Sweden Dream Ends
Spain's suffocating defense led to some efficient fast-paced offense as they beat Sweden 81-69 in the U18 European Championship for Women.

The result was a big blow for Sweden as it ended their chances of securing a semi-final berth. Only a win over last year's runners-up, combined with France beating Russia in the last game at SPU on Thursday, would have seen them through to the last four.

Hot Shooting Sweden Chalk Up Another Win
Yet another three-point barrage proved the winning formula for Sweden as they beat Bulgaria 73-60 in the U18 European Championship for Women.

The Bulgarians got off to a quick start and were up 9-6 following Stefka Nikolova's lay up. But Frida Fogdemark and Jennifer Kucukkaya found their stroke from downtown to spearhead an 11-0 run that swung the game in Sweden's favour as they took a 21-11 lead heading into the second quarter. They were able to cruise from that point onwards.

With their offense stalling in the first quarter, Serbia made great use of their suffocating defense to beat Sweden 60-44 in the U18 European Championship for Women.

The defending champions trailed 15-8 after the first quarter but clamped down at the defensive end and seemed to derive great energy from that strategy as they soon discovered their touch. They used a 17-0 run to take a 27-20 half-time lead.
