Favorites make no mistake on European Juniors opening day

The men's 19 & under European Junior Championships got underway on Sunday in Tbilisi, Georgia and saw all favorites kicking off their tournament by gaining the first win straight away. Serbia raced past Urkaine 13-3 in the first match of the day followed by Russia who recorded a tough 6-4 win over Romania. Hungary then had little trouble overcoming Slovakia, 16-7, and Spain were always in front against the Netherlands who managed to stay close but eventually had to settle for the 13-10 defeat. Another one-sided affair was to be seen when Montenegro downed France 12-4 and Croatia who conceded just 4 goals as well. They defeated Germany 11-4. Italy did the same but powered its way to a dominating 19-4 victory over Turkey and Greece silenced the hopes of the home crowd in the day's final match when they held local heroes from Georgia to a 3-6 final score in their favour.
