The champion Perfumerías Avenida meets with Lointek Gernika to return to the Cup final


Perfumerías Avenida did not fail (67-55) this Friday against Barça CBS and completed the semifinals of the Copa de la Reina that is being played at the Príncipe Felipe de Zaragoza Pavilion, where they will face a Lointek Gernika that surpassed (65- 79) to the Spar Girona.

The women from Salamanca, current champions and Cup queens with eight titles in the last 11 editions, struck down the Catalans from a 24-6 lead in the first quarter. The intensity and success of the favorites passed over a recently promoted rookie who paid for his nerves.

The four defeats in a row that Barça had brought did not help either, although they did not throw in the towel. Carleton, Silvia Domínguez, Maite Cazorla and Leo Rodríguez held down a Perfumerías who saw their income drop in the second and third quarters, without actually fearing for their pass.

Meanwhile, Lointek Gernika gave the first surprise of the Cup against a Girona that, yes, arrived very depleted by injuries, with only seven players from the first team. The Basques reached the penultimate round of the Cup for the third time with a great Gabija Meskonyte (20 points).

The Catalan team ran into problems from the start, suffering Laura Spreafico’s three-pointers. The Basque arreón continued in the second quarter (27-40) forcing the epic to a Girona that threatened with the comeback with Laia Flores. Julie Wojta was the one who gave peace of mind in a step in front of those of Anna Montañana.
