Netherlands hold off Black Sticks challenge to reach Semi Finals

Reigning Olympic champions the Netherlands have become the first team to book their place in the semi-finals of the Argentina Hockey World League Final thanks to a hard earned 1-0 win over New Zealand on a baking hot morning here in Tucuman.  

A second half goal from Lidewij Welten proved to be enough for Oranje to edge past a Black Sticks team that gave their opponents a seriously hard time in a brutal, energy-sapping contest.  

The Netherlands’s opponents in Saturday’s semi-final will be the winner of the evening match between host nation Argentina or Korea. An Argentina win this evening would set up a re-match of the London 2012 Olympic final, where the Netherlands claimed the Gold medal with a 2-0 victory over Las Leonas.

Searing temperatures in Tucuman brought the warm weather protocol into play, with the competing teams having a short break in the middle of each match in order to get some much needed fluid on board.

Netherlands had the better of the chances in the first half, but could find no way past Black Sticks shot-stopper Sally Rutherford, who produced a fine penalty corner save from Maartje Paumen in the most significant effort of the opening period.

Netherlands shot-stopper Joyce Sombroek was called into action early in the second half with a double save before the opening goal arrived in the 41st minute. In form attacker Lidewij Welten produced a fine turn and shot from close range following excellent build up play from pacey forward Rosalin Drost.

Minutes later, Maria Verschoor almost doubled the Dutch advantage when she rattled the crossbar a brilliant reverse stick effort, with Maartje Paumen also going close with a fierce strike from the right of the circle.

Although the Netherlands were creating the better goal-scoring opportunities, New Zealand gave as good as they got in the second half and threw everything at their illustrious opponents in the final stages of the game in an effort to get back into the match. However, the Dutch defence held firm to keep alive their dream of becoming the inaugural winners of the Hockey World League.

For Netherlands player Caia van Maasakker, the win was a fine way to mark her 50th international match.
