Irish hockey team overcome Italians
04 Mar 2015 11:11
Ireland topped their World League round two group with a third straight win in San Diego, seeing off Italy 2-0 despite being slightly wasteful with their many chances.
Eugene Magee’s early goal and a Shane O’Donoghue strike in the closing ten minutes saw Craig Fulton’s side home as they dominated the possession and territory stakes against the tournament’s lowest-ranked side.
They did get off to a dream start when Magee, in the fifth minute, deflecting in a cross from captain for the day Mitch Darling.
From there, Ireland overwhelmed Italy for the most part but could not add more goals to go with their superiority with the final ball sometimes too forced to create clear cut chances.
