Boon's shootout is saved so Belgium go behind by 2…Posted July 1, 2015

Host nation Belgium suffered an agonising shoot-out defeat in their quarter-final meeting with Korea, who scored a last minute equaliser before breaking Belgian hearts in a dramatic final match of the day at the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals.

Fans of the Red Panthers once again turned out in their thousands in the hope of watching the home favourites claim a victory that would seal a place in the Hockey World League Final and move a step closer to a guaranteed ticket to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. However, it was not meant to be.

An early penalty stroke from Park Mihyun gave Korea a lead that they held up until the third quarter before goals from Louise Versavel and Manon Simons put Belgium within touching distance of a place in the final four. With three minutes remaining, Korea threw caution to the wind and replaced their goalkeeper with an outfield player, hoping that the extra outfield player would help them get the goal that would keep alive their own hopes of qualifying for the prestigious HWL Final at the end of the year. It was a tactic that paid off brilliantly, with a long pass from defence picking out Park Mihyun who caused havoc in the Belgian circle before Cheon Eunbi slammed home with just 35 seconds remaining.

It proved to be a killer blow for Belgium, who went from ecstasy to despair in a matter of minutes as Korea’s Jang Soo Ji gave a masterclass in goalkeeping to keep a clean-sheet in the shoot-out to send her team through to the HWL Finals.

“We made a little fault, but it can happen, that is sport”, said a disappointed Stephanie de Groof after the game. “We knew that the match is only finished after the last second and maybe we were already too early in Rio, so for now it is a disappointment. We have two days to rest and focus on our next game because we still have a ticket to win.”

De Groof’s final sentence was telling, as although her team have missed the chance to qualify for the HWL Final, a fifth or sixth place finish here in Antwerp would keep alive their chances of achieving Olympic qualification after the completion of the Continental Championships.
