The Ukrainian team failed to start the match, allowing the Spaniards to start with a 10-0 spurt. The ladies felt free in the paint and realized 4 out of 8 three-point points for a quarter. Moss slightly made up our team, which scored 7 points in the first minute, but the Lucas Mondelo team won seven-minute "+7", which helped the initial spurt a lot.
In the second quarter, our girls managed to equalize the game and thanks to two further three points from Radulowicz reduced the difference to 2 points, but the Spaniards reacted on time with their mini-jerk and managed to keep the advantage on the account.
The start of the third quarter remained for the Spaniards, who quickly gained a two-digit advantage, but over time joined the attack Yagupova, who eventually added to the other side of the page and helped the Ukrainian team not let the Spaniards.
Boshkovich's players successfully started the last quarter-minute and again reduced the difference to a minimum, but our girls failed to put aside subsequent hostesses. The Spaniards recovered a more comfortable advantage, and Endvan Dominguez, as well as Ley-Up and three points from Ndoura, removed all questions in this game one and a half minutes before the end.
