GAME REPORT


Kosice Win At Beretta Famila To Stay Perfect

Maxima Broker Kosice won for the third time in as many games in Wednesday's triumph at Beretta Famila to continue their unbeaten start to the EuroLeague Women.

Sidney Spencer tore apart the Schio team with 25 points and Liron Cohen weighed in with 18 in a 76-60 victory.

Germany international Linda Frohlich contributed 11 points and seven boards for Kosice, who lead Group D, while the Italian outfit dropped to 1-2.

Schio led 28-21 midway through the second quarter but the Slovakian team stormed back with two Frohlich free throws sparking an 11-0 run.

The home side was dazed, and though they briefly reclaimed the lead at the start of the second half, Kosice were far more impressive and outscored them 22-9 in the third quarter to take command for good.

Laura Macchi had 17 points for Beretta Famila, who were out-rebounded 43-34.

The visitors were 10 of 24 (41.6%) from long range compared to five of 17 (29.4%) for the Italians.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Beretta Schio vs. Broker Kosice

Sandro Orlando, Beretta Schio coach:

"Kosice played a great game. Their shooting was good in the the third quarter which decided the match. We aren't at our best at the moment. Braxton came back from the United States today, and Martinez will be ready maybe in ten days. Home losses are terrible but today was only our third match, so we stil have a chance to grab one of the top four places in the group."

Raffaella Masciadri, Beretta Schio player:

"Despite our efforts, we lost an important game. Unfortunately we had too many injuries in this first part of the season, and we can't play hard during the week."

Stefan Svitek, Broker Kosice coach:

"I'm very happy for this victory. Schio is a great team and winning in this arena is not so simple. We played not so well in the first half, while in the second our defense was more aggressive and we took control of the match. Now we lead the group, it's a great result."

Linda Frohlich, Broker Kosice player:

"I'm really proud of my teammates. We began the match with a lot of attention. We did exactly what our instructions were before the match. Schio is a good team and is always difficult to win at their home."
