Italy defeats China, but both continue in the Consolation Group

Italy defeats China, but both continue in the Consolation Group

Ahead of this duel Italy had chances to reach the Main Round, they needed a victory against China and had to hope for an Australian surprise against Uruguay.

Both games took place at the same time and due to the pressure Italy started with massive problems, China were ahead by two to four points.

Coach Tamás Neukum´s team pulled itself together and with Elena Barini´s points came closer and leveled the match to 14:14. The Italian line-player was responsible for the decisive points for her side.

In the second period, the Chinese were left shocked, when Italy took a quick 8:2 lead.

The Asian champions had no answer for the quick Italian attacks, so Barini and Co. celebrated victory, but have to continue in the Consolation Group, just like their Chinese opponents.

Women`s game:

Italy- China 2:0 (16:14) (13:8)
