GAME REPORT


Rivas Rock Wisla In Krakow

Essence Carson (Rivas Ecopolis)
Essence Carson and Rivas Ecopolis rolled to another win, this time at the expense of Wisla

Rivas Ecopolis won for the fourth game in a row in the EuroLeague Women by blowing out Wisla Can-Pack Krakow 65-50 in Poland.

Essence Carson had 16 points and Asjha Jones poured in 14 while also grabbing 11 rebounds for Rivas, who lost their first two games in Group C but have looked unbeatable since.

Both sides are now 4-2.

The crucial run came late in the third quarter after a Nicole Powell three-ball for Wisla cut the Rivas lead to 42-40.

Jelena Dubljevic and Carson hit jumpers to close the frame for Rivas, and at the start of the fourth quarter, Dubljevic split a pair of free-throws before teammate Elisa Aguilar buried a jumper.

Dubljevic, who only signed for Rivas recently, added another jumper to take the lead to 51-40.

Wisla twice pulled to within five points in the fourth quarter but got no closer.

Powell had 20 points and seven rebounds in defeat.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Wisla Can-Pack vs. Rivas Ecopolis

Rivas Head Coach MIGUEL MARTINEZ:
"I am happy:) We played excellent on defence and our offensive players did what I expected. Every Player contributed to the success, I think it was a very good game."

Wisla Head Coach JOSE HERNANDEZ:
"Well we played not very bad defense but it is impossible to win with such a teriblle offensive game. In the third quarter we were only 2 points down but two stupid turnovers decided that Rivas got 6 point advantage. I think it was the moment that decided that we lost the game. Congratulations for the Madrid Team. I want to thank a lot to our fans who were excellent but we were not able to repay by winning - sorry."

Rivas Player ESSENCE CARSON:
"We played very good defense and in offense we were patient enough and every player was helping to get the win. I do hope that we will continue winning games in ELW that are in front of us.

Wisla shooting guard ANKE DE MONDT:
"We played a terrible game on offense. You can not win where there is no "team" on the floor but individuals."
