CTO had a 8-2 advantage before Probuild got their motors running on the way to 8-11. After 19-21 Probuild extended their lead by two threes of sensational guard Katie Bussey to 38-46 at halfway.

After the break CTO did a better job using their height adventage, and they came back to 67-71 on a basket of Richelle van der Keijl but Horelika, McDowell, Bos and Bussey made a run to 71-82 ending the hopes for the hometeam. Aneta Horelika had 11 points and 10 boards in her league debut.
