Day four was a big day for the men and women of Team Great Britain. As the first day outside of the preliminary round, it was time to really kick things into high gear and show the other teams what we’re made of! With a few more wins to write home about, we daresay that Team Great Britain is looking stronger than ever, and we’re excited to see what the rest of the tournament holds for us! We’re going to run through exactly what went down in our fourth Team GB Daily Recap presented by Herbal One.
Women’s Team Great Britain vs. Women’s Team Slovakia
There’s no denying that the ladies of Team Great Britain looked great during their game against Slovakia. There was no keeping up with them. They were too fast and too focused. We’ve talked about how the ladies have started to come together as a unit, and they continue to showcase their talents during their time at this tournament. They were able to dispatch Slovakia with a beautiful final score of 7-1. This win would move the ladies’ team into a Semi-Final game against Slovakia the following day for a chance to play in the gold medal game!

Master’s Team Slovakia vs. Master’s Team Great Britain
Unfortunately, the Master’s team did not experience similar results against Slovakia. There’s no doubt that Team GB was giving all they had, but Slovakia took a big lead and managed to hold onto it. The game ended with a final score of 12-1 for Slovakia. Unfortunately, this is the final game for Team Great Britain, but we’re proud of our Master’s spirit and determination throughout the tournament.

Men’s Team Great Britain vs. Men’s Team Russia
Determined not to end the day on a sour note, the Men’s Great Britain Team stormed the floor and absolutely dominated Team Russia. They were able to win this Quarter-Final game handily with a final score of 10-1. Much like the ladies’ game against Slovakia, Russia just couldn’t keep up with Team Great Britain. They found their groove early on and used it to their advantage. This beautiful win moves them on to play against Team Canada in the Semi-Finals the following day. This will be a challenging game, but if Team GB keeps their head on a swivel, there’s no doubt it’ll be an interesting one too.
