The Black Sticks Women have romped to a 4-0 win against Korea tonight in the semi-final of the Hawke’s Bay Cup in Hastings.
It was a commanding performance from the Kiwis and coach Mark Hager says he hopes it can be repeated in tomorrow’s final against Australia.
“I think it’s the best we have played since the London Olympics as a collective unit for the four quarters. From Georgia Barnett in goal right through to the strikers, it was a good effort from all the girls,” said Hager.
Olivia Merry, Gemma Flynn and Petrea Webster were the goal scorers tonight, but it was truly a team effort with some great defence that kept Korea scoreless.
“It was good to see that our strikers were so clinical in front of goal and put their chances away. I think the energy was there tonight and that helped us up front.”
It was a dream start for the Kiwis getting two goals on the scoreboard by the 12th minute, with Merry and then Flynn scoring in swift succession. After a period of sustained pressure, New Zealand were rewarded when Flynn passed to Merry who was perfectly positioned on the post to tap it in. A minute later, Flynn was in a similar position in front of the goal receiving a terrific cross from recent recruit Kirsten Pearce who knocked it over the line.
After the half time break, the Kiwis were awarded their fourth penalty corner of the game and North Harbour’s Petrea Webster stretched her team’s lead to 3-0 thanks to a successful variation.
The fourth goal came in the 50th minute, and it was textbook hockey from the Black Sticks. Anita Punt turned the ball over in Korea’s half, ran the ball into the circle, passed to Flynn who swiftly crossed it to Webster waiting on the line.
Earlier in the day, USA beat India 3-0 with two goals from Katie O’Donnell and one from Kathleen Sharkey. The Americans will now face Argentina in the 5th/6th play-off tomorrow after narrowly winning 3-2 against Japan. India will play Japan tomorrow to decide the 7th/8th position. China are set to play Korea for the Bronze medal while the Black Sticks will face Australia in the final tomorrow.

India eves take on United States in playoff
HASTINGS (New Zealand): The Indian women's hockey team will look to turn the tables when they take on the United States in a 5-8 position classification playoff in the Hawke's Bay Cup here on Saturday.
The winning team will then proceed to the 5-6 position playoff while the loser will play the 7-8 spot match at the Hastings Sports Park on Sunday.
The United States had beaten India 4-2 during the pool phase but following that they delivered a brilliant performance to draw 0-0 against the mighty Australians.
However, in the quarterfinal, India were thrashed 1-4 by hosts New Zealand. The Asian team will look to get some steam back to at least fight for a respectable finishing position.
"We are trying to figure out the loopholes and get back in form for the upcoming match. It is very important to win against the US tomorrow to bring back the team's confidence for the future tournaments. We have been evaluating our previous matches and will ensure a much better performance," India captain Ritu Rani said on Friday.
Hockey India (HI) Director High Performance Roelant Oltmans is also optimistic about his team's chances.
"The team has been trying to give their best so far. However, it did not turn out well. But the hope to do better in the upcoming matches is still there and the players in our team are working to end it on a high. We hope to perform like a strong team tomorrow and emerge as winners," said the Dutchman.

Great Britain vs Japan: Ones to Watch
Susie Gilbert in action for Great Britain.
A little over a week until Japan come to town to face off against Great Britain’s women at The Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in the Investec Private Banking International. The Cherry Blossoms head to London as part of a rigorous preparation phase for the Olympic Qualifiers, as both sides continue to get ready for the upcoming World League competitions this June.
Japan, ranked just two places below Danny Kerry’s side in the world will come to England playing a very solid defensive style with the emphasis on quick counterattacking hockey. We highlight some of the players who are likely to play a key role for both sides in this clash.
Goalkeeper Sakiyo Asano, will go down in folklore in the UK after her incredible display at London 2012 kept China at bay to steer her side to a 1-0 win in the final pool game. The victory ultimately allowed Great Britain to progress to the semi-finals and the rest, as they say, is history. Asano is a formidable shot stopper who has acquitted herself superbly and carved her place out as a reliable No1.
Captain Miyuki Nakagawa comes with a growing reputation as the team’s playmaker. The midfielder leads by example and boasts excellent vision and awareness of where her teammates are, as well as the uncanny ability to find them with her outstanding range of passing.
Hazuki Nagai is one of the team’s main penalty corner threats. The 20-year-old has a good low drag flick in her arsenal but is also instrumental in setting up her teammates from some of the variations they choose to run on set pieces. Japan score the lion’s share of their goals from corners, so Nagai is not to be underestimated.
Maddie Hinch keeps an eye on the action in front of her
Goalkeeper Maddie Hinch has been impressive since she claimed the No1 shirt as her own in the wake of the London Olympics. Terrific agility, quickness, bravery, Hinch has the lot. A worthy adversary to any striker in game play or in shootout situations, she has over 50 international caps to her name and shows no signs of letting up just yet.
Emily Maguire is one of the ever growing Scottish contingent in the Great Britain squad. The elegant defender collected an Olympic bronze medal on this site in 2012 and brings her vision, passing ability, defensive toughness and her tenacity back to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as a key part of the GB defensive unit. If selected, the game against Japan will mark Maguire’s 150th international appearance.
Maguire’s club team mate Susie Gilbert has gone from strength to strength since making her debut back in 2008. Now approaching 150 international caps, Gilbert has carved herself a place as one of the key players in Danny Kerry’s side with her excellent skill on the ball, her seemingly limitless energy and her ability to link up with her teammates. Gilbert will be an attacking threat as she continues to impress.

Will Japan blossom or will the Panthers pounce?
Two of the rising stars of the game seek glory in Antwerp
Japan and Belgium are two of the women’s teams competing in Antwerp. Both the Cherry Blossoms, as Japan are known, and the Belgium Red Panthers are within touching distance of the ‘big guns’ but have yet to break into the top eight in the world.
The teams play very different styles of hockey: Japan is all about speed, quick counter attacks and stoic defending; Belgium play a game that relies on fast ball pace and maintaining a good structure. But when it comes to determination to improve their world ranking, the teams have an equally fierce desire.
Japan, who are ranked 10th in the world, first appeared on the global hockey stage in the World Cup in 1978. On that occasion the team finished sixth, which has been one of its highest placings in any major tournament. On the continental scene, the Cherry Blossoms are normally battling with China and Korea for the top spot, although in the most recent Hockey Asia Cup and Asian Hockey Champions Trophy – both in 2013 – Japan were victorious. The team was bitterly disappointed to finish fourth at the 2014 Asian Games, behind South Korea, China and India. Both Korea and India will also be in Antwerp.
The 12th-ranked Belgium team are playing catch up with the Belgium men’s team, which has made tremendous strides up the rankings in the past few seasons. Like Japan, the Red Panthers competed in the World Cup in the 1970s, with a fifth place finish in 1974 and a bronze medal in 1978. In the years between 1978 and 2012 however, the nation fell away in terms of hockey performance and it wasn’t until the team appeared at the 2012 Olympics that a new intent became apparent.
Just as Japan has to deal with the close rivalry of China and Korea, so Belgium has suffered from its proximity to the European hockey power houses of Germany and the Netherlands. Belgium’s aim is to be on equal terms with its European rivals. “In terms of being where we want to be, we are about eight years behind the men’s team,” said Pascal Kina, the coach who has been steering his young side over the past few seasons. But the Belgium Hockey Federation is backing its women’s team and the results are beginning to pay off, with Belgium finishing fourth in the EuroHockey Nations Championship in 2013, only missing out on a place in the finals when they were beaten on penalty shoot-out by Germany.
In preparation for the HWL Semi-Finals, Japan has been participating in the Hawkes Bay Eight Nation tournament in New Zealand, where coach Yugi Nagai outlined his plans to turn Japan into a side that plays with more aggression. “We are building muscle and core strength with weight training and hard, physical work,” he said. “I also want a team of players who can make decisions for themselves on the field.”
A key player for Japan will be Yukari Yamamoto, who retired after the London Olympics. The 33-year-old has been coaxed back to help Japan qualify for Rio 2016. “We have come here (to Hawkes Bay) to learn how to be aggressive,” she said.
If Japan are looking to experience, Kina has never been shy of using youth. At the 2014 Hockey World Cup he fielded the youngest player in the competition, Emma Puvrez, who was just 16, while at 19, Aisling D’Hooghe was the youngest goalkeeper.
However, when it comes to the aggression that Yamamoto is hoping her team will bring to Antwerp, there is one Belgium player who epitomises aggressive, attacking hockey and that is the penalty corner specialist and influential defender Stephanie De Groof. During Belgium’s recent six match series against South Africa, it was De Groof who was top scorer, rifling home goals into all areas of the net. And the Belgium fans will be hoping the 23-year-old, who recently celebrated 150 caps for the Red Panthers, is firing on all cylinders as she helps spearheads Belgium’s assault on the HWL Semi-Finals.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian national hockey team will play nine more matches to prepare for the World Hockey League Semi-finals in Belgium from June 20-July 5.
Coach Tai Beng Hai’s charges will first leave for a tour of Europe on April 29 to play seven matches – two each against Holland and Belgium, one against the Dutch Juniors and two others against club sides.
They will return on May 11 for a one-month training stint at home before leaving for Belgium to play two more tune-up matches against yet-to-be confirmed teams before the tournament kicks off.
Beng Hai said they have 25 players in the training squad but only 20 will be going for the trip to Europe.
“The team underwent a fitness test by the National Sports Institute (NSI) yesterday. The test will be done over two days. Our normal training session will resume on Monday.
“We will drop five players as we plan to take only 20 players to Europe. We will select the team for Europe by the end of next week,” said Beng Hai.
The coach admitted that the 18 players from the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup side will form the core of the team for the World Hockey League. Malaysia finished last in the six-nation meet which ended last weekend in Ipoh.
In Belgium, Malaysia are in Group B along with hosts Belgium, England, Ireland and China. Group A consists of world No. 1 Australia, India, Pakistan, France and Poland.
The top three finishers in Belgium will qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympics. Malaysia last qualified for the Olympics in 2000.

KARACHI: Four hat-tricks including one double by PIA’s Owais-ur-Rehman, stole the limelight in one-sided matches played on the second day of the 34th National Junior (under-20) Hockey Championship at the Hockey Club of Pakistan Stadium here on Friday.
Owais struck half-a-dozen goals as airlines taught a hockey lesson to Punjab ‘B’ while emerging victorious by 11-0 to open their pool ‘B’ account. He scored five of the six goals in a row in 18th (penalty corner), 20th, 21th (penalty stroke), 22nd, and 24th minutes before adding the sixth in 43rd minute to complete a rare feat of double hat-trick, first of the competition.

Scorpions target perfect start to new season

Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) league continues this weekend with 11 matches on the cards at City Park Stadium.
Last year’s runners up Strathmore Scorpions kick start their campaign against Daystar Falcons on Saturday hoping that this is the year that they finally break Telkom Orange’s dominance in the league.
Scorpions have played second fiddle to Orange in the last five years but are out to put a stop to the skid this season.
The varsity side have signed Kenyan internationals Pauline Naise from United States International University (USIU) and Margaret Rotich from rivals Orange in a bid to strengthen their squad.
Scorpions coach Meshack Senge has warned his team against underestimating their opponents, who were thrashed 7-0 USIU last weekend, urging them to get their season off to a good start.
“We want a good start so as to get the momentum for the season. The first match is very important and we will work hard to get the win,” Senge said.
“They (Falcons) lost last weekend but we will not think about that, this is another match and anything can happen.”
The tactician is relishing the chance to see his new signings take to the pitch today. Naise is expected to partner last season’s top scorer Gilly Okumu upfront with Rotich playing in midfield.
Falcons coach Moses Kagochi believes his team will need to improve on their concentration and discipline if they are to get anything from this match.
“We are hoping for a better game, they are good side who have played in the African Club Championship but we have belief that if we maintain our shape we can get a result out of this game,” Kagochi told Nation Sport on Friday.
In the men’s league, Kenya Police and Strathmore Gladiators will be looking to make it two wins in a row when they face Kenya College of Accountancy University and Parkroad.

Would like to invite Sonam Kapoor for dinner: Dharamvir
Harpreet Kaur Lamba
Dharamvir Singh has been the silent workhorse in the Indian hockey team ever since his debut in 2009. Shy and quiet, the hard-working midfielder prefers that his performance do the talking and brings plenty of energy and impetus to the squad.
Last week, the Ropar-based player achieved a personal milestone, completing his 100th international outing during the Azlan Shah hockey tournament in Malaysia, where India picked up bronze. In an year when India are lined up for crucial tournaments -- including the World League semi-finals in Belgium -- Dharamvir is keen to learn and improve under new coach Paul van Ass.
In an interaction, the 25-year-old talks about his favourite venues and why he would like to invite Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor for dinner, among other things.
Earliest sporting memory: My elder brother used to play hockey and I got hooked to the sport after seeing him play. He did not get enough opportunities to make his mark on the national stage, but that fuelled me to take up the sport. When I started training, India forward Rajpal Singh and goalkeeper Baljit Dadwal used to train at the Chandigarh Stadium regulary and that motivated me.
Soon, I was selected in the Under-18 team for a four-nation tournament in Singapore and hence, the journey began.
Most memorable sporting moment: The gold medal at the 2014 Asian Games at Incheon. It was a memorable day for all of us.
Worst sporting moment: I lost an entire year due to an ankle injury in 2011. It is the hardest time in a player’s career.
Sporting heroes: Baljeet Singh Dhillon, three times Olympian
Favourite venues: Spain and Istanbul, Turkey
Other sport you would pay the most to see: Football
Biggest regret: Life is a journey, good or bad I take it positively. One should enjoy the good and get wiser with bad experiences.
Who would you like to invite to dinner and why? Sonam Kapoor, because she reminds me of someone special!
Person you learnt most from: My parents and coaches Jasbir Singh Bajwa and O.P. Ahlawat
How will you like to be remembered? A good human being and a great hockey player
Hobbies: Travelling with friends, long drives with Punjabi music
What do you never leave home without? My phone and money because I love to shop
A habit you wish to get rid of: I am an introvert. I will like to change it and have been working on it.
Favourite actors: Vin Diesel, Sunny Deol, John Abraham, Sonam Kapoor
Funniest fan letter/proposal? I get many on my Facebook page.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I visualise myself playing hockey at the elite level as well sharing my knowledge and skills with youngsters. I am keen on opening an academy for budding players to learn the right skills at the right age.
One thing that frightens you the most: The thoughts of my loved ones of going away
What if not a hockey player? I cannot imagine my life without hockey. But if there was no choice, I would have joined the family business.

Could 25 teachers hold the key to hockey development in Tanzania?
One of the most powerful ways of spreading hockey knowledge at grass roots level is to upskill physical education teachers in the delivery of the basic skills. And that is exactly what one man did when he organised a coaching course for 25 teachers and coaches in southern Tanzania.
Frank Lusawa is a trainee physical education teacher at Lindi Secondary School in the east African country. He is studying PE and Sports Science at the University of Dar es Salaam - in the capital city of Tanzania. Last year, while at the university Frank played his first game of hockey and was so enraptured by the sport that he decided to throw himself into raising its profile and teaching in Lindi and the surrounding area.
Frank’s first steps into hockey involved introducing it to the students he was teaching as part of his university course. The University of Dar es Salaam provided sticks and within just a few months, Frank was running a school team, comprising 16 students from the Lindi Secondary School.
However, it was what Frank did next that is set to make a real difference to hockey development in the area. In February and March of this year, he organised a training workshop for primary and secondary school teachers in the Lindi district. All the people attending the course were physical education (PE) teachers or people with an interest in delivering PE to school children. In total 25 people representing six different schools took part.
The hockey coaching workshop was divided into three sections: one was theoretical, introducing hockey, its background and some videos demonstrating basic techniques; the other two sessions were practical, pitch-based sessions.
Frank’s inspiration for setting up and running such a course was based on his own experiences. In January this year, Frank has attended a hockey coaching course, which introduced would-be coaches to the basics of the game. The course, which took place during the First International Volunteer Camp, was run by Flavio Gallo and Francesco Richichi from Italy and Nick Isbouts from Holland. All three are top level hockey coaches, and they were helped by local coaches.
Seeing how structured the sessions were and realising the great value that such a course would offer physical education teachers, Frank approached two coaches– the Tanzania women’s coach Valentina Quaranta and Mnonda Magan –coach of the men’s team in Dar es Salaam –about the possibility of running a similar course in Lindi. Specialised training courses would give the PE teachers both a basic knowledge of the techniques and skills of hockey as well as the confidence to deliver the sport and develop it within their own schools.
“There really was no idea about hockey in the region before we ran the courses, but now it has become very popular among the students and people in the area,”says Frank. “By July, I expect to have more than 100 children playing the sport. I want to run primary school teams and secondary school teams and attract children to training.
Valentina Quaranta works for the government organisation CO.PE, which aims to educate and empower women. She has been the driving force behind hockey development in Tanzania, particularly among girls and women. She said: “I was so pleased to support the project. The aim of this seminar was to introduce to local P.E. teachers the basics of hockey: giving them the basic knowledge of skills and techniques so they can start to teach hockey in schools to children and teenagers. Doing so, the results will be that many students will start to play hockey in this district, which is a step forward for the development of hockey in Tanzania.”
