The Women’s National team made history once again by winning the
first ever medal at senior level at a Promotion Cup. The team won the
bronze medal in the 9th edition of the Promotion Cup in Andorra after
beating Armenia 69-61.

The result does not show the superiority that Malta had throughout
the match as it was only in the last session were the team was
administrating the game that the Armenians managed to make the result
more respectable.

This win means that Malta won four out of its five games played in
Andorra, and has by far got the best ever result in a Promotion Cup.

The scores in the four sessions were: 17-14 18-16 26-14 8-17. Top
Scorers for Malta were Lucienne Bezzina 25, Irene Farrugia 20,
Dorianne Galea 9.

The team will arrive back in Malta on Monday early morning.
