A saved penalty by the Spanish goalkeeper meant honours were even at the end of this pool B match. The match was a tense affair, with both sides chasing three points. South Africa would have been expecting to get a result after watching Spain's previous two games. However, the Spanish side came out fighting and within a short time the South Africa team found themselves under pressure. "We are getting better with every game," said Spain coach Adrian Lock, "and today we played well for both halves, which didn't happen in the earlier game against Ireland."

Despite the Spanish revival, it was the Red Sticks goalkeeper Maria Lopez de Eguilaz Zubiria who was the first 'keeper to be called into action, and there was a red-faced moment when confusion between captain Rocio Ybarra and Zubiria nearly let the South Africa forwards in on goal.

For most of the first half it was Spain who were dominant, particularly on the right-hand side of the field. Maria Lopez (26') opened the scoring after she latched onto a pass from the right and slotted past Annelle van Deventer in the South Africa goal. As the half came to a close, Lisa-Marie Deetclef (33') was able to even things up with a shot following a penalty corner. 

The second half was a story of missed opportunities as both teams seemed to struggle to put together meaningful attacks. Unforced errors were common as both teams chased the winning goal. South Africa captain Marsha Cox had the chance to win the game when her side were awarded a penalty corner, but Zubiria pulled off a save and the teams shared the points. South Africa's Sulette Damons said that her team had not taken their chances. "We are disappointed with that performance," she added.
