Match Review

Pushed forward by an enthusiastic and noisy crowd, host nation Germany defeated Belgium 6-1 in their first encounter at Women’s ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup. The German Juniors - also known as C-Unit - played with a lot of passion.

Lea Stöckel opened the scoring in the fourth minute. The hosts had good control of the match, doubling their deserved lead in the 16th minute when Jana Gonnermann finished good work from Charlotte Stapenhorst. The young Red Cheetahs struggled to challenge the much more experienced home team.

Sabine Knüpfer’s strike in the 24th minute gave the German C-Unit a convincing 3-0 lead. However, Belgium’s Red Cheetahs also got on the scoreboard a few seconds before halftime. Silke Steenackers won possession in the German circle and defeated goalkeeper Lisa Schneider in an one-on-one.

Germany won a penalty stroke at the beginning of the second half when Marilena Krauss was tackled in the circle. Team captain Rebecca Grote took the shot and converted without problems lifting the result to 4-1.

Belgium were short-handed for ten minutes after Pauline Leclef was sent off with a yellow card because of a sliding tackle. Germany took immediate advantage when Knüpfer contributed her second goal today making the result 5-1 in the 43rd minute. Seven minutes later Krauss extended the lead to 6-1.

Germany created a few more scoring opportunities from penalty corners in the last ten minutes but Belgium’s goalkeeper Elena Sotgiu performed very well.

Voices after the match:

Marc Herbert, German coach: "A good start into this tournament was very important to us because the girls were very excited the days before it started. Especially scoring early was an advantage. Now we will get prepared for taking on Spain."
