Alltho they're handed lots of chances to put away the game very early the guests don't manage to pull away just yet. After Kinou Kanbier (175-F-95) hits a three for 9-10 the Rotterdam based team takes a lead to 9-17 after ten.
Ivo Boom gets T'd in the second quarter , but trailing already 10 points , the team gets a boost from the youngstars such as Deborah Vos and Fleur Kuijt who manage to fight themselves back into the game: 25-29 at the break.
In the second half Binnenland tries to get away but doesn't pull further away than 31-39. A few moments later the score is back to an exciting game: 42-46 capped by the second and third treys of Kinou Kanbier. The final stanza breaks the game open.
