The New Zealand Under 21 Men have finished on a high after a dominant 4-1 result over South Africa at the Junior World Cup.<br>
<br>
The Kiwis were in control from the opening whistle in the 9<sup>th</sup>/10<sup>th</sup> classification playoff, lifted by a double from Man of the Match Mac Wilcox.<br>
<br>
South Africa lifted after halftime but the damage had already been done with New Zealand pouring on all four goals in the first half.<br>
<br>
Wilcox opened the scoring in the 12<sup>th</sup> minute after pouncing on a penalty corner deflection and slapping a hard shot past the goalkeeper.<br>
<br>
Three minutes later Wilcox doubled the lead when he received a great pass across the circle from Oliver Logan to hit into goal.<br>
<br>
New Zealand opened a three goal buffer from a 19<sup>th</sup> minute penalty corner with Dominic Newman slapping past the keeper from out wide.<br>
<br>
Dylan Thomas made it 4-0 just before halftime after a long ball saw the South Africa defenders exposed for Thomas to beat the goalkeeper with a skilful left to right move.<br>
<br>
South Africa played a much better second half defensively and managed to score a goal midway through the third quarter through Courtney Halle.<br>
<strong><br>
NEW ZEALAND 4:</strong> (Mac Wilcox 2, Dominic Newman, Dylan Thomas)<br>
<strong>SOUTH AFRICA 1:</strong> (Courtney Halle)<br>
Halftime: New Zealand 4-0<br>
