Fundosa ONCE defeats Servigest Burgos 80-20 in Spain’s top wheelchair basketball league

In a wheelchair basketball game Saturday night at Colegio San Agustin in Madrid in Spain‘s top level league, La Liga de Honor, CD Fundosa ONCE defeated Servigest Burgos 80–20. ONCE led the whole game, and ten of Burgos’s points came in the last four minutes with Helder Da Silva scoring eight of them. Burgos lost the game on poor shooting and an inability to control the shot clock. Earlier in the season, ONCE defeated Burgos 89–23. Burgos has not won a game against ONCE in the six total matches they have played against ONCE in La Liga de Honor play.
