Russia 2, Ukraine 0

Russia won its second game with a 2-0 decision against the Ukraine at the Electric Ireland FIH Road to London Tournament, putting itself in position to potentially vie for the bronze medal on the final day.

It was a relatively low key game between the two games that are out of contention for a ticket to London. Nevertheless, Russia continues to look stronger with each outing at the event, while winless Ukraine is looking run down.

Yaroslav Loginov netted a goal the first half and Aleksander Patonov tipped in the insurance goal in the waning minutes of regulation to seal the 2-0 win. Although it was a one-goal affair for much of the game, Ukraine rarely threatened the Russian net in the one-sided game.

Russia has a tough game on Saturday against top-seeded Korea, but it looks like regardless of the outcome of that game, the Russians should be playing for bronze on Sunday, while Ukraine is locked into the 5th-place game no matter how they fare against Chile on Saturday.
