Spain Capture Fifth
Spain held off a furious third quarter comeback by Serbia to beat them 69-64 and thereby finish fifth at the U18 European Championship for Women.


In the tournament's second re-match of last year's final - Spain beat Serbia 76-64 on Tuesday in the Qualifying Round - the Spaniards once again toppled the 2007 champions to clinch the fifth and final berth for next year's U19 World Championship for Women.

Fourth Quarter Push For Spain
Spain needed a near flawless fourth-quarter display to shake off Poland 77-62 and book their place for Sunday's 5th-6th place game in the U18 European Championship for Women.

Trailing 48-44 to start the final quarter, last year's runners up used some of their effective pressure defense and dead-eye shooting by the pair of Cristina Ouvina and Alba Garcia as they went on a 25-3 run that put them comfortably ahead 69-51.

The result was a big blow for Sweden as it ended their chances of securing a semi-final berth. Only a win over last year's runners-up, combined with France beating Russia in the last game at SPU on Thursday, would have seen them through to the last four.
