by Unknown at 6:13 PM

The US team of Gibb-Rosenthal (18) won another upset victory over the 7th-seeded Chinese team, while Matt Fuerbringer and Casey Jennings (27) lost to the 14th-seed German team. Gibb-Rosy have one remaining 4th round match, but are now guaranteed a spot in tomorrow's semis.

Casey and Furbs will have a tough match today to stay in the Adelaide tournament, playing either the 1st-seeded Russians or 10th-seeded Brazilian team.

Rogers-Dalhausser (2) easily defeated their Japanese opponents in the contenders bracket and will now face the strong Swiss team of Heyer-Heuscher (12).
