Japan won through to the second round with a 12-4 victory over Venezuela but it was the style in which Japanese played that impressed. Counter-attacks, accurate shooting and sharp combinations proved the decisive factor. Akane Yamazaki opened the game with two counter-attack goals for Japan and Stephany Rivero replied for Venezuela. Japan led 3-1 at the quarter and shot out to 6-1 by halftime with Yamazaki gaining a third from outside. Rivero opened the second half with a bounce shot from the top and Fabiola Godoy joined the resurgence for 6-3. However, a Japanese flurry had the score at 9-3 by the break. Rivero scored again in the fourth but Yamazaki was part of the tidal wave, gaining her fourth en route to the victory.
