Match Review

China’s Gu Bingfeng struck late to secure a 2-1 win over Canada at Women’s ERGO Junior World Cup. Thanks to today’s victory China keep their chances open for a spot in Thursday’s quarter-finals. Canada’s quarter-final chances are over after suffering their second defeat in Pool B.

The crowd did not see any goals in the first half. Both teams also wasted several penalty corners that left it goalless at the break. 

China entered the second half with high energy. Their first attack led to a penalty corner which was neatly taken by Liu Yuyue to open the scoring. Canada were urgent to reclaim pride and won five penalty corners within a few minutes. 

Caashia Karrigten got the final touch on a Karli Johansen shot to bring the scores level. This was Canada’s first goal in this tournament. After equalising, Canada became the dominant side in this encounter but failed to capitalize on their chances.

However, China scored against the run of play with 83 seconds remaining in the match. China had won another penalty corner which was duly converted by Gu Bingfeng securing a narrow win over Canada.  

Voices after the match

Xu Dong Guo, coach China: “We were still very exhausted from yesterday’s match because all our players are very young. Today, it was tough playing against a very good team like Canada. I hope we can go further in this tournament. Our next match is against Argentina who are very strong. We will try our best to win it.”

Ian Rutledge, coach Canada: “We are happy with our overall performance today, but of course the outcome is disappointing. We had eleven penalty corners but, unfortunately, couldn’t convert most of them. We had a lot of scoring opportunities to win this match over and over again. We still have a lot to play for. South Africa is a tough opponent but we want to make sure to finish off the pool-play with a win.”
