Sweden qualifies for the semifinal with full amount of points
Also in their fourth game the Swedish players gained two points. In the morning match they beat Latvia 12:4 and will qualify for the semifinals from the first place in Group A. They didn’t lose a single point in their four games.

The defender Quist appeared in the first Swedish line again. But the coach, Kent Göransson, changed the first line a bit. The forwards Jihde and Djurling were joined by sniper Magnus Svensson and the new attacking commando scored nine out of the twelve Swedish goals.

Fredrik Djurling scored six times and Svensson added a hat-trick. But the Latvians showed brave performance against the strong opponents. They fought hard until the very last second. Three minutes before the end they already pulled their goalie but they did not manage to do anything with the score 4:12.

Hence, the Latvians finished third in Group A and on Sunday they will play in a 5th place game.
