Halcon Hopes Remain Intact


Halcon Avenida boosted their hopes of qualifying for the last 16 of the EuroLeague Women with a 82-72 win over Jolly JBS Sibenik in Group B.

The Spanish side remain fourth in the group with a 3-4 record while Jolly's EuroLeague dreams grow ever fainter as they are now 2-5.

Anna Montanana top-scored for the hosts with 22 points while Jessica Dickson poured in 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Croatian side.

Both teams went into the tie eager to snap a two-game losing streak which had left them prop up the group with Bourges Basket and ZVVZ USK Prague.

Neither side really managed to take control of the game and though the Croatians had a 25-17 advantage at the end of the first quarter, the Halcon players reacted well to end the second period with a slim 42-40 edge.

And the Spanish poured in seven points without reply to increase their advantage early in the second half.

Jolly pulled to within a point of their opponents but Ivanka Matic sunk three two-pointers and a free throw to help her side into a 62-56 lead going into the final 10 minutes.

Halcon never looked back as they poured in 20 points in the last period to storm to victory.
