HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 25 (ACN) The Cuban women's handball team will be seeking today an important victory against the Dominican Republic in the Junior Pan American Games in Cali, Colombia.
Cuba needs to win, and preferably by a comfortable margin, to secure a place in the medal discussion, although in any case it will be necessary to wait for the result of the game between Brazil and Paraguay.
In the final game of the qualifying stage, Cuba will be opposite the Dominicans after losing Wednesday 23-40 to the Paraguayans, who dominated the game from start to finish, to the point that they finished the first half with a considerable advantage of 21-10.
For the Cubans, who were mostly imprecise and erratic, Liliamnis Rosabal and Yudisaday Rodriguez stood out with 6 and 3 goals, respectively. However, in their first appearance Tuesday, they defeated Brazil with a sensational 30-29, coming from behind almost the entire game but managing to tie the score just a few seconds short of the final whistle with a decisive goal by Jennifer Amanda.
The I Junior Pan American Games of Cali will be officially opened today and will conclude on December 5.
