Match Report

Korea 5, Russia 1

Korea secured its spot in tomorrow’s final after cruising to a 5-1 win in the final day of round robin action at the Electric Ireland FIH Road to London tournament.

The game was a mere formality for the sixth-ranked team in the world, which made easy work of #20 Russians. A pair of goals coming less than a minute apart in the first 12 minutes of play set the tone for the Koreans. Hyo Sik You put in a top shelf goal and Jong Hyun Jang easily converted the penalty corner for the early lead. Korea put in a last field goal to take a 3-0 lead into the break.

The Koreans continued to dominate play in the second half. Jong Ho Seo scored a field goal from the center of the circle nine minutes into action and Jan followed up with his second penalty corner of the game as Korea jumped out to a convincing 5-0 lead. Russia countered with a penalty corner of its own to get on the board and produce the biggest cheer from the crowd of the morning, but the goal did little to change the outcome as Korea went on to the four-goal win.

Korea will join the winner of the Ireland-Malaysia game in Sunday’s final. The winner of that game will be the 11th team qualified for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Russia is locked to play in tomorrow’s bronze medal game against the loser of the Ireland-Malaysia match.
