Teams Day TWO : Top seeds secure quarters spots

World Junior Teams – Day TWO

Another day of Pool matches as teams jostled for placings with the quarter-finals in mind, seven of the top eight seeds securing their playoff spots …

Morning Roundup – top four through to quarters:

No upsets as the eight higher seeded teams all won their matches 3-0. Top seeds Egypt, Malaysia, Hong Kong and England kept their winning records intact to guarantee they will be in the quarter-finals.

Switzerland also booked their quarter-final place – they’ll face Egypt tomorrow to determine the Pool A top positions.

In Pool B Canada took their first win, but will most likely need to beat Malaysia tomorrow to make the last eight with Australia taking on Japan.

USA notched up a second win and will look for one more tonight to set up a Pool D decider against England, while in Pool C India made it two from two and will aim for a third win tonight to set up a pool C decider against Hong Kong.

Evening Roundup – USA & India clinch playoff spots

India and USA duly recorded their second 3-0 wins of the day, setting up clashes against Hong Kong and England tomorrow to decide the top two positions in Pools C and D.

Ireland and South Africa also won, meaning that they will meet New Zealand and Korea to decide third and fourth places in C and D.
