Pool C

Ireland 3 (A O’Flanagan 2, Z Malseed) Italy 0

Ireland finished their EuroHockey Championship campaign with a flourish as Anna O’Flanagan’s double underpinned a strong victory over Italy. She gave her side the lead in the second quarter when her sharp volley, following on from Róisín Upton’s cross, found the net. And she weighed in with the next in the third quarter, a close-range finish from Sarah Hawkshaw’s powerful run and cross. Zara Malseed completed the scoring in the final quarter when she deflected in a pass from Katie Mullan. It left the Green Army in sixth place overall while Italy ended their week in eight place overall.

Ireland – Italy 3-0 (1-0)

27’ 1-0 Anna O’Flanagan (FG)

42’ 2-0 Anna O’Flanagan (FG)

47’ 3-0 Zara Malseed (FG)

England 3 (L Owsley 2, I Petter) Scotland 1 (M Bell)

England got the result they needed to copper-fasten fifth place and their World Cup ticket with a 3-1 win over neighbours Scotland with Lily Owsley scoring on the double. Needing a draw, Izzy Petter set them on their way with a close range finish after Owsley’s fine work down the left baseline. But the Scots hit back just before half-time when Amy Costello’s powerful hit was touched in behind her back by McKenzie Bell. There were only 72 seconds to go to half-time at that stage but England still had time to win a corner and go back in front via Owsley from a corner move. Owsley then made the game safe from close-in as Ellie Rayer’s touch fell her way. Scotland finish in seventh place as a result with both countries set to play in the Euro 2023 qualifiers next summer.

England – Scotland 3-1 (2-1)

3’ 1-0 Isabelle Petter (FG)

29’ 1-1 McKenzie Bell (FG)

30’ 2-1 Lily Owsley (PC)
