13 December 2007

Dynamo Moscow reignited their hopes of qualifying for the EuroLeague Women eighth-finals following a hard-fought 92-86 win over MiZo Pecs 2010.

Latvian forward Anete Jekabsone-Zogota and American power forward Seimone Augustus were in inspired form, scoring 28 and 26 points respectively to see Dynamo home.

The result saw the Russians rise to second in Group D and moved their record to 3-3, the same as Hungarian outfit MiZo Pecs 2010 who sit third.

Dynamo took the early initiative, but an eight-point run helped the home side take a 15-12 lead midway through the first quarter.

It got better for the Hungarians towards the end of the first quarter as a six-point run culminating in two successful free throws from Zsofia Fegyverneky helped them go 28-20 ahead.

Despite opening up a 10-point gap early in the second quarter, Dynamo fought back and Jekabsone-Zogota`s three-pointer just before the buzzer reduced the deficit to 74-44 at half-time.

Dynamo eventually went 59-58 ahead in the third quarter, but a seven-point run put MiZo Pecs 2010 back in front, before finishing the quarter with a 65-61 advantage.

In the final quarter Dynamo showed their character once again, putting together an early five-point run to edge in front.

Dynamo then kept it that way with the impressive Jekabsone-Zogota shooting two free throws at the end to secure the win.

It was from the free throw line that MiZo Pecs 2010 had the most trouble, making only 72.7% of their free throws compared to Dynamo`s 88.2%.
