The result saw Poland, whose dream of securing a place in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifier later this year was dashed following defeat to Japan yesterday, end the tournament on a positive note.
"The first quarter was difficult, I think the girls were sleeping," said Poland manager Lukasz Julga.
"In the second quarter we woke up and started to play.
"To win fifth place is amazing."
Mexico thrashed Fiji 5-0 in the seventh-place play-off.
