Defending champions Argentina have taken a huge step towards securing a place in the final of the Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London thanks to a 2-1 victory over Australia at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in London. 

The result moves Argentina onto seven points from three games having started day three locked together on four points with the Oceania champions. 

Argentina’s goals came from two of their most experienced campaigners, with Noel Barrionuevo firing home a third quarter penalty corner before team captain Carla Rebecchi scored a superb solo goal - her fifth of the tournament - to double the advantage seven minutes from time. A brilliant individual goal from Kathryn Slattery reduced the deficit for the Hockeyroos with three minutes remaining, but Las Leonas held on for the win.  

“I am very happy with the result”, said Argentina captain Carla Rebecchi after the match. “The system of the Champions Trophy means that every match is important, so to play in the final means that you have to have more points than the others to get there. Today was a very important match because Australia had the same number of points as us.” 

Regarding her own excellent form here in London, Rebecchi said: “As a forward I always like to score goals and I have been training very hard this summer because I have been recovering from the knee injury that happened last year. I want to go for gold in Rio so I started with a very intense preparation for this year.”

Hockeyroos Head Coach Adam Commens said: “It was obviously disappointing to not get the result, but I thought the way that we played and conducted ourselves was encouraging. If we’re going to win in Rio we need to make the most of the chances we get not only with field chances but with penalty corners.”
