Match Review IND - POL 3-1

IND v POL HighlightsPosted June 24, 2015

A 3-1 win against Poland women saw India claim their first victory in Pool B at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals in Antwerp, Belgium.

India took the lead in the second quarter through a penalty corner as Rani squeezed a shot into the bottom left hand corner to go 1-0 up.

Rani doubled India’s lead later that quarter thanks to some skilled play. After breaking away from two Polish defenders in the circle, she rounded Polish goalkeeper Marta Kucharska and scored, allowing India to take a 2-0 lead going in to the half-time break.

Poland did pull a goal back however in the fourth quarter as Natalia Wisniewska’s pass took a deflection off an Indian defender to make the score 2-1.

India responded within minutes as Vandana Katariya denied teammate Rani a hat-trick as she deflected her shot into the goal to restore her team’s two goal lead, at 3-1, which proved to be the final score of the game.

After the game, India’s double goal scorer Rani said: “This game was very important for us because we need to qualify for the quarter-finals and we lost our first two matches. Today we won because the whole team did well. We played better than the first two matches where we conceded a lot of goals and didn’t play attacking hockey. Today we played attacking hockey and we worked very hard as a team.”

Following their loss, Poland captain Magdalena Zagajska said: “We made too many mistakes. Most of the time we didn’t control the game, our positions weren’t good enough, our concentration wasn’t good enough and our determination wasn’t good enough.”

Looking ahead to their next game against hosts Belgium, Zagajska added: “We have to keep fighting, keep believing and of course, play better. If we play the same as today we’re going to lose.”
