The Irish Women’s hockey team beat Russia (3 – 2) to finish 5th overall in the Euro Hockey Tournament in Antwerp.
Speaking after the match, Head Coach Sean Dancer said,
“We always knew it was going to be a tough game and Russia are a good team; they certainly have some good players,” Dancer said.
“Last game of the tournament is always nice and tough. In the end, there I things we can do better, especially in the attacking circle and today we only forced one penalty corner so we probably weren’t as smart as we’ve been in the last few games, but real credit to the girls they kept fighting and were able to get the win 3 – 2,” said Dancer.
