Valmiera opened the game outscoring Parnu 17-2 in the first five minutes. A couple minutes later, the margin had already reached 19.
Parnu did not manage to cut into the lead in the second period and were already down by 24 at halftime. The home side‘s woes just continued in the second half, as Valmiera‘s lead was pushed to 36.
It was all said and done after three quarters and despite Parnu‘s last quarter surge, nothing could be done.
Aigars Skele and Haralds Karlis led Valmiera/ORDO in scoring with 17 points, while Armands Skele added 15 to the total. Arturs Berzins ended the game with 11 points, while Davis Rozitis was good for 10.
Paulius Petrilevicius was a bright spot in an otherwise dim performance, as the Lithuanian scored 17 points, tallied 10 rebounds and dished out 4 assists. Robert Valge and Rain Raadik chipped in with 15 apiece, while Silver Leppik ended the game with 12 points and 7 rebounds.
