Leonas defeat New Zealand 3-2

NAPIER, New Zealand — Argentina earned its third win in a row yesterday at the the Hawke’s Bay Festival in Hastings beating the host 3-2.

All locked at 2-2 with the clock ticking down, both sides scrambled and dived for the winning goal and it was Carla Rebecchi who found the net and gave her side the victory with three minutes to go.

In what was a fantastic display of hockey from both sides, New Zealand worked hard in the second half to pull back a 2-0 deficit after Delfina Merino and captain Luciana Aymar got the visitors ahead.

The Black Sticks’ discipline and never-say-die attitude paid off when Anita Punt scored her third goal of the tournament and captain Kayla Whitelock added to it 10 minutes later.

The Leonas will next meet China tomorrow.

In earlier games, South Korea beat Japan 3-2 while Australia defeated China 4-0.
