Nepal thrash Afghanistan 4-0 to finish third in FIH Hockey Series

LAHORE   -   Nepal thrashed Afghanistan 4-0 to finish third in the Haier FIH Hockey Series here at the National Hockey Stadium on Friday.

Nepal and Afghanistan, the two bottom teams of the series, had lost their previous two matches so it was the battle for the third position on a cold and dump day. Since, Nepal enjoyed a better goal difference, even a draw was enough for them to finish third. Pakistan’s hockey great Dr Tariq Aziz, captain of the 1968 Olympic gold medal winning team, was the chief guest on the occasion.

Nepal came out off the blocks quickly and went ahead within the three minutes. Their dangerous forward Roman Rana scored with a reverse flat push from the top of the circle. The Nepalese remained the better side for most of the time and scored a goal in all the four quarters. Second and third goals came off penalty corners. Sagar Acharya flicked high into the net each time.

Afghanistan had their best spell in the last quarter when they desperately searched for a goal. Three of their four penalty corners were earned during this period. With Afghan players moving up in number, gaps appeared in the defence and Nepal took benefit by sending long balls into the circle. One of which resulted in the fourth goal. Rajendra Karki, unmarked at the circle, received a good pass. He beat the advancing goal keeper before pushing it in the empty goal.

The second fixture of the day, which was the friendly match, Pakistan President XI outclassed Kazakhstan 8-1. Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) CEO Tayyab Ikram was the chief guest. The hosts began in a stormy fashion. The nimble footed forward Zaheer netted twice in the first seven minutes. Three more goals were added in the first quarter. So they were 5-0 up after first 15 minutes.

However in the latter quarters, the President XI could add only three, one in each. There was a lot of missing. The team management gave chance to the reserves as well. Seven goals came via open play with one off a penalty corner. Kazakhastan managed one in the second quarter when unmarked Aman Yelubayev standing unmarked at the top of the circle caressed a long ball on to the board. It was President XI’s third win in as many matches.

Today (Saturday), Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan meet in the last fixture of the event (final). Both have won their earlier two matches and are equal on points but Uzbekistan have a better goal difference. Before this game, Pakistan President XI will play their last friendly match, against Afghanistan.

Canada finishes 2018 with series win over Spain

Canada secures two wins and two draws with the world number 7 to cap off a successful 2018

Since their historic fifth-place finish at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Canadian Women’s National Team has continued to drive forward, playing over 25 international games, many of which against top European teams. Their fall training block in Belgium culminated with a four-game series win over 7th world-ranked Spain featuring two wins and two draws.

The team played against the experienced Spanish side in July prior to Spain’s bronze medal run at the Women’s Hockey World Cup and according to Canadian Head Coach Giles Bonnet, Team Canada had made noticeable improvements since the summer.

“Our performance and process goals were far better,” he said. “Our statistics also improved in both offensive plays and defensive moments. This was good to see and nice for the players to be able to reward themselves in this way.”

Rachel Donohoe and Brienne Stairs both notches two goals in the series win over Spain. Stairs reached the incredible 150 cap-milestone in the second game of the series, making her only the ninth player to do so. Donohoe, who went down injured in the Commonwealth Games has been playing on Gantoise this fall in the Belgian Hockey League. She said the training in the competitive European environment showed, because they were ready to compete against a top-10 team like Spain.

“The 10-week training block, with a specific technical focus, was visible on the pitch in Spain,” she said. “This evident increase in technical ability and team awareness, reassured us and gives us confidence going forward.”

Captain Kate Wright played her record setting 169th cap last year at the Pan American Cup, making her the most capped woman in Canadian history. She continues to add to her incredible total by reaching the 200-mark last week in Spain. For her, the cap total is special but it’s the program and her teammates that continue to drive her.

“I am honoured and humbled to be the first woman in Canadian hockey history to reach 200 caps. It has been quite the journey to get to this milestone,” she said. “My teammates inspire me and push me every day to be the best player that I can be. It is an exiting time for the Women’s National Team as many players are reaching major milestones. It shows we are growing and gaining experience together.”

She said the team is using the momentum from the Spain tour and the successful 2018 results to vault them into 2019.

“We need to keep fighting for the result in every moment of every game. We have been training hard and have left Canada to play abroad to make sure we are doing everything in our power to be prepared for qualification,” Wright said. “We are finally getting a taste of what it is like to get on the scoreboard and to win. We need to keep this momentum going into 2019 where it really counts.”

The message was clear from the Women’s National Team. The Spain series win was not as much of an end to 2018 as it was a beginning to 2019 and the great things to come from this program.

New Champions on podium augurs well for hockey

Belgium, by lifting the World Cup in Bhubaneswar on Sunday, suggested that winds of change have begun to sweep world hockey’s top podium.

Coming after Argentina’s triumph at the 2016 Rio Olympics, Belgium’s success has meant consecutive major global tournaments have produced first-time winners.

A whiff of fresh air for the sport at large.

The Red Lions clinched their first ever major global title (Olympics or World Cup) at the Kalinga Stadium beating the Netherlands in a shootout.

Belgium became only the sixth nation to inscribe their name on the magnificent trophy after edging past the Netherlands in a shootout at the Kalinga Stadium.

Belgium could have earned the distinction at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Argentina, however, had ambitions of their own and beat the Red Lions 4-2 in the final to become the ninth nation to win an Olympic men’s gold medal.

Argentina’s triumph broke a 32-year wait for a new name to emerge on hockey’s top podium after Australia won the 1986 World Cup in Willesden, England.

In the 1970s, times were a changing. Hockey as well.

The rules were being tweaked to increase the flow and raise spectator appeal, playing methods and formations were being overhauled and the playing surface itself was in the process of being changed from grass to plastic. It augured well for the sport.

(West) Germany brought the 44-year-old India-Pakistan hegemony to an end when they won the 1972 Munich Olympic gold. Pakistan were the beaten finalists with the only goal deciding it.

The Netherlands followed suit at the World Cup next year. The Dutch beat India in a shootout to win the 1973 World Cup – their first major title ever.

Then, New Zealand, on an artificial surface first used at an FIH global major, turned the hockey world upside down to clinch the 1976 Montreal Olympic gold with a 1-0 win over neighbours Australia.

Germans on the Munich victory podium

It took 10 years for a new name to emerge on either the World Cup or Olympic podium. And it came in the form of Australia, who at long last won their first global major title by lifting the World Cup at Willesden, England. Long knocking on the doors, the Aussies beat the hosts and bitter rivals 2-1 in the final.

Great Britain won the 1988 Seoul Olympic gold medal with a 3-1 win over (West) Germany. A refreshment in many ways, but in the early days of Olympic hockey, England and Great Britain won the 1908 and 1920 titles respectively. Technically, it wasn’t a new nation to win an Olympic title.

Then, after a wait of over three decades came the Argentinean epic and like the Bristol double-decker buses, another followed quickly when Belgium roared to victory in Bhubaneswar.

Curiously, The Red Lions triumph came a little over three months after a new force emerged in Asia. Japan clinched the gold medal after a dramatic victory over Malaysia in the Asian Games final in Jakarta, Indonesia, via the shootout.

That came a good 32 years after South Korea ended a two-horse race between India and Pakistan by winning the 1988 Seoul Asiad. A 2-1 win over Pakistan in the final brought the Koreans the honour.

Ghana reach ACCC 2018 finals in Abuja

GRA men team

It was all joy for Ghana Revenue Authority(GRA) men’s team who booked their place in the finals of the ongoing 2018 Hockey African Cup for Clubs Championship in Abuja.

The Ghanaian side defeated their Egyptian counterparts Eastern Company to book their place in the final.

Their female counterparts have also qualified for the women’s final following a slender 1-0 victory over Telkom in their matchday five fixture.

The defending champions who had not been impressive in their opening three games looked to have regained confidence after their match against Delta which they won 7-0.

The men’s team will be facing reigning champions El Sharkia from Egypt in the final battle for the First or second place.

The GRA women will, on the other hand, be taking on Kenyan side Telkom again for the cup.

Other Ghanaian teams Exchequers from the bank of Ghana and Ghana police female teams will also be playing for the bronze medals.

Varsity students eager to appear in the podium

USIU outshine Kada Queens to record maiden Africa win. With the win, Spartans finished fourth on the standings and will battle for third place tomorrow.

By Elizabeth Mburugu

After a series of failed attempts, United States International University of Africa (USIU-A) Spartans registered their maiden continental victory.

Yesterday, the Kenyan girls beat hosts Kada Queens 2-1 to chalk up their first win in the ongoing hockey Africa Cup of Club Championships at Abuja National Stadium, Nigeria. The win saw them finish fourth on the standings and increased their chances of a podium finish on their debut to the annual event.

An elated USIU-A captain Grace Akumu said the win boosts their morale and confidence ahead of their bronze medal clash.

“We tried very hard to win but fell short because our opponents we’re more experienced than us. We finally won and the victory revived our fighting spirits and we are determined more than ever before to return home with a medal,” Akumu said.

She said they were ready to take on either of the Ghanaian sides that will finish third on the standings.

Spartans began their campaign with a 1-1 draw against Delta Queens of Nigeria. However, they failed to keep up the momentum losing 4-0 to compatriots Telkom.

They were unable to match defending champions Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) going down 1-0 before succumbing to a 1-3 loss to Ghana Police.

Bounce back

Not ready to fall for the fourth time in a row, they bounced back to humble Nigerian big shots Kada Queens 2-1. Spartans put up a spirited fight to rally a goal down and secure their first maximum points.

Benedicta Johnson put the home girls ahead in the 27th to give them a 1-0 lead at half-time. Harriette Ominde levelled the score for the students in the 37th minute before Rhoda Kuira netted the winner five minutes later. In the men’s contest, 23-time winners Sharkia of Egypt continued with their winning ways beating  Ghana’s Exchequers 7-5 in their last preliminary match.

They are on top of the log with 13 points and are likely to play their Egyptian rivals and former holders Eastern Company who are second on the standings in the final.

Tough call for Telkom as they battle arch rivals

By Elizabeth Mburugu

It will be a Kenya and Ghana affair in the women’s final and third place play-off.

With nine continental titles, it goes without saying that Telkom is Africa’s most decorated women’s hockey club.

However, the Kenyan girls who had ruled Africa since 2012 were dethroned early this year by Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) ending their five-year reign at the helm of continental club hockey. Today, Telkom will be out to reclaim their title when they face off with familiar foes GRA in the final of the 2018 Africa Cup of Club Championships (ACCC) at Abuja National Stadium, Nigeria.

Telkom need to be at their best to overcome the Ghanaians. On Thursday evening, GRA edged out the Kenyans 1-0 in their last preliminary match ending their unbeaten run in the continental challenge. This was the second time that Telkom had lost to GRA who they had dominated in past events having lost by the same margin in the 2017 final in Accra, Ghana.

Despite the defeat, Telkom coach Jos Openda remained confident saying he was not worried and looks forward to better performance in finals. “We lost but I’m not worried because I would rather lose in the preliminary than fail to rise to the occasion when it matters. And that's in the finals.

“We made many mistakes and our defence was wanting which led to the loss. All is not lost because the final match is crucial and I assure Kenyans that if the players stick to our game plan, we will carry the day,” he said.

Kenya will have a chance to secure bronze when United States International University of Africa (USIU-A) Spartans tackle Ghana Police in a third-place tie. The Spartans hope to avenge their 3-1 loss to the Ghanaian law enforcers in the preliminary match.

Kenya’s representatives at this year’s Africa Hockey Club championships Telkom Kenya and USIU Spartans are in action on Saturday in the final and third-place play-off matches as the tournament comes to an end in Abuja, Nigeria.

Nine-time champions Telkom lost for the first time at the tournament on Thursday going down by a solitary goal to defending champions Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) in their last match of the round robin format.

Nonetheless, they finished top of the table standings on 12 points and will take on GRA who finished second on 11 points in the gold medal match.

“I am glad we lost to GRA in the preliminaries, at least we can correct our mistakes for the final. The chances we lost and the mistakes our defenders made were the misgivings we had in this match. All the same, I am not too worried because we are already in the final,” noted Telkom coach Jos Openda. “In the last championship I lost in the final which was a crucial game. We are going to see how we are going to seal everything we can work on for the final.”

Coach Openda is seeking his sixth title at the helm of Telkom and will be banking on forwards Jackline Mwangi and Audrey Omaido who top the goal scorers chart with four goals each. The duo will be hoping to improve their goals tally as they battle for the top scorer gong.

USIU Spartans face Ghana Police in the battle for bronze after finishing fourth on four points. Ghana Police finished third on 10 points. The students will be hoping to build up from their first win of the tournament, a 2-1 win over Kada Queens of Nigeria.

“Finally the forwards were able to score and get a victory for the team when needed, so hopefully they will take that and all the positives to the bronze medal game,” said USIU Spartans team manager John Kabu.

“Of course the experience will be invaluable to the players and it being a growing team, we hope to replicate the good show back in the national league and even when we come back to the continental scene,” he added.

Ghana Revenue Authority men’s team will play defending champions Egyptians El Sharkia for the men’s title while Eastern Company from Egypt play Exchequers from Ghana for the bronze medal in the third place playoff.

USWNT Athlete Ashley Hoffman Named Honda Sport Award Winner

Photo courtesy of UNC Athletics.

Ashley Hoffman, a senior defender from the University of North Carolina, was named the Honda Sport Award winner for Field Hockey as announced today by Chris Voelz, Executive Director of THE Collegiate Women Sports Awards (CWSA).

The Honda Sport Award has been presented annually by the CWSA for the past 43 years to the top women athletes in 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports and signifies "the best of the best in collegiate athletics".  With this honor, Hoffman becomes a finalist for the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year and the prestigious Class of 2019 Honda Cup which will be presented on a live telecast on CBS Sports Network on June 24, 2019, in downtown Los Angeles.

Hoffman was chosen by a vote of administrators from over 1,000 NCAA member schools. Finalists included Paula Portugal (Miami University), Anna Willocks (Saint Joseph's University) and Elise Wong (Princeton University).

"I was so excited to hear I'd won, and it was awesome to get the news from Coach Shelton, since she's a past winner of the award," stated Hoffman. "I could not have won this award without her support, and the support of the entire staff and my team."

"One of the things I focused on at Carolina was community outreach, so to have this award recognize what I've done both on and off the field means a lot to me. It's validation that I became the best player and best person I could be at this university."

Hoffman, hailing from Mohnton, Pennsylvania, led the Tar Heels to the 2018 NCAA Championship title and earned NCAA Championship MVP honors. A starter in all 96 games during her career, she was twice named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and is a two-time Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) first-team All-American. During her four years at UNC, she had an 82-14 record winning an NCAA title, three ACC titles and making the final four each year.

As center back, she led a UNC defense that gave up just 16 goals in 23 games and never more than two to any team, including a 2-0 shutout of Maryland in the NCAA final. She was also a leader on the nation's highest scoring offense, ranking second on the team in goals with 16 and in points with 39, both career highs.

She is one of just three current collegiate players who are also members of the U.S. National Team and is graduating in December with a degree in sociology. Off the field, she is a two-time All-ACC Academic Team honoree and is active in community outreach, both with the team and on her own, and with UNC's Leadership Academy.

"It's been a pleasure to watch the way Ashley has represented UNC during her career and especially as a senior, when she led the team to an undefeated season," said UNC Athletics Director Bubba Cunningham. "She's undoubtedly one of the top players in the history of an exceptional program. She's also a great example of a student who has excelled in all areas, and she's someone we're very proud to call a Tar Heel."

"I could not be more thrilled for Ashley," stated UNC head coach Karen Shelton. "This is our sport's most prestigious honor and it recognizes the fact that she was clearly the best player in the nation this season. She excelled on offense and defense and led us so well. She was the best player on the best team in the country."

"This award also recognizes the fact that she excelled academically and in community outreach during her four years. She's had an outstanding all-around career here – great player, great leader, great teammate, great student. She has made us all so proud and will go down in program history as one of our all-time best."

Honda Sport Award winners will be presented with the honor during on-campus presentations throughout the year.

The CWSA, in its 43rd year, honors the nation's top NCAA women athletes recognizing superior athletic skills, leadership, academic excellence and eagerness to participate in community service.  Since commencing its sponsorship in 1986, Honda has provided more than $3.1 million in institutional grants to the universities of the award winners and nominees to support women's athletics programs at the institutions.
