(6-8) 103-64 on Wednesday evening. The game was mostly controlled by Audentes SG/N.. Tartu U. managed to win third quarter 21-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.

Audentes SG/N. forced 21 Tartu U. turnovers and outrebounded them 50-29 including a 31-15 advantage in defensive rebounds. 37 personal fouls committed by Tartu U. helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Estonian center Trine Kasemagi (190-95) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 20 rebounds for the winners and Estonian center Susanna Koert (195-96) chipped in 14 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals.

The best player for the winners was Laina Mesila-Kaarmann who scored 24 points and 5 rebounds. Anete Vorma produced 7 points and 6 rebounds for the hosts. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
