The encounter between the unbeaten teams from Germany and Spain finished tied 2-2 at Women’s ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup. Germany remain top of the pool, followed by Spain.
Host nation Germany could rely on their fans offering them a noisy welcome in Mönchengladbach’s Hockeypark. The C-Unit appreciated the support they received and scored an early goal thanks to Sabine Knüpfer who pushed the ball over the line in a crowded circle.
Afterwards Spain created a promising scoring opportunity but failed to convert when Julia Pons’ shot missed the empty goal. Anissa Korth could have doubled Germany’s lead when taking a penalty stroke. The flick was good but Spain’s goalkeeper Mariona Girabent managed to deflect the ball at the crossbar.
However, the Spanish team went for the equalizer and forced three penalty corners in a row midway through the first half. The third attempt was eventually put away by captain Berta Bonastre to level the score 1-1 at halftime.
After the break, Germany entered the pitch with great determination. It only took them six minutes to score their second goal. Darja Möllenberg linked well with Marilena Krauß who deflected Möllenberg’s pass into the goal. Spain equalised once more with Carola Salvatella placing her shot in the German goal.
