Hockey: Clewlow keeps Britain in game with crucial equaliser
Wednesday 13 August 2008
Great Britain women kept alive their medal hopes after coming from behind to draw 2-2 with Argentina at a sunny Olympic Green Hockey Stadium. Having been hammered 5-1 by defending Olympic champions Germany in their opening match, GB could not have afforded another defeat in Pool B.
With only two nations progressing to the semi-finals, Danny Kerry's side still have plenty to do and must rely on Argentina or Germany dropping points. After Argentina had gone two up, the Leicester midfielder Helen Richardson's reverse-stick shot was tipped in by Sarah Thomas and then Canterbury's Mel Clewlow equalised with another set-piece.
