Match Review NZL - IND 5-0

New Zealand’s Black Sticks claimed their second win in two matches by defeating India’s Eves 5-0 in the only women’s Pool B match to be played on Day 3 of the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals. The result puts New Zealand onto six points, giving them plenty of confidence ahead of their Oceania derby showdown with Pool B rivals Australia on Thursday (25 June).

As in their first game, the Black Sticks were in irresistible form, with Gemma Flynn giving her side the lead with an audacious overhead smash in the first period before Olivia Merry doubled the lead in the second. Flynn grabbed her second goal of the game and sixth of the competition shortly after the break ahead of a quick-fire double from Kirsten Pearce.

“It was another good performance by the girls and good to get another three points”, said New Zealand captain Anita Punt after the game. “We have Australia next so that will be fun, but we have been trying not to think about that one up until this point as we needed to focus on the earlier matches.”

After two matches, India remain without either a point or a goal in the competition.
