Latvia Through Despite Loss

Anete Steinberga missed a last gasp shot which would have lifted Latvia to victory over Slovenia at the Termosteps U16 European Championship Women Division B.

However, Slovenia's 78-77 win was not enough to earn a semi-final berth and it is Latvia who advance to Saturday's semi where they will take on Romania.
