Recap of day two at the Metro Cup
Today's action in Warsaw separated the top teams from everyone else and determined who would play for the Metro Cup Championship on Sunday.
Finishing up pool-play this morning, Canada Red topped Group A by defeating the Czech Republic 58-34, and Germany snuck by Great Britain B 43-42, to finish second in the same group. Great Britain A cruised by Brazil 68-45 to win Group B, and host nation Poland upset Canada Black, 49-44 to secure second place in their group.
The afternoon crossover games were all decided by a factor of 10 points or more. Great Britain B took out the frustration of their earlier loss to Germany by tromping Brazil, 60-35. Canada Black followed the trend defeating the Czech Republic by eleven, 53-42. The results of these two matches setup what should be some great Sunday morning battles for the 5/6 and 7/8 place games.
Canada Red ended their day on another high note by beating Poland 50-40, and earning their spot in the Metro Cup Championship. Joining them for the final on Sunday will be Great Britain A, who defeated Germany 46-37.
Only Canada Red and Great Britain A remain undefeated at this point, so it will be interesting to see which of these split squads will emerge as the 2013 Metro Cup Champion. All four final placing games will be streamed live on Sunday beginning at 09:00 Warsaw time.
