Junior womens hockey team wins

8:13 am on 13 August 2009

The New Zealand junior womens hockey team has finished second round pool play at their World Cup in Boston with a 3-2 victory over South Africa.

South Africa led 1-nil at half time.

The result moves New Zealand up to 4th in their group, but with other matches still to be played today they could drop back to 5th and therefore play-off with India for 9th place at the tournament.
