Hockey: Slough slump to hosts' rout
Today they will play Edinburgh Ladies for the bronze medal. The Scots, thanks to goals from Val Neil and Alison Grant, scored a surprise 2-1 win against Rot Weiss Cologne.
Slough never recovered after conceding a goal in the eighth minute to the Argentinian centre-forward Vanina Oneto, the first of her three goals. The Dutch quickly moved into a three-goal lead before Jane Smith pulled one back for Slough, who trailed 6-1 at half-time. Smith scored a second and Sarah Kelleher a third for the English champions but by now the Dutch had taken their total to eight.
Beeston, with goals from Scott Cordon and James Edington, drew 2-2 with Lille in Amstelveen in the men's club championship and, like Slough, will play to stay in the A Division.
There was no such luck for Clifton in the Cup-Winners' Cup in Terrassa where they drew 1-1 with Lithuanian side Vaivorykste-Gintra and will also play off to defend England's place in the A Division.
In Buenos Aires, England assured themselves a place in today's final against the host's A squad with a 3-0 win over Argentina B in the Four Nations tournament. Calum Giles kept up his scoring run when he shot England into the lead from a penalty corner. Two minutes later the Southgate forward was upended by the Argentina goalkeeper, with Russell Garcia scoring England's second from the resulting penalty stroke.
England won plenty of possession and it was at another penalty corner from which Ben Sharpe scored their third.
