Women's team beat Belgium 2-0 for first home win in FIH Pro League

GB WOMEN TAKE FIRST HOME WIN IN FIHPL

Great Britain 2

Balsdon (43', PC)

Owsley (53', FG)

 

Belgium 0

 

Superb goals from Grace Balsdon and Lily Owsley earned Great Britain's women their first FIH Pro League win in London.

 

Having been unlucky to only take a point from Argentina on Saturday, Mark Hager's side were impressive again, and put in an excellent display to take all three points.

 

Britain were dominant throughout but found Belgian keeper Aisling D'Hooghe in superb form, especially in the first half when GB made 19 circle entries. However the deadlock was broken when Grace Balson lashed home a superb penalty corner on her 50th international appearance.

 

And with time ticking, the hugely impressive Lily Owsley capped her performance with a stunning goal, running from halfway before smacking home with seven minutes to go.

 

The win took GB up into sixth in the table, and with more key matches to come - especially at home - they will be looking to make further inroads in this year's inaugural FIH Pro League.

 

Great Britain: Tennant (GK), Unsworth, Toman, Ansley, Pearne-Webb (c), Balsdon, Costello, Jones, Evans, Defroand, Owsley, Hunter, Petty, Robertson, Petter, Martin, Townsend

Unused: Heesh (GK)
