JWC: Round-up – South Africa Frenzied After Reaching Quarter-finals

On the day that the Netherlands was on the field for two and a half hours and set a record score of 18-0 against Zimbabwe, it was also a party for South Africa and the United States. We will also see these teams in the quarterfinals.

South Africa – Ireland 1-0

’30 1-0 Du Toit (sc)
This was a day to remember for the audience in Potchefstroom. In a direct duel for a quarter-final spot, the home team, with five players from the local university, narrowly won. The hostesses got ten corners. A hard, striking slide shot from Jean-Leigh du Toit turned out to be enough for the win against Ireland. It led to ecstatic joy on the field and in the stands. The match winner was so taken aback that she forgot to take off her mouthguard afterwards, live on television. An interview with a bit of inside. Historical footage of a memorable hockey day.

Canada – United States 0-4

‘8 0-1 Donnelly
’42 0-2 Ramsey (sc)
’51 0-3 Rose
’54 0-4 De Vries (sc)
The direct duel for a place in the last four between the North American neighborhoods, two quarters was exciting. Then America withdrew. Within twelve minutes the counter went up from 0-1 to 0-4. Team USA therefore moves to the last eight behind the Orange squad as number two in group A. In the quarterfinals, the Americans face England, the group winner of group B. For Canada and Zimbabwe, place nine is still the highest achievable.

Quarter-finals:

South Africa – Netherlands
United States – England
2C – 1D
2D – 1C
