Both the USA and South Africa enjoyed periods of dominance in this pool B match, but it was South Africa's better finishing and an unfortunate slip in front of goal that separated the teams and left South Africa 2-1 winners.

The USA started their second match of pool B in a mirror image of their first game. Katie O'Donnell (12') scoring from open play after a period of sustained pressure on the South Africa defence. The remainder of the half was a game of end-to-end hockey with both teams showing a lot of attacking flair, but no clinical finishing in front of the goal.

Melissa Gonzalez and Paige Selenski were both instrumental in building up USA attacks down the right-hand side of the pitch, with Marsha Cox and Quanita Bobbs working hard to create opportunities in the South Africa midfield.

Lisa-Marie Deetlefs (45') put South Africa back in the game with a penalty corner, but the green and gold team were lucky not to fall behind almost immediately when a defensive error put Paige Selenski through on goal. Her shot went wide as she slipped while striking.

The severity of that miss was highlighted when Lilian du Plessis (50') put South Africa ahead after a well-taken goal left the Jackie Kintzer stranded in the USA goal.
