Ireland 4-0 Belarus
-
Ireland secured a 4-0 victory over Belarus in the Eurohockey Championships II semi-final to earn themselves a spot in the final and promotion to the top division in European hockey.
-
The Green Army dominated a game that at times lacked fluidity and required focused defending from both sides.
-
Naomi Carroll scored Ireland’s first goal in the eighth minute, a simple tap in and her fourth of the tournament.
-
Megan Frazer created several chances throughout the game and was rewarded with a goal in the 22nd minute.
-
Shirley McCay made it 3-0 six minutes later as she swept the ball goalward during a penalty-corner routine. McCay also earned her 208th cap for Ireland today, equalling Nikki Symmons record as the most capped woman in Irish hockey history.
-
The second half saw a period of increased pressure from the Belarussian side but McFerran showed her ever-increasing experience to keep a clean sheet.
-
An intricate link-up between Katie Mullan and Chloe Brown in the circle should have ended up in the back of the net but the final goal didn’t come until the 64th minute, courtesy of Brown who scored her third goal of the campaign.
