Czechs Hold Off Hungary

25.07.2006

Czech Republic opened their quarter-final round account in Tenerife with a win against Hungary.

It was not a vintage performance from the Czechs, who went 2-1 in the preliminary round, but they always looked too strong for Hungary.

After a close first quarter, the Czechs opened up the first gap of the game with a 9-0 run to close the second period.

Center Petra Benesova scored 6 of her side's 9 points in the run and Czech Republic took a 43-31 lead into halftime.

Hungary stayed within shouting distance for the remainder of the game, but never really put together any consistent passage of play to threaten their opponents.

Katerina Bartonova led four Czech Republic players in double digit scoring with 13 points, while Benesova and Katerina Ehlotova had 12 apiece and Eva Kotlanova 10.
