South Africa


A dominant England side showed up to the pitch against South Africa for the final pool D clash of the 2013 Hero Hockey Junior World Cup. England put on a showcase of skill array, owning the midfield and generating several opportunities in the early get-going.

In the 5th minute of play a hard hit into the circle took a nifty deflection by Arjan Drayton-Chana past South African keeper Richard Curtis. The ball slowed towards the goal line but David Goodfield was there to finish and give England the 1-0 lead.

England continued to dominate in possession but a feisty and resilient South African side were rewarded with an equalizer through Andrew Manson. Manson batted home a rebound off England keeper Harry Gibson in the 34th minute to keep the game tied at one entering half time.

In the second frame the high tempo and physicality between both teams picked up allowing for opportunities in both ends of the pitch. South Africa weathered off a storm of England attack and earned a penalty corner in the 59th minute. The resulting drag flick was fired low and then deflected up and in off the reverse stick of the South African captain Dylan Swanpoel. The final score remained 2-1 in favour of South Africa, who now join Malaysia at the top of pool D.
