Not sure I'd bother to show up if I were Kelsey Griffin. She could be the best player in camp and she'd still need Mitchell and Whitcomb to get hurt to be on the final squad.

It amuses me that likely the only meaningful game in the Australia group is the very first one being played. Brazil-Puerto Rico is almost certainly a playoff for the third qualifying spot, before the Aussies and French play a meaningless matchup and then get to blow everyone else out for the rest of the weekend.

Wish we were in this group.

It's the group of ... life?

Bad news for Jenna O'Hea. Hurt her wrist in the OT game on Sunday and it turned out to be a fracture. Out for 10-12 weeks. Big blow for the Southside Flyers.
Sara Blicavs replaces her in the Opals 12.
