It was the first leg of the final on Wednesday as the knockout rounds conclude with the familiar format. Another battle of French foes was anticipated to be a grind and that was the case in the first game hosted by Villeneuve. Bourges was able to build an advantage in the second half after a poor second quarter, taking home a 51-40 lead. Celine Dumerc and Johannah Leedham were the only two players to reach double figures as the return game next Wednesday also figures to be a battle even with Bourges holding the advantage.
