GAME REPORT


Wisla Edge Out Kosice To Tie At The Top

Wisla Can-Pack are right back in the race to finish top of the pile in Group A of EuroLeague Women after they claimed a crucial 66-61 home win against Good Angels Kosice to ensure a three way tie at the top of the standings.

Once again Erin Phillips was instrumental for the Polish team and followed up her Player Of The Week performance with another impressive contribution from downtown making the difference in a tight game.

Without her trio of three-pointers, things could have been different for the home team who as expected, had to work really hard even though Good Angels were without the hugely influential Zuzana Zirkova.

Defensively it was imperative that Wisla Can-Pack kept a lid on the other two big dangers in for Kosice in the form of Charde Houston and Candice Dupree and that is exactly what they did.

There was nothing between the teams during the first thirty minutes of action as a triple by Ivana Jalcova for the visitors put the game firmly into the balance at 47-47.

With just under five minutes left of the game, the home team had edged ahead 56-55 and they managed to hold Kosice to just three further scores which was vital while fittingly Phillips completed an ‘And-1' play with 90 seconds left to effectively see her team to the win.

Ewelina Kobryn and Janell Burse had solid games in the paint for Wisla Can-Pack while Lucia Kupcikova top scored for the visitors with 14 points.

Good Angels Kosice head coach Stefan Svitek:
"It was a very tough game. We came to win but we knew that we came to play against a very good team and in Krakow, where the fans are the sixth player of the home team. We played very hard defence and did our best to break the offence actions of Wisla Can-Pack. In the last minutes we did not find the way to have the open positions and we lost. Congratulations to Wisla and to the super-fans."
