GB women's hockey in to bronze play-off

9th August 2012

Team GB's women's hockey team are through to the bronze play-off after losing their match to Argentina.

The current reigning world champions played strongly against the British squad and won 2-1 and will now play the Netherlands on Friday date to decide who will take home the gold.

"I thought we were the dominant side in the second half," said GB coach Danny Kerry.

"The reason for not winning was the half-chances, not converting the opportunity, but I couldn't have asked any more from the girls. I felt Argentina were really just defending, not offering much other than that, but they did that well."

Great Britain will now play in a bronze medal match against New Zealand and be the first squad to pick up a women's hockey medal since the Barcelona Olympics.

Meanwhile, Great Britain's men are through to the Olympic hockey semi-finals for the first time since 1988 following a controversial 1-1 draw with Spain.

Team GB needed just a point to progress from the group stage of the competition so the draw was good enough although Spanish players objected to two late penalty corners being overturned.

Britain will now play the Netherlands today and will be hoping their can spoil the Dutch team's unbeaten record in the tournament. 

"We fancy our chances against the Dutch," said player Ashley Jackson.

"They've had a great tournament. They're top of their pool. Hopefully the tough games we've had here will put us in better stead. I know it's going to be a tough game."

It was recently confirmed that the EuroHockey Championships, which will take place in August 2015, will be held at the Olympic Park - making central London hotels ideal for those wanting to watch the action.
