Russia vs. Belarus

August 16, 2012

I can’t find a box score, but Russia defeated Belarus, 46-0, on August 4th to claim a spot in the European Championship C-Group tournament coming up next month. It was Belarus’ first national team game.

On September 14th, Serbia will take on the Netherlands, and Switzerland will play Russia. The third place and championship games will be on the 16th, with the winner of the tournament being promoted to B-Group and playing in the 2013 tournament.

Russia won the C-Group tournament in 2003 to advanced to B-Group in 2004. However, financial issues prevented them from fielding a team since then.
