[ASIAN GAMES 2018] Women's Tournament, Day 3 — Japan Crushes Thailand, Kazakhstan Dominates Hong Kong

In the first match of the day, Kazakhstan crushed Hong Kong with 22:2. China followed with a glorious victory against Indonesia (20:4), and Japan made sure to keep Thailand low on the standings (19:5).

The match against Hong Kong was a triumph as Novikova Anna and Myrzabekova Zamira scored the most goals for Kazakhstan. Each of them added four goals to their list. They completely dominated all the quarters, leaving Hong Kong with no chance to even get close to their level.

This is their second victory on the 2018 Asian Games. Tomorrow they’ll play against the host of the tournament.

Arima Yumi and Inaba Akari were the top scorers on Japan’s side of the pool against Thailand. With 19 balls netted behind Thailand’s goalkeeper, they climbed to the second spot in the group standing.

The first place is still firmly held by China, who dominated over Indonesia. Two more days are to come, and we will see if the teams are going to be able to hold their positions.
