Belarusian girls stormed past Wales 9:2 and beat Ukraine 8:0. The only team with 4 victories will finish the tournament playing against Lithuania and Wales on Saturday.

The hosts and Welsh team have 4 points and are fighting for the 2nd place and a ticket to the top European division for the next year. Lithuania lost to Ukraine 1:2 today, but managed to get a draw 3:3 with Wales after falling down 0:3 in the 1st period.

There was also a Lithuanian – Welsh battle in the boys tournament. Lithuanians scored first this time, but Welsh team responded with 4 goals in a row and won the game 8:5. Belarus beat Denmark also 8:5 and gave another painful lesson to Finish boys (18:0).
