Match articles and link to full match video (source: Bixintxo Bilbao Youtube) are available at PFF. Note: if you link directly to the video from PFF rather than BB Youtube, make sure to "desactiver" the PFF auto refresh function used for live scoring, or the video will not work.
Both matches were close early, but a 10-1 run by L-B put the score at 20-9 and they cruised home from there. The second match was tied at 21 before a 7 point run put W-G in command. The L-B match video is excellent, a condensed full match video, with only the points filmed. It lasts little over 1/2 hour, and has the scoreboard in sight at all times. Unfortunately, that scoreboard flickered in and out throughout the match.
