The last Pool C match started at 9.30h local time with Czech Republic vs Turkey. After a slow start, Turkey was the first to be on the score sheet: İsa BAKAR via a field goal, meaning a 0-1 score at half-time. In the 42nd minute Ondřej CHABR was twice unmarked and scored the equalized and also the 2-1. Just after the start of the last quarter it was İsa BAKAR again – with his 4th goal of the event – to score via a Penalty Stroke. 5 minutes before the end Patrik DUBINA converted a PC, which his teammate Adam VAŇKO also did in the last minute; final score 4-2 to Czech Republic. This result meant Czech Republic ends 5th, Ukraine 6th and Turkey 7th.

The bronze medal game went between France and Italy. Their pool A match ended in a 6-1 win to France, but this time it would be a closer contest. 2 goals of Felix DIONISI VICI in the 11th (field goal) and 19th (PC) gave the Italians a 0-2 lead. A minute later Jules VERRIER was able to put a penalty stroke behind goalkeeper Simone CALZOLARI.

Louis BAILLEUL equalized for France directly after the start of the 2nd half. Just before the end of the 3rd quarter France got 2 penalty corners which it was able to convert via Raïf GONESSA and Thomas

ASSOIGNON. Italy started the last quarter of their event in the hope to score at least 2 goals to secure shoot-outs, but Jules VERRIER with his 6th of the event, made the gap 3. One more goal, via Leonardo D’AMICO, was all that Italy could make in the last quarter, so the end score was 5-3 to France, assuring they took home the bronze medals.

The Final was Poland-Austria. Nikodem WOŹNIAK put the Polish boys in the lead in the 8th minute with a field goal. The home team, supported by a great number of spectators, made the 1-1 via Benjamin KÖLBL in the 2nd quarter. Just before half-time Fülöp LOSONCI was unmarked at the top of the circle and his backhand shot was just too good for the excellent Polish Goalkeeper Dawid SKRZYPIEC. The 2 strong teams showed they are very skillful players and a great potential for their future U21 and Senior teams. Austrian captain Benjamin KÖLBL extended the lead to 1-3 in the 46th minute, scoring his 2nd of the match. Poland kept pressing which resulted in the 2-3 via penalty corner from Dominik TURIJ 8 minutes before the end. Poland tried, but no more goals were scored, so Austria won the match and the event!

Top scorers were 3 players, with 6 goals each: Felix DIONISI VICI from Italy, Fülöp LOSONCI from Austria and Jules VERRIER from France.

Best Goalkeeper was Lukas SCHIESSER of Austria and Best Player became Mathis CLÉMENT, captain of France.
