The Spanish players, from the beginning, reigned the game and in the 3rd minute Gao looked for the puck behind her back. Jana Cassi moved in front of the goal and scored with a quick wrist shot. It seemed that the Asians have not got enough power. They did not repeat a good performance from the quarterfinal against Team USA. "One of our reasons was really fatigue, therefore, it was not so perfect today,“ confirmed Mo Fei. "We are not satisfied with the result, but we scored again so we filled one of our aims at least,“ added scoring leader of Team China.

The second goal was scored in 8th on powerplay by Marta Castollová. Xiaolin Ding could answer quickly, but from the good spot she missed. Nevertheless, players in the white jerseys improved their game and few seconds after they reduced the goal difference. Zhang sent the puck into the goal crease, Mo Fei put her stick into the shot and the puck headed between Alvarado´s pads. The interesting game continued. Spanish players waited for other goals to Chinese powerplay, when Marlen Beltránová scored twice and got her team a good margin after first half.

The second period was started by Spanish pressure again. Ortuno in 25th minute netted the fifth goal from a rebound. Then Team China collapsed and Ingrid Martinez with Vanesa Abrisqueta added two goals. The winner was absolutely sure in this moment and Jana Cassi modified the final score to 8:1. So tommorow, Europeans will fight for fifth place and they would like to succeed again "We are looking forward to the next game. We are glad that we scored a lot and I think that we performed with a good game, although we had to play a little different style of hockey,“ said Marta Castollo after the win.
