3rd IKF Asia U19 & U16 Korfball Championships 2018: Day 4 Results & Images

As Day 4 action of the 1-Korf progresses we are getting close to having a clear picture of ranking spots. Only six more matches to go in order to know the finalists. Mainly there were no surprises on Day 4 of the U19 & U16 championships, except Hong Kong defeated China in U16 (11:6). Malaysia took the revenge of their yesterday’s loss in 2-Korf format from Thailand. This may be attributed to obviously different game tactics used in both the formats. Taipei remains undefeated on Day 4 and close to reserve their spot in the finals. Tomorrow in the second half we will have finals and other ranking matches for the 2-Korf format.
