From Feb.es they narrated the Lagunos milestone: “In the most important meeting in its history, Ciudad de La Laguna has not failed at the high level of demand to be able to certify its pass to the Eurocup Group Stage.
A clash that did not start quite well for the interests of the Canarian team since, after the first exchange of blows, Kangoeroes Basket was able to certify a 12-2 partial with which to take the lead both in the match and in the face to the fight for the classification (25-15).
The thing seemed to be partial and, between a Gaby Ocete that reached ten and a Kalis Loyd that was beginning to do her thing, the Canaries did not take long to sign a 0-7 with which to recover the pulse of the crash (25-22 ). It was during the final stretch of the first part that the visitors managed to feel more comfortable, taking the initiative and taking small income with which to put their cards on the table.
The match entered into a constant exchange of blows and thus reached the last minute, with the electronic equalized after two quarters without a clear dominator and with victory as the only objective (82-82). A field in which the Ciudad de La Laguna simply knew how to move better to certify a victory based on the strength of the inside game (84-90) ”.
