The teams played some close basketball only in the starting quarter as CSKA managed to clear off at the end and entered the second stanza with a 7-point advantage. Maria Stepanova and Ann Wauters dominated the scene in the second quarter and easily gave CSKA a 48:26 lead at halftime. Moscow team opened the second half with an 8:0 rally and enlarged the gap to 30 points. Riga never seemed to be on their way into contest and headed into the final term trailing by 29 points 38:67.

USK ZVVZ Praha - BLC Sparta Praha 11.11.2007
SM-sarja, Round 9: PeKa, Kotka suffered the first loss of the season, when visitor Catz, Lappeenranta was this time stronger at the end of the top
game: 71-85 (38-30). PeKa had the lead three quarters, but lost the 4th quarter 10-29. Catz´ rebounding strength (rbs 39-51 for Catz) and points
under the boards were the key factors to this kind of result. PeKa was shooting more threes and did it pretty well (13/26 = 50,0%), but that was
not enough today. Yelena Solovyeva (189-C-75) and Tamara Tatham (185-F-85, college: Massachusetts) were Catz´ key players.
PeKa - Catz 71-85 (38-30) (Susanna Rinta 18, Maiju Pekkarinen 17 - Yelena Solovyeva 22/18, Tamara Tatham 21/10).
