Uruguay defeats Italy in the start of the WBHC 2012

Uruguay defeats Italy in the start of the WBHC 2012

Both teams have met earlier in Al Mussanah at the test event, twice it was the South American team winning and now Italy was hoping for a “revenge” and a good start in the championship.

The Italians got their act better together in the first period and played a head-to-head set with Uruguay with the South American team leading with few points throughout the period.

Wing player Paula Fynn scored several times, but Italy equaled to 9:9 before the final whistle and after a time out netted in the last second through Carman Onnis.

In the second period the happy Italians moved on with 3:0 blocking greatly Uruguay´s line-player, however the South Americans led by their joker Luciana Moreira scored 10 straight points and never looked back.

In the shoot-out the more experienced Italians failed often than Uruguay, so Alejandro Trejo`s South American team celebrated its first victory in the tournament before they faced Croatia in another hot duel.

Women´s game:

Italy – Uruguay 1:2 (10:9) (8:16) (6:7)
