GAME REPORT

15.01.2013
Kataja Come Back To Edge Ventspils

14. Petri Virtanen (Joensuun Kataja)
Petri Virtanen led the way for Joensuun Kataja with a game-high 22 points

Johnell Smith came up with the decisive free throws at the finish as Joensunn Kataja came from 17 points down to edge out BK Ventspils 80-78 in their EuroChallenge Group I opener.

Ventspils, who had a 19-game win streak across three competitions snapped at the weekend, looked set to get straight back to winning ways as they stormed into a 40-23 lead by the time Folarin Campbell sank a free throw midway through the second quarter.

But the hosts came storming back and had taken a narrow lead by the end of the third quarter.

As time ticked down at the finish, it was Kataja who were nursing a narrow advantage, leading 78-74 on Jerald Fields' jump shot with 55 seconds left.

Martins Meiers went to the line for Ventspils and hit both his shots before Sandis Valters capitalised on a Petri Virtanen turnover to tie it up with 37 seconds left.

Meiers fouled Smith to send him to the line with 24 ticks left, and though he could only split his free throws he was soon back at the charity stripe after Donald Sim's turnover, again making one of two to leave Kataja narrowly ahead.

But it proved enough for victory after Campbell's late shot missed and Jermaine Flowers grabbed the rebound.

Virtanen led Kataja with 22 points while Smith had 16 and Flowers 15.

Campbell finished with 19 for Ventspils while Meiers had 18, Sims 11 and Valters 10.

COACH QUOTES

15.01.2013
Quotes Joensuun Kataja vs. BK Ventspils

Kataja head coach Jukka Toijala:
"In first half we were one step behind at both ends and Ventspils got their lead quite easily. During the second quarter we got some defensive stops and Virtanen got us back into the game with his offensive game. I'm proud once again how our team fought back despite trailing by 17 points."

Kataja player Petri Virtanen:
"At the beging we just weren't ready to match-up with the opponent's intensity. This game reminded a lot of our qualification game against Aliaga Petkim and therefore we knew that we can make a comeback and still win a game."

Ventspils head coach Roberts Stelmahers:
"First of all, congrats to Kataja for the win. Overall, I am quite pleased about the way we executed our offensive game but at the defensive end we made too many mistakes. For example they got too many wide open outside shots and some easy penetrations to the basket."

COACH QUOTES

15.01.2013
Quotes Joensuun Kataja vs. BK Ventspils

Kataja head coach Jukka Toijala:
"In first half we were one step behind at both ends and Ventspils got their lead quite easily. During the second quarter we got some defensive stops and Virtanen got us back into the game with his offensive game. I'm proud once again how our team fought back despite trailing by 17 points."

Kataja player Petri Virtanen:
"At the beging we just weren't ready to match-up with the opponent's intensity. This game reminded a lot of our qualification game against Aliaga Petkim and therefore we knew that we can make a comeback and still win a game."

Ventspils head coach Roberts Stelmahers:
"First of all, congrats to Kataja for the win. Overall, I am quite pleased about the way we executed our offensive game but at the defensive end we made too many mistakes. For example they got too many wide open outside shots and some easy penetrations to the basket."
