    A much stronger Orissa team defeated Karnataka 8-0. Team manager and former international player and coach cited lack of practice and regular women’s tournament for this loss. With only one team qualifying from each group, Orissa girls stand a good chance to qualify for semifinal after 3 win from as many matches. In spite of remaining three more matches, Karnataka’s chance look bleak.
