Hungary – Israel 12:10 (2:1, 5:3, 2:3, 3:3)

A minute and a half before the middle break, Hungary had a 7:2 lead. However, in the remaining time, the Hungarians had to work hard to keep the advantage. Israel, led by Miriam Bogachenko (7 goals), climbed back and trailed by only a single goal (10:11) three and a half minutes before the end. Hungary’s Noemi Zantleitner converted an extra-man attack for 12:10 three minutes and 8 seconds from time. This was the last goal in the encounter and Hungary kept a 2-goal win. The Hungarians can’t be satisfied with the 9th place, as they are always favourites for medals, while the 10th place is a nice result for Israel.

Romania – Turkey 7:8 (2:1, 2:0, 2:3, 1:4)

Romania had a nice start and gained a 5:1 lead early in the third period. But, Turkey refused to lie down. The Turks came back and went ahead (7:6) with 34 seconds remaining on the clock. That was the start of a real thriller. Just 13 seconds later, Romania equalised from a penalty shot (7:7). Turkey earned an extra-man attack 14 seconds from time. Visha found the net for an 8:7 win just 4 seconds before the final buzzer.
