Germany gets second win, Croatia beats Montenegro

Three of the four teams finished with two victories as the 4-nation tournament in Dubrovnik was concluded Tuesday night. Germany confirmed a successful 2 days beating Brazil 13-9 in the first of two matches of the evening session, just hours after their surprising 9-10 win over hosts Croatia. Marko Stamm led the scoring for the Germans in the win over the only non-European opponent in Dubrovnik netting 4 shots while veteran Heiko Nossek added 3. In the tournament's final match Croatia used a strong opening quarter (3-0) to beat Montenegro 7-5. Centre forward Luka Loncar, lefty Maro Jokovic and Sandro Sukno (pictured) each scored 2 goals in the nice victory for the Croats.

All teams except for Brazil will now finalise the preparation before travelling to Belgrade this weekend where the European Championships start on Sunday.
