Korea – Germany 1-4 (half-time: 1-2)

Germany’s Lisa Hahn lifted her team to a seventh-place finish in this Olympics with a two-goal performance to power Germany past Korea, 4-1 Despite the silver-lining win today, seventh place still ties Germany’s lowest Olympic finish.

Hahn opened the scoring six minutes into action when veteran Natascha Keller set up a perfect play for Hahn who was waiting by the post for the 1-0 goal. Korea was quick to even things up, converting a penalty corner just two minutes later. Cheon Seul Ki fired in a rocket to the upper corner for the emphatic tying goal.

Again Hahn was there to put Germany back on top. With the goalkeeper faked and covering the wrong corner of the net, Hahn had plenty of time to flip in the go-ahead goal, again from her favorite spot by the post.

Fanne Rinne opened up the lead and gave Germany some breathing room with 15 minutes to go in the game with her penalty corner shot that bounced in off a Korean stick. It was clear after the goal, owning a 3-1 lead, that the Germans would go on to earn the win. Marie Maevers put the icing on the cake in the win with her diving effort that brought the final to 4-1

Korea’s eighth-place finish is on par with their last three Olympic appearances, where the nation has two ninth-place finishes and one seventh-place. The seventh-place finish is clearly below Germany’s expectations, but at least the Germans could send Keller off with a win should she decide to end her international career after these Games.
