JEKABPILS - It was a good way to end their 2016 Triobet BBL year for Valmiera/ORDO, as they dominated against Jekabpils and took a big 77-55 away win. The victory helps them improve to a great 7-2 record.


As you would expect, the game started off with both sides trading punch for punch. Neither side managed to gain any ground in the first ten minutes, but that didn't stand long.

Right as the second quarter started, Valmiera/ORDO ran off ahead. They managed to amass a small lead before halftime and kept on building on it after the break.

It was all Valmiera in the third quarter, as they won the quarter by 15. Their lead rose to a game-high 28 points and it was all over at that point.

The final quarter didn't matter much, as it seemed all settled. It was a comfortable victory for the visitors, as Jekabpils suffered their third loss in ten games.
