Here’s an update on the World Cup of Softball VIII. Australia and Puerto Rico are set to go to the Seed #5 v. Seed #4 game. The winner of that game will progress to the Bronze Medal game. The lose will be out of the tournament. It is just a matter of tomorrow’s game, USA v. Puerto Rico, that will determine which team will have what place. Japan is scheduled to play tonight against the USA at 8pm central-time. The game will be the decider if Japan will be fighting for the Bronze Medal. If Japan loses, they will be automatically set as Seed #3 and will be going straight to the Bronze Medal game. If Japan wins, then the team will still be in a toss up between Canada, USA, and Japan to fight for the Gold Medal. If Japan wins tonight, the USA will have to beat Puerto Rico tomorrow to insure a place in the Gold Medal game. Below are the current team standings.
Puerto Rico 0-3
