Black Sticks run over Belgium in warm up
The Black Sticks Women have defeated Belgium 8-0 in a non-official practice game
The Black Sticks Women have begun their build up for the Women’s Hockey Champions Trophy with an 8-0 win over Belgium in a non-official practice game.
Brooke Neal scored a hat-trick and Olivia Merry a double in a match that allowed both sides to try out new tactics and set piece moves, with the result not going on official records.
It was a timely shake-up for New Zealand ahead of tomorrow’s one-off test against world number one Netherlands, which will be a much bigger challenge.
