RSA V IRE Match HighlightsPosted June 10, 2015

Nikki Evans’ hat trick inspired Ireland to an opening game 4-1 win over South Africa, starting their Hockey World League semi-final in style in Valencia.
Evans took just five minutes to break the deadlock, ghosting to the right of the circle to clip home the opening effort.

Kelly Madsen levelled soon after with a deflection at the top of the circle but Ireland were back in front on 18 minutes via another Evans touch, this time from a deflection at penalty corner time.

South Africa had their chances to level in the third quarter but could not convert a pair of corners, won by the ingenuity of Dirkie Chamberlain. Ireland, meanwhile, took their chances with Evans diving onto the end of Chloe Watkins’ powerful cross in the 50th minute for 3-1.

Nicci Daly then completed the result with a spectacular solo goal, lifting the ball into the circle and cracking home on the volley.
