In a battle of wunderkinder in Thursday’s FIVB Porec, recent USC graduates Kelly Claes and Sara Hughes defeated Brazil’s 18-year-old Eduarda Lisboa and veteran Agatha Bednarczuk 12-21, 22-20, 15-12 to finish atop pool C and earn a bye into Friday’s round of 16 playoffs against Taiana Lima and Elize Maia of Brazil.

American men Casey Patterson and partner Theo Brunner and Phil Dalhausser and Nick Luceno also had a good day.

In the five-start tournament in Croatia, teams completed pool play and the first round of elimination playoffs.

The USA’s Lauren Fendrick and Lane Carico also booked a round-of-16 berth with a 21-19, 21-17 win over Germans Nadja Glenzke and Julia Grossner. Fendrick and Carico face  Canadians Sarah Pavan/Melissa Humana-Paredes.

Americans Summer Ross and Brooke Sweat failed to advance after a tough 17-21, 21-16, 15-13 loss to Brazil’s Taiana Lima and Elize Maia in the first round of the winners bracket.

Emily Day and Brittany Hochevar finished 1-2 in pool play but did not advance when they came up short on the points won/lost ratio to Poland’s Jagoda Gruszczynska/Kinga Kolosinska.

Other pool winners include Brazil’s Larissa Franca/Talita Antunes, Barbara Seixas/Fernanda Alves, Canada’s Pavan/Humana-Paredes and Brandie Wilkerson/Heather Bansley, the Czech Republic’s Barbora Hermannova/Marketa Slukova and Kristyna Kolocova/Michala Kvapilova, and Switzerland’s Nina Betschart/Tanja Huberli.

The pool winners will be challenged by the round of 32 winners: Germans Chantal Laboreur/Julia Sude, Victoria Bieneck/Isabel Schneider, and Laura Ludwig/Margareta Kozuch, Swiss Joana Heidrick/Anouk Verge-Depre, Finns Riikka Lehtonen/Taru Lahti, and Australians Louise Bawden/Taliqua Clancy.

In men’s play, teams completed one additional pool play match Thursday. In American results, Patterson and Brunner moved to 2-0 against Croatian soccer star Ivan Perisic/Niksa Dellorco 21-11, 21-16, setting up a showdown with Brazil’s Saymon Barbosa/Alvaro Filho Friday for control of the pool.

Dalhausser/Lucena got back on track with a 2-0 win over Canada’s Sam Pedlow and Sam Schachter 21-19, 27-25. Dalhausser/Lucena’s final pool play opponent will be Canada’s Ben Saxton/Chaim Schalk on Friday.

Taylor Crabb and Jake Gibb fell to 0-2 following a closely fought 17-21, 21-19, 15-11 match with Brazil’s Saymon Barbosa/Alvaro Filho. Crabb/Gibb will face Croats Perisic/Dellorco Friday with an elimination-round berth at stake.

After two of three matches pool leaders are Americans Patterson/Brunner, Austrians Clemens Doppler/Alexander Horst, Canadians Sam Pedlow/Sam Schachter, Poles Grzegorz Fijalek/Michal Bryl, Brazil’s Pedro Solberg/Gustavo Carvalhaes and Alison Cerutti/Bruno Schmidt, Dutchmen Alexander Brouwer/Robert Meeuwsen, and Spain’s Pablo Herrera/Adrian Gavira.
