The “swarm” took out a duel from Queretaro lands and then when it looked against the wall in the Dome of the Fair, it came from behind again to force a fifth and final clash that will be held this Friday at 8:30 p.m. on the floor of the General Arteaga Auditorium.
“It has been a complicated series, Libertadoras has a great roster, they are important players, but we came together, we have been working for this and every day the team has seen better, but the main thing is that emotionally we are united and that matters a lot” , said Jessica Elizondo, coach of the Leon quintet.
Abejas wants to make history and bury all the complicated passages that were experienced during the first phase of the seasonwhere only the Panthers of Aguascalientes were beaten at home.
“If we have shown anything, it is that we have a tireless fighting spirit, from the beginning we wanted to transmit that spirit of never throwing in the towel, we are liking that of going against the current and we must continue the same, humble, building and trusting in the process, no one believed that we could achieve it, sometimes giant steps are taken, we took them small, but concise and now it is being seen”, said Elizondo.
The key to going to the conference final will be “playing with the same seriousness, doing what we know and going to give it our all, sometimes basketball is unpredictable, but with will and heart we want to be in that final.”
Astros de Jalisco is already waiting for the winner of this tie, while Fuerza Regia and Adelitas de Chihuahua will go for the title of the North Zone.
