The United States of America (USA) are currently hosting the Men’s IHF Trophy North American & Caribbean Zone I Championships at the Lifezone 360 Facility in West Dundee, Illinois this week (8-12 May).


With the tournament at the midway stage, the picture is becoming clearer about who holds the regional strength in this developmental tournament.


In the youth competition (players born on or after 1 January 2000), Canada are the team to beat, having won both of their games so far, against Martinique (33:26) and a dominating 20-goal victory against the hosts USA (39:19).


However, the hosts did have something to celebrate as a goal in the closing seconds against Martinique last night ensured a 34:33 victory.


For the juniors (players born on or after 1 January 1998), Martinique are looking strong, having beaten Canada (28:24) and Dominica (42:19) in their two group games but hosts USA are also showing their strength with an impressive 60:14 win over Haiti and 46:15 win over Dominica.


With just two match days remaining, the teams which finish top of their respective age categories in the round-robin tournament will be crowned IHF Trophy winners.
