Klaassen leads way in top scorers list

After three games in the preliminary round of the 2013 World Championships women's tournament the first marking point for the top scorers list is there. Dutch Lieke Klaassen is on top with thirteen goals so far shooting an incredible 81.3%. Her 4-for-4 shooting performance in the 12-all draw with Russia today surely helped her getting on top. Second is Hungary's Rita Keszthelyi with 11 so far, after a relatively quit offensive performance against Kazakhstan which the Hungarians won 18-7 while the team's top shooter netted a pair in that game. Three players are tied for third place all scoring ten goals so far. Spain's centre forward Andrea Blas, after exploding for 6 against Uzbekistan today, Hungary's second top three representative centre forward Barbara Bujka, who scored a triple against Kazakhstan and the top of the women's scorers list gets completed by Russia's Ekaterina Prokofyeva who went scoreless against the Netherlands today shooting 0 for 5.
