Women’s World League Super Final, Round 3, Group A:
Canada-Hungary 13-12 (4-2, 3-5, 3-1, 3-4)
Top scorers from the Hungarian national team: Parks, Elise, Valje, Rybanska 2-2, Kizthely, Laimer, Gorissaty, Zilagyi 1-1.
Tokyo Olympics-preparing Fed captain Attila Peru — who beat the Japanese in the first round and then lost to the Russians in the second — had a three-goal handicap midway through the second quarter, but tied with a fine hair before the big break.
In the middle of the last season, the Canadians scored two goals, and the Hungarians fought until the last moment, but in the end the equalizer did not work out.
The Hungarians thus finished third in their group, meaning that they will meet the second-placed in the other group, the US team or the Spanish national team, in the quarter-finals on Thursday.
