The Latvians executed their attacks extremely well in the second quarter hitting long range jumpers as well as scoring points from the paint. Gala was trailing by thirteen at the break and each attempt to start a comeback in the third quarter was failed by the confident play of Valmiera.

The Azerbaijan champion set the tone for the fourth and decisive quarter. They cut the lead to three points after a three pointer from Eugeniy Melinic.

But the same player comitted an offensive foul on the next possession and Valmiera extended the lead to seven points.
