Croatia registered their first win in the U16 European Championship Women with another impressive display in beating Group A rivals Greece 64-33.

Croatia surged clear with a 13-0 run in the first quarter, but were then held scoreless for more than three minutes as the Greek team battled back.

Anita Kelava capped a great first half with a block on one end leading to a jump shot on the other to push the lead up to ten points, 28-18 at the break.

Croatia put the game away with a 14-2 run in the third quarter as their strong defense continued to cause problems for the Greek team.

Kelava ended with 15 points and 11 rebounds and Iva Slonjsak added 10 points for Croatia.

Marilena Gerostergiou was a bright spot for Greece with nine points, but both teams will be hoping to shoot the ball better in future games as they combined for 30.5% (36-118).
