Match Review

New Zealand fought past Germany in the last match on Pitch 2 at the ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup in Mönchengladbach, winning by the narrowest of margins.

Germany v New Zealand 1-2 (0-1)

Motivated by an early goal from Michaela Curtis that gave them a psychological advantage, New Zealand put constant pressure on the German defense and had play confined to the German half of the field for long stretches of time, while Germany struggled to find a way through the ranks of the Kiwis.

The teams headed ino the break with New Zealand one goal ahead, after they were unable to extend their lead despite the superiority in the field, but after the restart, New Zealand immediately pulled further ahead, when Erin goud converted a penalty corner in the 37th minute.

Two goals down, Germany starte to push back harder and their efforts were rewarded six minutes later when team captain Rebecca Grote scored a goal from open play to narrow the gap. For the remainder of the match, Germany pushed for the equalizer. New Zealand held fast however, and didn't allow the Germans many opportunities to score. As the clock ticked down, Germany replaced their goalkeeper with a kicking back, and desperately pushed forward but the final whistle cut their plight short, and the Junior Black Sticks threw their arms in the air in celebration.

New Zealand finish 9th in the tournament, a place both teams coveted after disappointingly being confined to the lower half of the table after finishing third in their respective pools, while the German hosts take 10th place.
