Belarus were still at a disadvantage at the end of the first half, and although they were able to equalise, they had already turned in the final third with the Briton’s 3-1 lead. More than 12 minutes from the end, Britain consolidated its lead to a three-goal goal, but to no avail the match looked smooth, with 2:26 before the bagpipe, Belarus became increasingly distant. Ultimately, the islanders held their advantage, so after defeating the French in 2019, they pulled another big scalp out.
Canada took a lead against Norway in less than 22 seconds, and Adam Henrique scored in the third inning. True, in the second half, the unfavorable Norwegians worked in just over a minute and a half, but the Canadians scored two more goals for the opponent’s goal, winning 4-2.
