Greece was the winner in the most important afternoon game of the second day in the World Women’s Junior Championship in Volos , in a crucial victory against Russia (16-13) that will normally give to the host country directly one of the tickets to the quarter finals, if they win Japan tomorrow afternoon (20:00 am).

Τhe suspense was major for at least 3 periods in the game, but in the last one, Greece ameliorated her defense and celebrated the second win in the competition, in front of the citizens of Volos, that applauded the effort of the Greek team.

Easy wins for Spain against Mexico (30-5), for USA against Ukraine (23-0) and for Japan against Great Britain (22-8) completed the puzzle of the four remaining games in day two.
