The Basque team overcame the five disadvantages with which they started and will face Perfumerías Avenida in the next round. A triple from Buch, decisive.


Lointek Gernika Bizkaia became the third semifinalist of the Endesa Women's League this Sunday after coming back, in an even match that was not decided until the final moments, the five points of disadvantage that Movistar Estudiantes achieved in the first leg of the quarterfinals (74-64) .

The clash was decided in the last two minutes, in which an 11-3 partial in favor of the locals ended the student aspirations.

The Madrid, who were classified for many minutes, took the first quarter (12-15) and went to rest three down, a result that helped them to go to the round. In the third act the dominance was of the locals, who suffered in the last ten minutes and could only come back thanks to their greater success in the decisive moments of the clash, in which the schoolboys failed from the free kick.Nadia Gomes, with 18 points, six rebounds and a PIR of 18, was the best player on the Biscayan team, which also highlighted the success of Roso Buch, who contributed fourteen points, and the work under hoops of Nogaye Lo Sylla, who captured ten rebounds.

The Lointek thus joins Perfumerías Avenida and Spar Girona, who fulfilled their role as favorites on Saturday and, after repeating triumph in the second leg of the quarterfinals against Spar Gran Canaria and Ciudad de la Laguna, respectively, they obtained the first two tickets for the semifinals.

The fourth round, which faces Valencia Basket and Durán Maquinaria Ensino, had to be postponed after the appearance of a positive for COVID 19 in the Galician team and will be played on a date yet to be decided.
