World League semi-finals: England 1 USA 1: USA won the shoot-out

Hannah Martin was on target for a second game running, but it proved in vain as the USA defeated England in a dramatic penalty shoot-out in the Hockey World League semi-finals.

Captain Melissa Gonzalez netted the winning penalty despite Maddie Hinch’s best efforts, the England stopper making four stops in the shoot-out itself.

Former Ipswich School pupil, Martin, had given England the lead in normal time, a lead that they kept until the closing minutes.

But Jill Witmer levelled to send the game to the shoot-out – the USA will now play Germany in the final.

Reflecting on the match, coach David Ralph said: “We are disappointed with the result tonight. It was an intense, tight game that unfortunately didn’t go our way.

“This is a great group though and we will regroup and look forward to playing Argentina on Sunday.”
