Wisla Can-Pack scored the final five points of the game to come from behind and top Rivas Ecopolis 66-62 on the road in Group A of EuroLeague Women.

Rivas had led 58-53 inside the final five minutes and even after Wisla had come back at them, the hosts - looking to move to 4-1 in the group - held a 62-61 edge following Aneika Henry's jump-shot with 92 seconds left.

But Alana Beard hit straight back with a three-pointer and Anna Cruz could not match it as her attempt from long range missed.

Beard missed a chance to pad the Wisla lead but Henry was again off-target with a jump-shot as the game moved into the final seconds.

That forced Rivas into fouling and when she went to the line with three ticks left, Dora Horti made both free throws to seal the win.

Despite the need for a late rally, Wisla were decent value for their victory, having led for more than half the contest, their largest lead a 49-43 edge midway through the third period.

Tina Charles led Wisla with 31 points and 11 rebounds while Beard had 17.

Oleksandra Kurasova had 25 points for Rivas while Queralt Casas added 12.
