March 27, 2010

From FIH

The second day of the ATAHolding Qualifier began with Canada and
Korea. Korea started off with possession of the ball and quickly earned
a penalty corner that was blocked by Canada’s keeper Azelia Liu. Korea
did score off their next penalty corner off a lifted shot by Sookyung
Lee; that gave Korea the 1-0 lead in the ninth minute.

Throughout the first half, Korea continued to maintain ball
possession and control of the match. Korea almost went ahead around the
29th minute, but had the goal called back due to a foot
infraction. One minute later, however, Korea’s Mihyun Park put in a
valid score that put Korea ahead 2-0 over Canada; that held at halftime

Korea kept their control of the match in the second half. Behind
Liu’s strong saves, Korea had just a hard of time in the second half
converting multiple penalty corners. Korea finally got on the board in
the 47th minute of a Jonghee Kim field goal, making the score 3-0 against Canada. In the 56th
minute, Mihyun Park scored again to give Korea a four goal advantage.
Off two penalty corners (four minutes apart), Korea’s Seul Ki Cheon
blasted high shots to guide Korea to a 6-0 win over Canada.
