Italy, USA, Greece and Hungary are the four teams that grabbed the direct tickets to the quarter finals of the World Women’s Junior Championship in Volos (GRE), after the end of the games in Groups (day 3). In the most interesting match of Group D, USA achieved a vital win against Spain (17-16). Both teams were spectacular, in a game that USA used the two goalkeepers at the same time, in the last minutes, due to the fact that they didn’t have any players available (all of them have been expelled with 3 fouls).In a stunning game, Italy beat Canada (11-10), took the first play in Group C and also secured direct ticket to the quarter finals. That was a great game, between two ambitious teams. In the other match of the group Australia beat Netherlands (13-9) and was third.

Canada, who took the second place in Group C will contest Mexico, for a place to the best 8 teams of the competition. Mexico dominated in the game against Ukraine, in Group D, won 11-7 and will fight for participating in the quarter finals.

Netherlands and Ukraine will fight for the places 13-16.

Hungary and Greece won easily Brazil and Japan correspondingly and took the first place in their groups.  Russia was in the second place in Group A, after the emphatic win over Great Britain (22-6).

New Zealand obtained her first victory in the competition against South Africa (9-5) and took the third place in Group B.
