GB Out To Make A Point

Great Britain need a point against Ukraine today to secure the gold medal and promotion to Division 1A of the World Championship.

Great Britain beat Romania 6-1 on Friday afternoon to make it four wins from four in this season’s Division 1B tournament in Zagreb.

Lithuania defeated Ukraine 2-1 in the days second match, which means GB sit top of the six-team group with 11 points from four matches.

Britain began the tournament with a 4-1 win over hosts Croatia, before a 4-3 overtime victory against Estonia.

A memorable 8-0 success against Lithuania followed and GB’s success against Romania means they remain unbeaten.

Any type of victory today would mean GB would win the group outright.

A point would be good enough even if Lithuania beat Croatia in regulation time to move level with Great Britain on 12 points. GB would advance thanks to their 8-0 victory on Wednesday over Lithuania as the table would come down to the head-to-head criteria.
