The North American and Caribbean Men’s Handball Championships will qualify 4 teams for this summer’s Pan American Handball Championships in Uruguay. With 5 nations participating this means only 1 nation won’t punch their ticket for Uruguay. There’s still quite a few games to be played, but with Puerto Rico having lost their first two matches by large margins they appear to be the weakest team. Mathematically, there best hope is a win today against the U.S. which is the only other team without a victory. The U.S. lost 21-15 against Cuba in its only match so far. Following a 13-5 deficit in the first half the U.S. played much better in the 2nd half, actually outscoring the Cubans 10-8. Based on that performance the U.S. should be able to get a win and all but punch their ticket for Uruguay.
Match time is 5:00 PM (U.S. Eastern Time) and will be streamed live at the link below.
