GAME REPORT


Poland Register Moral Boosting Win

Sweden sustained their first defeat of the U16 European Championship for Women as they were edged 46-40 by Poland on Saturday.

The result though bears no significance in the Group standings as they are certain to finish first.

Magdalena Szajtauer had 13 rebounds and 9 points as the young Poles, already destined for the relegation round, picked up a moral boosting win after a scrappy contest in Group A.

A 9-0 run in the first quarter gave Poland the upper hand and - after taking a 22-17 advantage by half-time - they held onto their lead until early in the fourth period.

Sara Taxen converted on the break to put Sweden 38-37 ahead 7:04 left but Angelika Stankiewicz hit back with a three-pointer which proved decisive, forcing Sweden to foul and allowing Poland to seal victory from the line.

Regan Magarity had 10 points and 11 boards for the Swedes who failed to gain a single free-throw as their opponents went 16/26.
