Marsha Marescia’s national women’s hockey side were hit for six of the worst in London on Sunday as they went down 6-2 to Germany, writes Mark Etheridge.
The occasion was the bronze-medal play-off of the Investec London Cup played at Chiswick.
Both sides have qualified for the Olympics later this year and the world’s third ranked side would have taken lots out of their clash against the South Africans.
The Germans led 2-1 at halftime and powered on in the second half to knock another four goals past the South Africans, who to be fair, had their chances and could well have made the scoreline a lot more respectable.
Dirkie Chamberlain, with a first-half effort, and Pietie Coetzee, late in the game,┬á scored South Africa’s two goals.
