Sunday found us in the fog, but soon after we were again at the sun shine terrain. We played for the rank. The day began with a game between Athletic and Prince. With a multitude of good hits, and excellent performance of princesses, Prince won by the score 16: 2, which put The Prince to the semifinals. In the semifinals, the Prince welcomed The Challengers from Switzerland. Ready to play, having more standard players than on Saturday, the Prince won 16: 0. Effort and will, paid off and Princ successfully returned to the top, one step away from winning the tournament. In the finals, the Princess was waited by New Bologna. The game was interesting and tense, but unfortunately, with tremendous will, desire and enthusiasm, the Prince lost concentration and Bologna proved to be much better prepared for the final. The final match ends 11: 3 in favor of the Italians, and The Princess got silver.
