North American & Caribbean IHF Trophy (Day 3 Results and Standings)

Youth (U18) Competition

Monday, 19 November Results
Canada 17×26 Martinique (Exhibition)
Mexico 28×19 Guadeloupe

Mexico easily defeated Guadeloupe to secure 2nd place in the pool play standings and they will take on Canada today in the Gold medal match.  Canada suffered a lopsided 26-17 loss to Martinique, but as the game was an exhibition it could very well be that they rested some of their players.

Junior (U20) Competition

Monday, 19 November Results
Mexico 21×22 Martinique (Exhibition)
USA 24×23 Guadeloupe

The U.S. and Guadeloupe met last night in a showdown match to determine who would play in the final vs Mexico.  The teams fought a see-saw battle most of the way.  In the first half both teams struggled to score due to a combination of good defense and offensive miscues.  At the half the U.S. had a narrow 9-8.  The second half saw both teams cut down on the turnovers and a faster paced game.  With around 5 minutes to go the U.S. was able to pull away for a comfortable 4 goal lead.  Guadeloupe was able to chip away at that lead, but the U.S. hung on for 24-23 win.  The win sets up a rematch vs Mexico tonight at 7:00 PM.  The winner will qualify for the Intercontinental IHF Trophy tournament at a date and location TBD.
