A battling, intense match saw South Africa and Ireland win a point apiece after they drew the second pool B match of the Champions Challenge 1 in Glasgow 2-2. 

South Africa got off to a cracking start when Sulette Damon (11') was gifted a simple tap-in at the post. The Ireland coach, Graham Shaw will be unhappy with his side's defending as the ball found its way through a number of players en route to goal and came after the players in green had created several chances that they had failed to convert.

Ireland defender Shirley McCay left the field with a nasty facial injury shortly before half time, but this seemed to galvanise her team and, in the dying seconds of the half, Ireland fought back and made inroads into the South Africa circle. However, goalkeeper Anelle van Deventer was equal to the challenge and the half ended 1-0. 

The second half saw Ireland come back into the game though a great combination between Naomi Carroll and Anna O'Flanagan (44). Carroll found an unmarked O'Flanagan with a pin point pass and the forward was able to fire home and equal the scoreline.

Minutes later, South Africa restored their lead when Dirkie Chamberlain (49') got a touch on a cross from Lilian du Plessis, but the respite for the women in yellow and green lasted only a few minutes before Audrey O'Flynn (58') scored from a penalty corner to make it 2-2.

Both teams pressured their opponent's goal, but were unable to deliver the killer goal. Ireland's goal scorer, Audrey O'Flynn admitted that the 'intense game could have gone either way."
