Hot-Shooting Moro, Masciadri Fire Beretta-Famila To Victory

05 November 2009

Beretta-Famila rolled to their second straight EuroLeague Women victory in Schio on Thursday night against ESB Lille.

Fresh off their narrow Group B triumph in Hungary last week against MiZo Pecs, the Italian team turned on the style in the second half.

After leading 40-39 at half-time, the Italians began to pull away midway through the third quarter.

On top 48-45, Italy international Raffaella Masciadri and Elisabetta Moro hit back-to-back three-pointers before Mudju Ngoyisa capped the 8-0 spurt with a lay-up.

The home side then stamped their authority on the contest with a 7-1 run over the last 2:35 of the third quarter for a 66-53 lead.

ESB briefly closed to within nine at the start of the fourth quarter but Schio found their rhythm on both ends of the floor and stormed to a 22-point triumph.

Masciadri had 19 points and Nicole Antibe 16 for Schio, while the French side was led by Emilie Gomis' game-high 25 points.

The visitors hurt their own cause with a woeful effort at the free-throw line (12 of 21, 57.1%).

The Schio club was 11 of 23 (47%) from long range, including Masciadri's five-of-seven performance and Moro's perfect four-of-four night.
