Brazil, Cuba and Argentina are each 2-0 in Group play and have secured tickets to the Semifinals on Friday. Brazil and Cuba have dominated Group A with both nations beating the Dominican Republic and Greenland. The matches against the Dominican Republic were not close, but Greenland put up a good fight losing by 7 to Cuba and 6 to Greenland. Brazil and Cuba will play for first place in the group tomorrow.
Argentina is clearly the class of Group A with an 18 goal victory over Uruguay and a 27 goal victory against Canada. Chile is currently in 2nd place thanks to a 36-25 victory over Canada on Day 1. On day 2, however Chile and Uruguay played to a 27-27 draw. The total goal differential in tomorrow‘s matches (Chile vs. Argentina) and (Uruguay vs. Canada) will likely decide the outcome. Chile currently has a 29 goal advantage. A large number, but one that could potentially be overcome.
