Ireland 1 - 2 (0 - 1)


The crowd at the Hockey Stadium Wisma Belia saw an intense match between Ireland and Poland with chances created by either side. Poland got the better end of it, winning 2-1 thanks to a late Pawel Bratkowski strike.

The first goal in this tough encounter came on the quarter-break as Poland scored from a penalty corner. Bratkowski’s shot was deflected into the net by Krystian Makowski (18’) leaving the Irish goalie David Harte no chance. The second quarter saw both sides winning a penalty corner but both failed to convert.

However, the Green Machine evened the game at 1-1 on 37 minutes when Maurice Elliott (37’) picked up the rebound of a shot and found the bottom of the goal.

Ireland were the stronger side throughout the third quarter but failed to capitalise. The last quarter was a very close affair as both teams defended well and limited each other to very few chances. But Bratkowski eventually scored the winner for Poland when his penalty corner shot found its way past the Irish keeper.
