After a rain out Tuesday, the USA got some court action yesterday against tournament hosts Colombia. Right out of the gate the USA took a 5 goal lead only to have Colombia chip away at the lead to end the first half tied 12-12. In the 2nd half Colombia took a 21-18 lead, but the USA staged its own comeback and controlled the last 10 minutes of play for the eventual 25-23 victory. Rene Ingram was instrumental in goal with many big saves, including several on penalty shots. Cedric Kollman and Sam Hoddersen led USA scoring with 7 and 6 goals, respectively. Antoine Baup and Sean Zimber added 4 each. Michael Lee and Youssef El Far rounded out the scoring with 2 a piece.
Tonight the USA plays 2-0 Martinique at 2000 Eastern Time. A win will guarantee the U.S. a trip to the championship game which will most likely be a rematch vs Martinique. Even with a loss, the U.S. is still in good shape and would still qualify for the final with a win over Guatemala on Friday.
