HWL 7-8 Classification match: Korea 4-7 Germany

Germany have ended a disappointing campaign at the Argentina Hockey World League in positive fashion, thrashing Korea 7-4 to secure a 7th place finish at the event in San Miguel de Tucuman.

Hannah Krüger and Marie Mävers both scored doubles in a crowd pleasing second half that featured nine goals.

The first half of the early morning meeting between the European champions and the Asian giants finished with scores locked together at 1-1. Eileen Hoffman opened the scoring before Cheon Seul Ki tied things up three minutes later.

Goals from Kruger and Charlotte Stapenhorst gave Germany a 3-1 lead early in the second half, but Korea restored parity thanks to a brilliant tomahawk effort from Park Seung A and a second for Cheon Seul Ki.

The teams took the score to 4-4 with goals from Kruger and An Hyo Ju before a late rally saw Germany power to victory. Mävers scored twice before Julia Müller netted Germany's sixth goal of the half and seventh of the game to complete the scoring.
