The Greeks got off to a great start, finding themselves ahead 5-0 after the first period of play. They would then extend their lead to 11-0 in the second period, but the Cubans would reduce the deficit to 11-3 by halftime. Greece then went up 16-3 after three periods, and ultimately came out on top 20-4.

Alkisti Avramidou was undoubtedly the MVP, as she led the Greeks with six goals. Eleni Xenaki was also a key contributor, as she scored three goals.

Greece will wrap up group play on Thursday against Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan beat Cuba 9-6 and lost to Spain 18-6 in their previous two group matches.
