Las Leonas captain Carla Rebecchi continued her remarkable form at the Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 in London, scoring twice to help Argentina to a 4-2 victory over New Zealand’s Black Sticks at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre. 

The result moved Argentina onto 10 points from their four matches, putting them in an excellent position to reach Sunday’s competition final, while Rebecchi’s personal goal’s haul at this event has reached seven.  

Florencia Habif opened the scoring for Argentina with a first quarter penalty corner before in-form attacker Rebecchi scored field goals either side of half time. Although Sophie Cocks pulled a goal back for New Zealand, Maria Granatto - another player who has been outstanding throughout this event - made the score 4-1 early in the fourth quarter before New Zealand’s Olivia Merry completed the scoring. 

I’m really happy because we really wanted to win this game”, said Rebecchi after the match. “We knew that it was very important if we wanted to reach the final and I think we played a good game, creating lots of scoring situations. Maybe we could have scored some more and maybe we can defend a little bit better because every time they entered the circle they got something, so I think that we still have things to improve.”

 

New Zealand captain Kayla Whitelock said: “We were a bit late out there and it was tough. We weren't clinical enough and now we are looking to take third. We didn't have aggressive energy like we did in the game before (Great Britain) so a little disappointed.”
