USA claimed their first win of the Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy in London with a 2-0 triumph over host nation Great Britain in the final match of day four at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.

The result moved USA up to fourth place in the standings, keeping alive their hopes of medalling at this event. Great Britain are still mathematically capable of qualifying for the bronze medal game, but need a convincing win against Australia in their meeting on Saturday if they are to achieve that goal. 

Both of USA’s goals arrived in the third quarter of the match, with Emily Wold scoring from open play in the 39th minute before Kathleen Sharkey added a second two minutes later with a penalty corner.

“We knew that they were going to battle for the entire 60 minutes and we knew that it was going to take everything that we had”, said USA’s Katie Bam after the match. “We had to be constantly on our game defensively and also taking care of things on the attacking side and we did that today.”

Great Britain’s Lily Owsley said: “Everything’s there it’s just not quite happening. It’s not clicking. It’s not anything we need to worry about it’s just that things aren’t going our way. A few cards, shots, chances not quite falling for us but these things happen in sport. We need to put them right and step up.”
