Gran Canaria left behind the bad streak it had been going through and, after winning the Casademont Zaragoza track, accumulates three wins in the last four games after having previously added six losses in a rows, so he continues to target the positions of the fight for the title.
The Canarian team managed to defeat a ‘rojillo’ team that once again demonstrated their irregularity although at all times they clung to the game as best they could, despite always being behind in the electronics. Despite this he was never able to finish the reactions that he had initiated on several occasions.
Porfirio Fisac’s team, with their good defensive work, managed to prevent the best version of their rival from coming out and that allowed them to win a victory that was as important as it was hard-fought.
The Aragonese team started the game in an excellent way against a very bad rivalboth in triples and in two-point shots, who, however, stayed in the game thanks to his offensive rebounds that allowed him second shooting options.
Even so, the success of the owners of the land managed to reach an advantage of 8 points (18-10) in the 7th minute that the output of the substitutes in Porfifio Fisac’s team began to drop to 3 at the end of the first ten minutes thanks especially to an inspired John Shurna on 3s.
The American’s recital continued in the second quarter and was key to turning the score around. With five triples without fail and a basket of two, the islanders scored a partial of 3-15 that took the foreign advantage to 9 points (25-34) in the 14th minute, which became 14 and that in the end the hand team cut to ten (36-46) to stay alive.
The Zaragozans returned to the game with some good minutes after the locker room lap that left them four points behind (48-52) but the foreign reaction was instantaneous to return the advantage to ten points (58-68) at the end of the quarter.
The drive and the local faith led him to approach, once again, up to two points (76-78) with 2:51 remaining for the conclusion but, once again, the Gran Canarian team stood firm to prevent the scoreboard from turning around and end up achieving an important victory.
