Brazil scored just their third win in international competition and Colombia's A squad is perfect at the end of day three.

 
 
 
 

Colombia A 8, Argentina B 1

One of the pre-tournament favourites, Colombia, will finish the preliminary round with an 8-1 victory over Argentina B on Wednesday afternoon.

Nathan Jones was the star of the opening round of the tournament, scoring an extra goal to go on top of the four goal game on Monday. Alejandro Villalon and Kevin Medina had three markers each while Juan Diego Fierro scored four goals and an assist. 

Argentina finished the opening round with a win and a loss, having beaten Brazil's B team 6-1 on Tuesday. 

Brazil A 4, Colombia B 1

For just the third time in the history of their team, Brazil was victorious on the ice after beating Colombia's B squad 4-1.

Luis Custodio, Joao Vasconcelos, Henrique Deganoi and Daniel Vannuchi all scored for Brazil, giving the team five different goal scorers for five goals over two games. Allen Ruane was strong in both performances, allowing just three goals for a team that's hoping to improve on a previous bronze medal performance.

Colombia's opening round was tough, with the team recording just a single goal. An individual effort by Kelsey Murkin provied to be the team's only goal in two games of action, while the squad allowed 11 goals.

Mexico A 5, Argentina A 0

In the final game of the round robin, Mexico's top team finished with a 5-0 victory over Argentina on Wednesday.

Star player Carlos Gomez finished the preliminary round as Mexico's best player, posting three goals and four assists for seven points. Guillermo Martinez and Jorge Perez Luethje scored three goals each, while defenseman Thomas Giorgi had four goals and two assists.

In two previous meetings at the Pan-Am, Mexico took home 9-1 and 10-1 victories, meaning that the loss on Wednesday was the closest Argentina has been when facing the Division IIB World Championship team.
