Skrzecz Disappointment

Polish coach Roman Skrzecz is extremely disappointed about his side's sixth place finish at the Under-20 European Championships for Women in France. Poland's tournament got off to a terrible start with a 65-56 defeat to Hungary and though they qualified for the knockout stage, tournament favourites Russia eliminated them in the quarter-finals.

Quarter-Finals: Russia 92 Poland 74

If anyone had any doubts about Russia’s abilities after they lost twice in the Group games, they were quickly dispelled after their Quarter-Final performance this afternoon. Despite 35 minutes of intense pressure from Poland, the Russians slowly but surely broke the Polish spirit ontheir way to a 72-57 win. At times the Russians completely dominated inside, out-rebounding Poland 52-23, and taking only 4 offensive rebounds less that the Polish total.

Finland 49 – Russia 81
Thanks to Russia’s loss yesterday to Ukraine, this game was do-or-die for both teams as a win handed the victor the last Quarter-Final place from Group A. Finland were still on an up after a great show against Slovak Republic but after the first 10 minutes today already started to look a little tired. Russia, however, looked in great shape, the key players having not played a lot of minutes against Ukraine.

Ukraine 78 - Slovak Republic 79
Both teams came into this game with one win and one loss, both knowing that the outcome could be decisive for the final placing at the end of the Preliminary Round. For much of the game it looked like the Slovak Republic would keep control but a last quarter comeback by the Ukraine brought an unexpected nail-biter finish.
