The girls are rolling and are looking to do something that hasn't happened since 2009; capture the illusive Gold medal at the FIVB U21 World Championships.

Sophie Bukovec and Tia Miric will take on Dumbauskaite/Povilaityte of Lithuania around 11:30 a.m. PT/ 2:30 p.m. ET for a chance to be crowned Queens of the Beach. 

The pair exorcised some demons by defeating Kociolek/Gruszczynska of Poland 19-21, 21-13, 15-12 in the quarterfinals. They followed that up with a gritty 23-21, 25-23 win over Betschart/Eiholzer of Switzerland who were previously undefeated.
