Malta Home In On Women's Basketball Gold

NICOSIA, 3 June 2009 - The Malta Women’s Basketball Team has moved even closer towards the gold medal after defeating hosts Cyprus 53-48 on Wednesday to move top of the standings.

Santino Coppa’s side secured their second consecutive win on Wednesday and now need just one more win against Luxembourg on Friday to take the gold medal.

Cyprus will have it all to do in their next game to have any chance of toppling the Maltese whilst at the same time hoping that Luxembourg will do them a big favour in the other game.

During today’s game, the Maltese side once again showed what a tidy outfit they are as Cyprus battled in vain throughout the four quarters of the game.

In the third quarter, Cyprus tried to stifle the visitors with more pressure in defence but the Maltese refused to buckle despite the hosts managing to reduce the score to just three points (46-49) 2.12 minutes before the end of the game.

The end of the game was met with cheers from the Maltese players and bench.

Quarters: 13-9, 30-20, 41-33, 53-48.

MALTA (Coppa):  Ellul 13 (2), Sciortino, Grima C. 6, Cardona 4, Brincat-Thoreson 12 (2), Vella 4, Micallef 6 (1), Agius 2, Grima J. 12.
CYPRUS (Konstantinides): Nicodemou, Phedonas 4, K. Papadopoulou 10 (1) S. Papadopoulou 3, Vezenkova 2, Emilova-Ionova 12, Kouzi 6, Athanasiou 1, Theologou 10.
