Rogers-Dalhausser win easily to move on

by Unknown at 3:46 PM

Todd and Phil easily defeated a Georgian team, 2-0 (21-15, 21-15), to move on to the 4th round of the FIVB Adelaide Open. The #2 seed will next face the Japanese team of Asahi-Shiratori, seeded #25.

Gibb-Rosenthal and Fuerbringer-Jennings, both still in the winners bracket, both face battles against higher-seeded Chinese and German teams, respectively. Both matches begin today at 4:10PM PST (3/28 at 9:40 AM CDT, which is a weird-ass time zone).

Finally, the American team of Williams-Metzger - also playing in the contenders bracket - are facing a very strong Austrian team of Schact-Slack today. Not sure why Lambert-Metzger aren't playing together in this tourney, but without a few big FIVB wins, their chances for Beijing '08 are all but sunk.
