After 4 wins earlier in the week, Belgium were already sure of winning the competition and the qualification for the next round of the Hockey world League. They were however going for a full hand and pushed the Poles back on their heels from the opening whistle. Poland held their ground for a while, survived the first Tom Boon’s penalty-corner but had to concede a penalty-stroke after 15 minutes of play, Jerome Dekeyser leaving absolutely no chance to Arkadiusz Matuszak in the Polish goal.

Dekeyser doubled his tally shortly after and completed a hat-trick within 20 minutes. With the final result not any more in doubt, pace of play abated a few notches. Belgium scored 2 more goals to reach the break with a comfortable lead (5-0).

Second period was played without much passion by either team, or by the crowd, just trying to stay warm in the chilly afternoon. Poland had a good surge halfway through the period and Mateusz Hulboj scored with a sumptuous shot under the crossbar, but Belgium cruised to an easy 10-1 victory, with 4 goals for Jerome Dekeyser and 3 for top scorer of the competition Tom Boon.

Belgium were clearly the better team of the competition and did not falter to finish with 5 wins, only having some trouble in the close encounter against host France (3-2). Poland finished the week with only one win, against Portugal (9-1), and will be especially disappointed to have lost against Scotland (after a shoot-out), a team 4 spots lower than them in the World Rankings.
