Last Quarter Road Victory For Dynamo

18.01.2006

Dynamo Moscow left it to the last quarter to stage a comeback that would see them beat WislaCan-Pack 72-65 in a EuroLeague Women and take their record in Group C to 7/3.

The Russians started the match well but then lost control and it was only a  tremendous fourth-quarter rally that earned them the spoils.

Moscow made a quickfire start with Diana Taurasi scoring five points as the visitors raced into a 7-0 lead.

That stirred the Krakow team into life and by the end of the first period the game was level at 16-16.

Dynamo started the second period well to go 24-18 up but the game remained finely balanced with the score 38-37 in favour of the Russians at the halfway mark.

At the start of the third, eight unanswered points from Wisla saw the Poles seize control and Taurasi's three-pointer - the last score of the period - saw the Russians trail 56-52.

But Dynamo took the last period 20-9 to prevail.

Taurasi was top scorer with 18 points and seven rebounds with no other Dynamo player posting double digits.

Iva Perovanovic poured in 17 points for Wisla while Monika Krawiec (11), Anna De Forge (11) and Jelena Skerovic (10) all impressed in a losing cause.
