Big Win Lifts Bourges Into Second

19.01.2011

Bourges Basket secured second place in EuroLeague Women Group D as they eased to a big 70-50 win over Beretta-Famila.

Bourges wasted no time in making their intentions clear as they scored the first nine points of the game, and they were up 21-6 with a little under a minute to go in the opening period following Paoline Salagnac's lay-up.

A 7-0 start to the second period made it 30-8 and Beretta's night was effectively over.

Athough the visitors were able to stop the bleeding, the gap stuck at close to 20 points almost the entire night, bar a brief rally which even then only cut it to 12, 45-33, in the third quarter.

Catherine Joens led Bourges with 18 points while Endene Miyem added 16. Anael Lardy also reached double figures with 10.

Maja Erkic led the resistance for Beretta with 16 points while Liron Cohen had 15.
