FIVB Zagreb: US to play for bronze

by Unknown at 2:43 PM

The US team of Matt Fuerbringer and Casey Jennings (15) lost their semifinal match today at the Zagreb Open to a strong Chinese team in an insanely close match, losing 1-2 (16-21, 29-27, 12-15).

Fuerbs-Jennings will play tomorrow for the bronze medal against the Brazilian 11th seeds, Marcio-Fabio.

Xu-Wu also dispatched Americans Gibb-Rosenthal (7) earlier in the day to storm their way to China's first men's finals appearance in international beach volleyball competition.
