The first quarter did not seem so promising for the team from Gdańsk. At the beginning no one was able to take the lead by more than a few points. Karolina Strzelczyk, Annika Holopainen and Maegan Conwright scored for the home team, while Khaalia Hillsman and Irena Matović gained points for the visitors. After the first ten minutes the ENEA team was leading 26:25, but during the second quarter the Gdańsk players got their mojo back. Martyna Koc and Martyna Pyka scored additional points and the home team was already leading by 9 points.
After switching sides the Sunreef Yachts Politechnika Gdańska team kept scoring, mainly thanks to aggressive defense, the players' favorite part of the game.
