Argentina Women’s Hockey team defeat Belgium in their second Pro League match

0 : Argentina Hockey

Dragflick Newsdesk : Another time it was a hockey party at the National Center for High Performance Sports. With full stands and a full sun, the Argentine team ratified his very good moment and achieved his second win against Belgium in the framework of the team’s second presentation in the FIH Pro League. The 3 to 1 was “short” because the dominance of the winner was absolute for most of the 60 minutes of play.

Argentina took control of the game from the start, with a good movement of the ball by their midfielders and with aggressiveness in their forwards. However, on their first all-out attempt, Belgium went on to open the scoring. In the 11th minute the Belgians earned the first of their two penalty corners and Lucie Breyne overcame Barbieri’s lunge, Succi’s replacement on goal.

From that moment the domain was much more evident. Argentina grew and thanks to the bullfights and the skill of Albertarrio and Granatto the shorts began to follow one another. One after another. However, Gorzelany’s drag, combinations with Costa and a deflection by Trinchinetti were not enough to overcome D’Hooghe. So they went to rest. With Belgium up on the scoreboard but with a national team willing to turn history upside down.

Las Leonas started with everything in the second half and after 2 minutes Agustina Gorzelany arrived to put the expected partial tie. If Argentina had not been desperate to reach that equality, less did it to get up on the scoreboard. With a lot of patience and defensive order, at 13 minutes he had the chance again with the fixed and Gorzelany did not fail.

From that moment everything was much easier because Belgium, without ideas, had to go out and find the result and the winner had more space to attack. A new short -there were ten in total-, one minute from closing, allowed Gorzelany to signal his “hat trick” to become the great figure of a victory that gave the Olympic runner-up three points to continue dreaming in the FIH Pro League.
