Kiwis ready to roll at Junior World Cup

The Kiwis are ready to roll at the Women’s Junior Hockey World Cup which runs from 24th November – 5th December in the Chilean capital city of Santiago.

Sixteen of the best young women’s teams in the world will compete for the title at the vast multi-sport Club Deportivo Manquehue complex, which plays host to 10 days of high speed action featuring the next generation of global hockey stars.

With four teams fighting it out for two available quarter-final places in each of the four pools, every single match has meaning and one slip-up could prove costly. 

The New Zealand Under 21 side is a young and talented group spearheaded by 20-year-old Auckland defender Maddison Dowe, who has played four tests for the Black Sticks.

Along with Dowe, a further three players are members of the New Zealand Development Squad including Stephanie Dickins, Tessa Jopp and Phoebe Steele.

New Zealand are looking to push deep into the tournament after battling Belgium, China and Spain in pool play.

The Men’s Junior World Cup will be played in Lucknow, India from 8-18 December.
