Mexico was doing quite well until 3rd quarter :wall:


Anyway, congratulations to the Serbian team for their victory :thumbup:


Yes, this was a really close game in the first 2 periods, a classic upset game, but unfortunately the start of the 3rd frame was disastrous for Mexico. The Serbs came out of the dressing room after the 2nd intermediate like a completely another new team, they significantly increased their activity and began to dominate the ice, especially in skating speed was the most striking difference. Serbia did just outskated Mexico in last third yesterday and this was the main reason for the 4-0 last period score.


but in other side, if Mexico will be able to play like they did in the first 2 periods also at least in 1 or 2 full games, I can see here a room to avoid the relegation.


This tournament can be actually very fun to watch and really interesting, especially looking forward for tonight´s clash Croatia vs Serbia, possibly the decider of this tourney. Croatia impressed yesterday with one very above level perfomace against the Netherlands. Very dominant and easy win 7-0 over the Dutch was a quite surprising for me, will be interesting to watch their match against Serbia tonight, really :bounce:


also aBenelux derby is always a derby to follow, even in Ice Hockey U20, BEL vs NED can be today also a interesting one, especially the dutch will certainly want to rehab themselves after last nights failure

Only in this part of Europe.

On the other hand,interesting outcome. Croatia destroyed Netherlands night before,they were clear favorites.

Yes, I was right, this is gonna be a really interesting tournament, fun to watch. Croatia yesterday with a real masterpiece of hockey, I was literally excited by their performance against the Netherlands. but today it was quite surprisingly very poor, a one sided match. Serbia had not a impressive start of the tourney yesterday, too slow in the first 2 frames, but today they dominated the ice and the game, also the Netherlands yesterday with a embarassing performance against the hosts but today they came with suddenly so inspiring and totally supperior performance over the Belgians, who yesterday easily dominated Israel, team that today at their turn easily beat Mexico, who was more than equal opponent to Serbia in the first 40 minutes yesterday...


Gonna be fun this tournament...:d
