Cold-Shooting MKB Fall In Krakow

30 January 2009

Wisla Can-Pack Krakow forced a game-three decider in their EuroLeague Women Eighth-Finals play-off tie with MKB Euroleasing on Friday by winning 52-39 in Poland.

Thrashed 81-58 earlier in the week in Hungary, Wisla turned up the defensive pressure and held MKB to just 25.5% shooting inside the arc.

MKB were their own worst enemy at the free throw line as well, making only 11 of 18 (61.1%).

The game was knotted at 28-28 early in the third quarter when Agnieszka Palka struck with a three-pointer for the hosts.

Dominique Canty followed with a jumper before Jelena Skerovic drilled a three for an eight-point lead.

Canty kept the pressure with another basket.

The run continued until Wisla had a 42-28 advantage with just under three minutes to go in the frame.

MKB weren't able to mount a comeback in the fourth.

Marta Fernandez finished with 14 points for Wisla, who will look for more of the same when they travel back to Hungary next week for the do-or-die clash for both teams.
