points for Ukraine, while Olga Krayevsak had a superb game with 16 points, 11 rebounds and six assists.
