US Youth Squad Survives QF Challenge by 1 IMP

USA Blue defeated Greece 46-45 in the quarterfinal round of the Under-26 Swiss Teams at the 1st World Youth Congress. The U.S. squad (Jason Chiu, Kevin Dwyer, Kevin Fay, Jeremy Fournier, Justin Lall and Matthew Meckstroth) won the first half of the match 30-11, but Greece stormed back in the second half to win it 34-16. This left Greece 1 IMP short, however, and USA Blue now advances to the semifinal round against Italy Red.
