Netherlands and South Korea through to the 2011 final of the Rabo FIH Women’s Champions Trophy
The Dutch women not only defeated South Korea by 2-0 in the last match of Pool C at the 2011 Rabo FIH Women’s Champions Trophy being played at the Wagner Stadium in Amstelveen, the part of metropolitan area of Amsterdam, the capital city of Netherlands,
but also qualified for the final, along with South Korea, which will be played on Sunday, July 3 at the same site.
The Dutch team have now qualified for the 2011 Champions Trophy final for a record 9th time, whereas the Koreans are through to the grand finale for the second time and for the first time since 1995 Champions Trophy final, where they were defeated
by Australia’s Hockeyroos.
The game was a pretty competitive contest as both the opponents exhibited some fine class hockey throughout the match, but it was Netherlands which found a very early lead in the first half and doubled it in the later part of the first 35 minutes, whereas
the Koreans remained goal-less in both of the halves in spite of some wonderful efforts. They remained quite unlucky on a number of occasions.
The Dutch outfits started the game perfectly as they scored their opening goal of the match, within a minute into the first half, when Kim Lammers pleased the Dutch supporters by making a wonderful strike into the Koreans' net. The goal was her 17th
in the Champions Trophy encounters and now she needs only two goals to edge past the 18 goals record of a Dutch player which is now held by Maartje Paumen. Netherland scored their second goal minutes before the interval and this time Carlijn Welten made the
strike for the Dutch women.
Although there were some splendid efforts by both the teams and especially by the Koreans, yet the second half remained goal-less and no further goal was scored in the match after that. The match concluded at 2-0 to Netherlands.
Earlier in the first match of the day, Argentina’s Las Leonas scored a narrow victory over the Black Sticks Women by 3-2 and thus both the teams will be in front of each other in bronze medal game on Sunday, July 3.
