Match 24: QF3 New Zealand v Canada 7-8 SO (0-0)

Canada defeated New Zealand in a shoot-out drama with Adam Froese converting the 28th attempt to seal a 8-7 win. The Maples Leafs marched into the semi-finals at the Argentina Hockey Semi-Final in Buenos Aires and will now play the winner of the fourth quarter-final between host nation Argentina and Japan.  

The match was goalless after regulation time as both defences stood up to the challenge posed by their opponents. Canada earned the first penalty corner of the match after a Scott Tupper strike hit a Blacksticks’ foot. Gordon Johnston flicked low but his attempt was denied.

New Zealand also forced their first penalty corner in the first quarter but Andy Hayward’s dragflick was saved by the outstanding Canadian goalie David Carter.  Scoring opportunities were limited in the second quarter as much of the action took place in midfield.

The match remained tied until the end. New Zealand earned one penalty corner but Carter dived to save another Hayward flick. With both sides looking for a late goal, the Black Sticks probably had the better chances towards the end but could not break through the Canadian defence marshalled by captain Scott Tupper.

The shootout was heartbreaking as it has taken 14 rounds to find the winner. Adam Froese had eventually finished the drama. It is worth mentioning that both goalkeepers, Devon Manchester for the Blacksticks and Carter for the Maple Leafs, had an outstanding evening denying 7 and 8 attempts respectively.

Thoughts on the match

Adam Froese (CAN)
“Our goalkeeper Dave Carter kept us in the whole time. I can’t express how much credit I can give to him, he just played incredible tonight during the game and in the shoot-out. I can’t be more happy for these boys. It’s not about which goal went in, it’s a team effort. I’m so proud of these guys.”

Shea McAleese (NZL)
“No, I haven’t experienced a drama like this before and especially not for the biggest piece of pain, the Olympics. Canada played a good game and we didn’t play well enough. We should have won this game in normal time but unfortunately we didn’t.
