Rivas Ecopolis wins game one of the Spanish league finals

Current Spanish league champions and cup holders Perfumerias Avenida is one loss away from losing one of those titles after a loss in the Spanish league finals game one against Rivas Ecopolis at home 47-61.

Rivas made the decisive break in the game in the second half with a 14-2 run to convert a four point lead in a sixteen point lead early in the fourth quarter. For a 31% shooting Avenida squad that margin was too big to overcome.

Rachel Allison led Rivas with 18 points on 8 of 15 shooting, Spanish power forward Laura Nicholls added 16 points, while Frida Eldebrink struggled for Rivas with 1 of 9 shooting from the field. Angelica Robinson had 19 points and 15 rebounds for Avenida, who had their leading scorer of the season Shay Murphy go 4 of 20 from the field.
