Green Army Undone By Defending European Champions

England started the tie playing very high up the pitch with only Maddie Hinch in their half, the tactic payed off with an early penalty corner and in the 5th minute the opening goal. Laura Unsworth charged along the baseline and her shot took an unlucky deflection off Shirley McCay to sneak past Grace O’Flanagan. The two sides quickly exchanged further penalty corners with Hinch saving Roisin Upton’s drag flick. Alex Danson was a constant attacking threat for the English as always and drew a phenomenal glove save from Grace O’Flanagan. The game continued at break-neck speed as Ireland began to grow into the encounter against the defending European Champions. Upton intercepted a loose ball and the slip to Anna O’Flanagan was perfectly weighted to allow her to find Katie Mullan in the circle but the English defence were on her before she could execute her reverse shot. Nicci Daly’s quick hands and skills were on display all day and she found Deidre Duke down the left side who fired a reverse across goal, just spinning past the diving Mullan on the cusp of half time.
