Luckily, South Africa scored 8 points on GB (while they had only scored 7 on us previously), and we shutout Germany. That was the tie breaker to put us into 3rd seed in our pod. We made it by one goal. Phew!
3rd seed is so much preferable both because we are now in the top 8 gaurenteed, and also have a better schedule. WE HAVE A BUY DAY!!!!! Whohoo, tomorrow we take a rest. This will greatly help us hit the semi-finals round with intensity.
We play Colombia at 8:00 am after our rest day and that will be a very very hard game. We made some small tweaks to our positioning during our easier games that I will pay off!!!
For the other USA teams: the Men’s Elite lost to France 1-4, the Men’s Masters tied Netherlands 3-3 and lost to #1 seed Australia 2-4, and the Women’s Masters lost to Canada 4-2 and Great Britain 6-1. Looks like there should be some exciting games tomorrow!
We are going to do some cheering and then visit a Cheetah Outreach in the afternoon.
