Super Final 2013 (Men): Showdown again: Serbia to face Hungary in the final
CHELYABINSK, Russia (June 15) – Six years after they clashed in Berlin, Serbia and Hungary will face off again in the final of the FINA World League. Both sides won their respective semi finals 8-6, but in quite different ways. Serbia’s battle with Montenegro was open until the very last minute while Hungary’s strong opening against the US determined the rest of the match.
In the “lower house” China was too strong for Brazil again and Russia overcame Japan thanks to an incredible 6-0 third period.
Super Final 2013 (Men): Hungary, Montenegro, Serbia and USA in the semis
CHELYABINSK, Russia (June 14) – The thrilling penalty shootouts have become essential part of this World League Super Final: we’ve already have seen five, the last two now in the quarter finals. Both quarter final games featuring the second and third placed teams ended in a shootout with the United States and Montenegro prevailing. Though it’s worth mentioning that China was never so close to reach the semis and the host team Russia was also five metres from the door of the best four. In the other two games the respective group-winners – Serbia and Hungary – reached the semis easily, so Saturday will see a rematch of the prelims (USA vs. Hungary) and a clash of the former allies (Serbia vs. Montenegro).
