Once more there were no surprises in the final results although the half time scores in some games were not as decisive as the higher ranked teams would have liked. In pool B China beat South Africa 22 – 11, The Netherlands beat Hungary 31 – 9 and in the closest match of the day the Czech Republic beat Turkey 18 – 15 overall but lost the second half 10 – 7.
In pool A Chinese Taipei beat the Dominican Republic 25 – 8, Germany beat Poland 20 – 9 and England eventually overcame Hong Kong China 24 – 11 (H/T 11 – 8).
Pool standings after three matches:
Chinese Taipei and England have 9 points each, Germany 6 points, Hong Kong China 3 points; the Dominican Republic and Poland each have 0 points.
The Netherlands and China have 9 points; Czech Republic 6 points; Hungary 3 points; Turkey and South Africa each have 0 points.
The leading scorers are still Blake Palfreyman (ENG) with 17 goals and Ya-Wen Lin (TPE) with 16.
