South Korea vs South Africa 7-1

Swanepoel must have had an on-game. Despite facing the most shots in the tournament, she held the Korean women to just 7 goals. Korea peppered her with 64 shots, but it was South Africa was the first score with Schuurman getting the goal at 11:05 of the first. However, Korea quickly tied it up and they finished the period 1-1. In the second and third Korea picked up the pace and in a four minute span mid-period scored 3 more goals making 5-1 and running away with the game. They added two more in the third. Against the top team, it was South Africa's closest. Possibly with the tournament already in hand, and no need to worry about any kind of tie-breaking the Korean team wasn't worried about running up the scoreboard.

For Korea, Shin lead all goaltenders with a 98% save percentage and 0.52 GAA. Jongah Park finished second in points overall with 7 goals (1st) and 8 points. Sun-woo Bang was +9 on the tournament to take first.
With the victory and end of the tournament, the Koreans will be promoted to the next division. South Africa should be relegated to the qualification round.

Iceland vs Belgium 2-1 OT

As expected, the Iceland Belgium game was a close one. The teams had an equal amount of offensive goals going into the game. Belgium actually increased their shot total and both teams finished nearly equal. Iceland took the lead near the end of the first when Ryan scored. They held the lead till mid-way through the third. After two listless periods, Belgium exploded for 16 shots, almost as many as they've gotten in entire games before. Frere was rewarded on the powerplay tying the game at 1. However, their joy would be short lived as very early in overtime Agustsdottir scored for Iceland giving them the win. Both teams finished with 5 points, but due to the tie-breaking rules Iceland takes fourth place.

Croatia vs Spain 1-4

Despite Spain's near perfect play in the tournament, they still had to fight for second place. Conveniently the winner of today's game would take second place. Spain edged Croatia slightly in shots, 34 to 33. The first period was filled with penalties, but neither team could take advantage of them. 21 seconds into the second period though, Calero got Spain on the board first and two minutes later Hernandez scored to make it 2-0. Siranovic scored two and a half minutes after that to make it 2-1, but that was as close as the Croatians would get. 90 seconds later and Ortuno got the Spanish girls an insurance goal. Early in the third Merino scored to make it 4-1. With three Spanish penalties in the third, Croatia was still unable to score, and even ending the game on the advantage they didn't pull the goalie to go for it.

For Croatia, Filipec lead the tournament in overall points with 11, 5 goals and 6 assists (1st), Matic was second in assists with 5.
