Team Spain moved on to the European Ladies Amateur Team Championship Final Friday with a 4.5-2.5 win over host England. Rising senior Marta Sanz and her sister, former Tiger Patricia Sanz, are on Spain's six-person roster.

In the morning doubles matches, Marta Sanz teamed up with Natalia Escuriola to down the English team of Bronte Law and Meghan Maclaren, 2-up. Sanz also competed in the afternoon singles matches, but dropped hers to Hayley Davis, 1-up.

With the win, Spain, the No. 2 seed in the tournament, moves on to the championship match against No. 8 seeded Austria. The Austrians defeated top-seeded Denmark, 4-3, in the first round and No. 5 seed Finland, 5.5-1.5, in the semifinals.

The championship match is set to begin at 2:40 a.m. CT, Saturday at the Fulford Golf Club in York, England. Live stats can be found at www.EnglandGolf.org.
