Alan Sothern scored a hat-trick as Ireland’s Green Machine secured their place in the quarter-final phase of the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals with an high quality Pool B victory over China in the first match of Day 6 in Antwerp.

Sothern hit a quick-fire double in the 19th minute before completing his hat-trick three minutes after half time, with Peter Caruth, Ronan Gormley and Stephen Dowds also in target for the Europeans.

The result moved the Irishmen onto four points, with China’s defeat meaning that they are now certain to feature in the 9-10 Classification match.

Although Ireland’s place in the cross-over quarter-finals is now secure, they will now switch their attentions to their final Pool B match against host nation Belgium, which takes place on Sunday. The result of that contest could prove to be crucial as to where Ireland finish in the Pool standings, which in turn will make a difference as to who they will face in the quarter-finals.

“The guys settled down and dominated some phases nicely”, said a satisfied Ireland Head Coach Craig Fulton after the game. “We know they like to play a high sweeper and going man for man at the back. It means they try and intercept high up the pitch so we had to be a bit more and patient and then try and move them about and it worked.”

Ireland goalkeeper David Harte, who was injured in an on-field collision and received treatment before being taken to hospital for assessment as a precautionary measure, has been released and is making a recovery.
