And with two minutes left in the first period, Egypt doubled their lead with a strike from Moustafa Samir.

Five minutes into the second period Egypt went 3-0 up thanks to Hassane Mohamed.

Egypt struck again with one minutes left in the second period to go 4-0 up. Right at the restart,  Morocco scored through Anas El Hadaoui to end the second period 4-1 in favour of Egypt.

In the final period Morocco poured forward to salvage something from the game but Egypt held firm to claim the bronze.
