Women’s Pan American Championships: Quick Summary and Links


Through 2 match days Group A seems fairly settled.  As expected, Brazil is the class of the group and is 2-0-0 after two easy wins over USA (44-10) and Costa Rica (59-7).  The Dominican Republic appears to be the second best side after it’s 27-11 victory over the USA, but that will likely be known for sure when they take on Mexico later today.  Team USA gets a solid chance for a victory when they take on Costa Rica at 7:00 PM (East Coast Time)

The picture in Group B is still a little muddled.  Argentina looks to be on course for first place with wins over Canada (37-14) and Paraguay (32-10), but there doesn’t appear to be a whole lot separating the other four sides.  Paraguay and Uruguay have a leg up due to their victories over Venezuela and Canada respectively, but that could change today as Canada takes on Paraguay and Venezuela takes on Uruguay.
