GAME REPORT


Stellar Spain Sink Dutch With Sixth Win

7. Maria Arrojo (Spain)
Maria Arrojo finished with 19 points, eight rebounds and three assists for the table-topping Spanish

Spain are yet to taste the disappointment of losing at the U18 European Championship Women in Vukovar after maintaining their proud unbeaten record with a 70-54 success against the Netherlands to finish first in Group E.

The Spanish secured their sixth win with a scorching acceleration either side of the last quarter break when they increased the tempo and slipped through the gears to stunning effect.

An entertaining game had been hanging in the balance for 28 minutes when Spain came alive in a big way to leave the Dutch flagging.

Down 45-41, a three-pointer by playmaker Leticia Romero sparked a spectacular 22-3 burst as Spain flipped the game their way in a superb spell.

The offence of Netherlands evaporated for seven minutes in a repeat of their late struggles against Russia in the previous game, although they did at least find a few scores in the closing moments.

Emese Hof grabbed 12 points and seven rebounds for the Dutch but they had to settle for third place in the Group.

Maria Arrojo excelled for the table-topping Spanish with 19 points, eight rebounds and three assists, whilst Adriana Pujol and Leticia Romero each added 16 points to the final total.
