BC is now 1-2 on the European tour and head to Paris today. BC will play the final game on Thursday.

Final Day In Bruges:
The Eagles enjoyed their final day in this wonderful small city walking the streets with their favorite guide Albe. After a 25 minute tour, Albe let the team off on a street filled with lace, clothing and chocolate shops so they could investigate the city for an hour on their own. After a little shopping by the girls, the team had a very nice pregame meal at a family owned restaurant just steps away from the hotel - Oud Huis de Peellaert. The meal of chicken, pasta, salad and bread was prepared at Brugs Kieksken Memline. At 1:15 p.m. the team left for the entertaining bus ride through the narrow streets of Bruges to the Sportcentrum. If you want to get attention in Bruges, ride a huge bus through the narrow streets and watch all the locals yell at you because you should not be parked on the side of the road or weaving through the streets. After the game the girls went out to eat dinner, shop and find a place to taste the delicious Belgium Waffles with chocolate.
