img_2312Duration: 79 minutes
Scoring sequence: 2-0, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 9-9, 10-10, 11-11, 12-12, 12-18, 13-18, 13-21, 16-21, 16-22, 18-22, 18-23, 19-23, 19-27, 20-27, 20-28, 21-28, 21-29, 22-29, 22-30, 23-30, 23-31, 24-31, 24-32, 26-32, 26-33, 27-33 y 27-35

Master Jai’s pair Olha and Elizegi could not match the hard working Jon Arriaga, who together with Foronda won the first semifinal with 27-35.

OLHA-ELIZEGI 27
FORONDA-J. ARRIAGA 35

The game was surrounded by a nice atmosphere, and was very even through the first dozen of points. Christophe Olha seemed very focused, threw his shots with great spead and was very well directed from the backcourt by Adolfo Elizegi. Both Iker and Jon in the blue team played well, but did not seem to be able to finish the points of in the same effective manner. After 12-12 the game changed a bit, and the Jai Alive teams more consistant play payed off with six straight points making the scores 12-18. Master Jai’s players made an effort to even up the scores but only reached to 18-22 before it started to be quite clear who would walk off the court as winners. Arriaga played very well and Forondo managed to close a couple of points in a spectacular way. The last points were more even but with a small advantage for the Jai Alive team, who could then close the game with a seven points lead.

Worth mentioning is that Christophe lost three points on his own serve.

The results in the other two games were:

BARONIO-GARITA 22
LEKUE-ALBERDI III 30

AIMAR-GARAI 25
TREKU-JOAKIN 18
