15:30 -GAME 18 / Australia (AUS) – China (CHN): 10-6 (4-1, 2-2; 1-2, 3-1)

18:30 – GAME 19 / USA – Croatia (CRO): 9-11 (1-3, 2-3; 4-2, 2-3)

However the United States reacted with great determination in the 3rd period, which they won 4-2, with three goals scored by the irresistible Azevedo. At the beginning of the last period the US team was just one goal down (7-8) and the game was still open. The Americans tied with Bailey (8-8), almost three minutes inside the last period; the Croatians managed to re-catch the lead 90 seconds later with Jokovic (8-9), which the increased a couple of minutes later on a breakaway action finalised by Boskovic.

20:00 - GAME 20 / Serbia (SRB) – Spain (ESP): 12-10 (4-4, 3-3; 4-3, 1-0)

Exciting match between two excellent teams, featuring different characteristics but displaying an equivalent strength, at least in the first part of the match: at half time the score was 7-7; in the third period Serbia exhibited a greater dynamism and went ahead with two early goals scored by Prlainovic. Spain answered almost every Serbian offence and at the end of the 3rd quarter they were just one goal down (the score was 11-10 for Serbia). Prlainovic top scored the game with four goals.
