DS1 takes the win in Twente

Last Saturday, STOL-Grasshoppers played against Eurosped Twente in Tubbergen. In a sloppy match with alternating scoring leads, the team of coach Burhan Alibegovich finally drew the longest straw. Despite the fact that they were not shooting well, the 1st half was won by a small margin (30-33), and STOL-Grasshoppers are able to widen their lead (43-49) in the 3rd quarter. Eurosped tries to close the gap with a sprint in the last quarter, but have to concede the win to the team from Katwijk (59-62).

Period scores: 14-14; 16-19; 13-17; 16-12.
Team schots: 1-24 3-pointers, 23-50 2-pointers, 13-18 free thows
Top scorers: Kelli Valentine 17, Rianne Philippo 15, Corine Manuputty 11, Karin Kuijt 10 (+11 assists).
Rebounds: Eline Kraayenoord 8.
With this win and the win of last Tuesday against competition leader Binnenland, STOL-Grasshoppers climb to the 3rd place in the First Division.

Next Saturday STOL-Grasshoppers DS1 play at 19:30 against the number 2 in the competition, Probuild Lions, in Landsmeer. The next home game is February 4 at 20:15 against CTO, Amsterdam.
