With the men’s B-Division programme now complete, the play-off situation has become clear.

In Group A, Finland picked up their sixth win on Thursday evening, an 11-4 victory over Estonia to top the rankings, and go straight to the semi-finals.

Behind them were Wales and Ireland, and they, along with England, shared a 4-3 win-loss record. However, the results among these three teams meant that Wales ranked second, Ireland third and England fourth. As a result, Wales and Ireland move onto the qualification games, while England’s campaign is now over.

The top three teams in Group B were Netherlands, France and Latvia. Netherlands and France shared the same 6-1 win-loss record, but Netherlands ranked first because they won their head-to-head encounter.

Finland and Netherlands now go onto Friday evening’s semi-finals, to meet the winner of the qualification games, scheduled for Friday afternoon. In these games Ireland face France, and Latvia play Wales.
