What a reaction from Schio and especially from Kim Mestdagh in the final of the Italian play-offs (Serie A1)! Schio lost the first two games in Venice.
In this best of five it had to win the first home game of the final or the title was for Venice. Kim Mestdagh took her team in tow. After a 49-35 bonus halfway through, Venice took a remonte, but the Belgian Cat guided Schio with 19 points (including 4 three-pointers, 5 rebounds and 1 assist) after an exciting final phase to a 90-89 victory. The score in this best of five is 2-1 in favor of Venice. Kim Mestdagh and her teammates will play in their own middle again on Thursday and can force a fifth and decisive match (16 May in Venice) with a win.
