Fifth-Place Game: Czech Republic 5, Brazil 1
There was no placement game letdown for the Czech Republic in its second consecutive game against Brazil. The Czechs earned fifth place at the Men’s Olympic Qualification Tournament after a 5-1 win against Brazil.
Tomas Prochacka scored two penalty corner goals in the first nine minutes and the Czechs never looked back. Stepan Bernatek also scored twice in the win with his goals being split between the first and second half. In between the Bernatek markers, Brazil scored its lone goal of the game in the first minute of the second half. Thiago Pacheco got his team on their feet with his first goal of the event. Martin Seemann closed the scoring with four minutes left to bring the final to 5-1.
The loss means Brazil goes home without any points from the qualifier, but the #42-ranked team earned valuable experience in its six outings and even went home with some hardware after getting the Fair Play trophy.
