Kazakhstan claimed 13th position in another rematch of Rome. This time Brazil had to be happy with 14th. Kazakhstan started strongly with the first two goals five-metre shots. ZABLITH responded on counter for a close first quarter. An even second period saw Kazakhstan stretch the margin to 4-2 but ZABLITH closed the half with a centre-forward goal 11 seconds from time.
It took some time for Kazakhstan to strike again, VASSILYEVA scoring at 4:34. CHEBOTOVA converted the penalty foul at 2:01 for the decisive 6-3 break after BEER gave up the penalty. VASSILYEVA scored her third of the game and 10th for the tournament two minutes into the final period and CHEBOTOVA followed suit with a score from two metres for 8-3. COUTINHO scored twice in 20 seconds, firstly from the penalty line and then on counter. However, MUSSAROVA converted extra-man at 0:05 for the final score.
