QF1 GBR v RSA Goal 2 for GBRPosted June 18, 2015

Early goals from Alex Danson and Kate Richardson-Walsh saw Great Britain through to the final four in Valencia, qualifying for the Hockey World League final and moving a considerable step closer to the Olympic Games in the process.

Danson and Hannah MacLeod served notice of Great Britain’s intent in the opening minutes, drawing a fine double-save from Sanani Mangisa. And Danson was the one to break the deadlock 12 minutes in as she picked up Emily Maguire’s booming pass.

The striker had her back to goal but spun out of heavy traffic and slapped in a great goal for 1-0. A couple of minutes later, Richardson-Walsh’s swept corner shot took a big deflection off Bernadette Coston – running out number one – to spectacularly bounce off the underside of the bar and in to make it 2-0.

South Africa fought back, winning a couple of penalty corners before half-time with Liné Malan going the closest.

The second half saw Great Britain under some pressure but they always had a strong buffer in their favour. Susannah Townsend’s shot looped on to the roof of the net while Danson continued to cause problems. At the far end, Dirkie Chamberlain’s snap-shot went close while Illse Davids’ driving runs were dangerous but no further goals accrued.
