Serbia made it to the Main Round

After two tough losses Serbia managed to have the upper hand against Chile. Uros Bregars team was bound to win, 30–16 in the end summarized a winning performance that got better after a slow start.

All-out-attack wasn´t a far-fetched tactic for Serbia, given the number of goals (90) Chile conceded in their first two preliminary games.

However, passing the 20 minute mark with four goals each was truly a comeback for Chile´s defense.

The first breakaways produced by clean passes where successful for Serbia. Chile replied, during a suspension for Serbia, 3–3 after seven minutes.

All of a sudden, aggressive defense was enough to get Serbia off-balance. Maura Alvarez between the posts for Chile gained confidence and Serbia was severely hindered.

Unfortunately for Chile the gaps in the defense line started to show. Serbia found their productive pace via the wings and reached 10–6 half-way. 

Aleksandra Stamenić was on top so far with four goals. In general,Serbias first half was no threat to any opponent in the coming Main Round.

Slowly but surely the lead was extended beyond the limit of Chiles capacity, the turnovers effected the performance even more. Nine goals in the final ten minutes pointed towards Serbia having some strength in reserve when mission accomplished. 

One game to go in the preliminary round in Herning, either Denmark or Romania will win group E.

Serbia–Chile 30–16 (10–6)
