The Dutch continued their march to the medal round with a 3-2 victory over Korea. Dirkse van den Heuvel scored one of the game-winning goal in the second half. They have officially qualified for the medal round and will take the top seed with a victory or tie against Great Britain; A loss would put the Brits ahead of the Dutch.
