The Brazilian women’s goalie team beat China 1-0 in the second half of extra time this Wednesday (1st) and is in contention for an unprecedented medal at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo (Japan). The Brazilians face the United States today (1st) after beating the Russian Paralympic Committee RBC 5 to 3 in another match for the quarterfinals. The women’s golf final between Brazil and the United States will take place this Thursday (2) at 7:30 am (Brasilia time) at the Maguhari Messi Convention Center in Siba.

At the team level, Brazil does not have an easy life. Against the United States, the Brazilians lost the opening game of the game 6-4. As a result, the hosts drew 4-4 with Japan and Turkey lost 8-4, forcing the country to win the last round to cross the stage. But against current African champions Egypt, the South American team won 11-1.


Brazil and China played a perfectly balanced game. The attacks of both teams were not sharp, however the defense was well adjusted. During the first two periods of 20 minutes, the score remained unchanged: 0-0.

With the balance in normal time, the venue for the semifinals was controversial with two extra minutes to three minutes. Whoever scores the first goal (the golden goal) will advance to the next level. In the first stage, there was the ball without throwing the net. In the second half, Ana Carolina Custidio shook the net and scored for Brazil in the semifinals.
