The Netherlands secured their fourth win of the ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup with a 9-1 over South Africa to set up a semi-final with India. South Africa suffered their first defeat in this tournament and will now face Spain in a 5-8 placement match.
South Africa’s Toni Marks surprised with the opening goal of the match, but The Netherlands fought back with a double-strike from their penalty corner expert Lieke van Wijk and goals from Lisanne de Lange and Xan de Waard turning the score into 4-1 at halftime.Like the previous match, this game was also played in four quarters of 17.5 minutes each because of excessive heat here in Mönchengladbach.
The third and fourth quarter saw The Netherlands take control of the game with South Africa struggling to get out of their own half. Dutch top scorer van Wijk added two more penalty corner goals, lifting her tournament total to 12. Despite being up 6-1, the reigning world champions were not finished scoring as goals from Maria Verschoor, Samantha Saxton and de Lange secured a stunning 9-1 victory.
Voices after the match:
Grace Balsdon, goal scorer England: "I think our team defending has improved day by day and in the end we won the game today. It was not pretty but we did our job and we just defended. It is nice to play countries like Australia, they are very good team and the challenge was there. We were prepared to go, we had nothing to lose. That was our challenge and we made it. It means everything to play for your country and then scoring the goal that takes you to the semi-final, there is no better feeling."
