Bronze for hockey men
- Updated: December 4, 2011
A fired-up South Africa men’s hockey team upset world number eight Argentina 3-1 after leading 2-1 at half-time to win the bronze medal match at the Champions Challenge tournament at Randburg Hockey Stadium on Sunday.
ÔÇ¿ÔÇ¿South Africa had gone down 4-2 to India in the semi-finals on Saturday, failing to reach the final which would have seen them qualify for next year’s Olympics in London.
The men now have to win a tournament in Japan early next year to ensure the participation in London.
Currently ranked 13th in the world South Africa secured their bronze via a trademark penalty corner by top tournament scorer Justin Reid-Ross of Northern Blues plus action goals from Taine Paton of KZN Raiders and Western Province’s Lloyd Norris-Jones.
SA dominated the match and deserved to win by more, although that could also be said of their semi-final defeat to India.
