Tyeasha Moss
The most exciting game of round 14 in the Liga Feminina took place in Coimbra. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of 3rd ranked Olivais (9-4) to first ranked GDESSA (11-2) 66-65 on Saturday evening. Olivais were trailing by 5 points at halftime but managed to get 10-point lead after three quarters before a 26-15 charge of GDESSA, which allowed them to win the game. They also forced 19 Olivais turnovers. American guard Tyeasha Moss (175-90, college: Xavier) saved the victory by scoring 24 points and 5 rebounds. The other American import power forward Keyona Bryant (186, college: St.Augustine) contributed with 8 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American center Lady Comfort (188-86, college: Temple) replied with 19 points and 8 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for Olivais. GDESSA have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 11-2 record. Olivais at the other side dropped to the fourth place with four games lost. GDESSA are looking forward to face Alges (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Olivais will play against Boa Viagem in Angra Heroismo and are hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Bottom-ranked Ovarense is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their 13th consecutive match to second ranked Lombos Quinta (10-2) 82-24. Center Maria Kostourkova (188-97) had a double-double by scoring 10 points and 12 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Haily Dunham chipped in 15 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. Forward Susana Cardoso (177-92) responded with 8 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Lombos Quinta maintains second position with 10-2 record behind leader GDESSA. Newly promoted Ovarense still closes the standings with 13 games lost. Lombos Quinta will play against CDTorres N. (#8) in Torres Novas in the next round where they are favorite. Ovarense will have a break next round.
The game in Funchal was also quite interesting. 5th ranked AD Vagos (9-5) played at the court of sixth ranked CAB Madeira (8-3). CAB Madeira managed to secure a 8-point victory 59-51 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of AD Vagos. Maria Correia notched 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds by Ebony Ellis did not help to save the game for AD Vagos. CAB Madeira have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain sixth position with 8-3 record. Loser AD Vagos keep the fifth place with five games lost. CAB Madeira will meet at home Lousada (#9) in the next round. AD Vagos will play against Academico FC (#10) in Porto and hope to secure a win.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 14: Lousada were smashed by Alges on the road 79-53. Montijobanda was destroyed by Boa Viagem on its own court 39-58. CDTorres N. outscored Academico FC in Torres Novas 68-47.
The most impressive performance of 14th round was 35 points (!!!) and 14 rebounds by Christina Dewitt of Lousada.

Alges - Lousada 79-53

No shocking result in a game when third ranked Alges (10-3) crushed at home 9th ranked Lousada (3-9) 79-53 on Sunday. The game without a history. Alges led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 62 of its points in the paint compared to Lousada's 42. Alges forced 29 Lousada turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Lousada's players. American swingman Katie Gearlds (186-84, college: Purdue) notched 15 points and 4 assists to lead the effort and point guard Joana Soeiro (170-95) supported her with 10 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Alges' coach Jose Araujo felt very confident using entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even a double-double of 35 points (!!!) and 14 rebounds by American forward Christina Dewitt (188-87, college: N.Carolina, agency: Gamble Sports Management) did not help to save the game for Lousada. Her fellow American import forward LaKeisha Mosley (185-89, college: W.Kentucky) added 10 points and 14 rebounds for the guests. Defending champion maintains third position with 10-3 record behind leader GDESSA. Lousada lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the ninth place with nine games lost. Alges will meet league's leader GDESSA in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Lousada will play against CAB Madeira (#6) in Funchal and hope to secure a win.

Montijobanda - Boa Viagem 39-58

Very expected game when 11th ranked Montijobanda (2-10) was smashed at home by seventh ranked Boa Viagem (8-6) 58-39 on Saturday. Boa Viagem dominated on the defensive end, holding Montijobanda to just 7 points in fourth quarter. They also forced 21 Montijobanda turnovers. American power forward Ta-Myra Davis (185-87, college: Wright St.) notched a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the effort and Lavinia Silva supported her with 19 points. Even 15 points and 8 rebounds by American guard Cherise Daniel (180, college: Ohio St.) did not help to save the game for Montijobanda. Joana Canastra (173-94) added 13 points for the hosts. Boa Viagem maintains seventh position with 8-6 record. Montijobanda lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the eleventh place with ten games lost. Boa Viagem will meet at home higher ranked Olivais (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Montijobanda will have a break next round.

Lombos Quinta - Ovarense 82-24

Bottom-ranked Ovarense is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their 13th consecutive match to second ranked Lombos Quinta (10-2) 82-24. The game without a history. Lombos Quinta led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Ovarense to just 0 points in third quarter and to 7 points in second half. Lombos Quinta held Ovarense to an opponent 17.5 percent shooting from the field compared to 43.4 percent accuracy of the winners. They outrebounded Ovarense 64-17 including a 21-1 advantage in offensive rebounds. Center Maria Kostourkova (188-97) had a double-double by scoring 10 points and 12 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and American guard Haily Dunham (188-87, college: USC, agency: Merit Sports) chipped in 15 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. Forward Susana Cardoso (177-92) responded with 8 points and 5 rebounds and Sara Marques scored 4 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Lombos Quinta maintains second position with 10-2 record behind leader GDESSA. Newly promoted Ovarense still closes the standings with 13 games lost. Lombos Quinta will play against CDTorres N. (#8) in Torres Novas in the next round where they are favorite. Ovarense will have a break next round.

Academico FC - CDTorres N. 47-68

Rather predictable result when eighth ranked CDTorres N. (5-9) rolled over 10th ranked Academico FC (3-12) in Porto 68-47 on Saturday. The game without a history. CDTorres N. led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. CDTorres N. forced 19 Academico FC turnovers and had a 29-17 advantage in offensive rebounds. American guard Donica Cosby (172-88, college: Oklahoma City, agency: Gamble Sports Management) notched 29 points to lead the effort and the other American import forward Taylor Turnbow (187-90, college: LSU, agency: Merit Sports) supported her with 20 points and 13 rebounds. Even 12 points and 9 rebounds by guard Joana Cruz (168-92) did not help to save the game for Academico FC. Isabel Leite (-84) added 12 points and 8 rebounds for the hosts. Academico FC's coach Mario Barros gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. CDTorres N. maintains eighth position with 5-9 record. Loser Academico FC keeps the tenth place with 12 games lost. CDTorres N. will meet at home league's second-placed Lombos Quinta in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Academico FC will play against AD Vagos (#5) and hope to secure a win.
Top scorers:
CDTorres N.: D.Cosby 29+4reb+3ast, T.Turnbow 20+13reb, S.Foreid 8+6reb, C.Rodrigues 7+11reb, L.Cruz 3+1reb+2ast, P.Simoes 1+2reb+1ast

It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of AD Vagos. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game.
