Komazawa’s Golden Goal gives Japan victory
5/8 – KOR 3-4 (AET) JPN

Despite high temperatures, both teams started off this match at great pace knowing that victory would lift them into Sunday’s 5th place play off. It took Japan less than two minutes until they penetrated the circle for the first time, with their attack leading to a penalty corner which was converted by Rika Komazawa (3’). Japanese goalkeeper Sakiyo Asano was soon called into action when she saved Korean Lee Seon-Ok’s penalty corner drag-flick before clearing a follow-up effort. However, Korea equalized when Han Hye-Lyoung (31’) scored her first ever Champions Trophy goal. 

Just before half-time Korea took the lead after team-captain Lee Seon-Ok (34’) scored from a penalty stroke. The stroke was awarded due to an aggressive stick-tackle in the circle. Japan decided to refer to the video umpire but the original decision stood. It was the first time in the tournament that Korea had secured a half-time lead. Japan struck back in the second half when Akane Shibata (53’) managed to lift the ball into the net after Korean goalkeeper Moon Young-Hui saved a flick with her glove.

The next goal in this match came from a penalty corner. Lee Seon-Ok (64’)’s drag-flick went into the top corner of the goal and gave Korea a 3-2 advantage. Japan fought back again when Rika Komazawa (68’) tied the scores at 3-3. Korea were unhappy with the decision and used their team referral to ask whether there had been a five metre distance from a side-line-hit just before the ball was played into the circle. The video umpire confirmed that the match umpire’s decision to award the goal was correct. Towards the end of the match, Korea found themselves reduced to nine players when Cheon Eun-Bi and Hong Ji-Seon were both shown yellow cards less than 60 seconds apart.

The winning goal arrived in the second half of the extra-time, and again it was Komazawa who was the scorer. The Golden Goal - her third score of the game - gave Japan victory and also their first ever triumph over Korea in Champions Trophy hockey. The match winning strike was confirmed after umpire Wendy Stewart referred the decision to the video umpire to be absolutely sure that it was correct.
