Yesterday, the U.S. finished Group Play with a comfortable, 28-21 victory over Guatemala. Sam Hoddersen led the U.S. in scoring with 12 goals while Antoine Baup had 8. Youssef El Far (4), Sean Zimber (3) and Tyler Boykin (1) rounded out the scoring.
The game had originally been scheduled for Tuesday, but due to strong rains and a leaky roof it had to be rescheduled for Friday. With the win, the U.S. finished in 2nd place with a 2-1-0 record and today will get a chance to avenge its loss against undefeated Martinique. The U.S. lost by 10 against Martinique, but with a title on the line don’t be surprised if this rematch is a lot more competitive. The winner of today’s match will take home the gold and will also advance to the Intercontinenal IHF Trophy tournament where it will face the winners from Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
Game time is 1600 ET
