|Ouleh Njie Sjögren brought energy into the game for Sweden|
Four players scored in double figures as Sweden survived a woeful first half to oust Scandinavian rivals Denmark, 52-41, and claim the last available place in the U16 European Championship Women second round.
Turning Point: Things were looking desperate after Sweden scored just 11 points in the first 22 minutes of action. But Ida Fredrikson's lay-up was quickly followed by three-pointers from Louise Skyttevall and Ouleh Njie Sjögren to take the lead, and they didn't allow themselves to fall behind again.
Game Heroes: Ariella Stocklassa hung tough in the middle for Sweden, blocking three shots and adding 10 points and seven rebounds. Lena Svanholm did all she could to keep Denmark in the game, sitting for less than a minute in total on her way to a game-high 14 points.
Stats Don't Lie: The teams combined for only 10 made field goals in the first half, but Sweden eventually found their range, hitting seven three-pointers in total compared to only one from the Danish team.
The Bottom Line: Sweden will begin the second round with two points, having been defeated by fellow qualifiers Czech Republic and Italy. Denmark take on fellow promoted sides Serbia and Portugal, as well as Slovakia, in classification action starting on Monday.
