The final stretch of the season is approaching and each victory begins to demand an extra dose of effort from some teams that had to work hard on Saturday afternoon. A day in which Pajariel Bembibre was able to take an important step forward in their fight for permanence against a SPAR Gran Canaria that had arrived at the Bembibre Arena in a winning dynamic. But on this occasion, the Canarian team did not find themselves in attack colliding again and again with the defensive work of a local team that knew how to keep their rival away from the hoop. And that Giomi had put everything on his side with 15 rebounds in a first half in which he gave solidity to his team, but the defensive work of Pepe Vázquez’s men once again paid off after going through the changing rooms to be able to take command of the match towards victory (59-47).
Although if there were two teams that had to work hard to be able to bring a new victory to their locker, those were Lointek Gernika and Perfumerías Avenida that prevailed at home in Galician lands. In the case of Mario López, making the most of the talent of a Paula Ginzo who signed her best match of the season from the paint to make a difference. Especially in a second quarter in which the Basque team marked the way to victory against a rival who had to play from that moment without success against the rival and against the clock (62-79). For its part, Perfumerías Avenida had to carry out a new physical effort in Lugo with just seven players from the first team and the juniors completing the rotation. A duel in which the talent of Leo Rodríguez from the perimeter and the forcefulness of Emese Hof under the hoops was more than enough to contain a rival who paid dearly for his lack of success in the third quarter (47-72).
