Kaieteur News – The Guyana Hockey Board (GHB) women’s side had a tough outing at the 2021 Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF) Challenge Cup, losing all four of their group matches heavily.
The team would’ve been crippled late on to the loss of their two most senior and prolific forwards in Gabriella Xavier and Sonia Jardine but still set out with high optimism.
Following their opening two losses on Friday, Guyana lost their other two matches in similarly devastating fashion yesterday.
The first loss yesterday was against 13-0 result against Canada with Kathleen Leahy scoring four and Allisson Lee with four being the top scorers.
In their second and final group round-robin match, the Guyanese ladies showed the most resilience but eventually lost 7-1 to Uruguay with Captain Marzana Fiedtkou scoring what turned out to be the third goal for Guyana in four matches. Constanza Barrandeguy netted a hat-trick for the Uruguayans.
On day one (Friday), Team Guyana lost 20-2 to USA with Rose Hope leading the charge for the North American side with six goals, while Abosaide Cadogan managed the two consolation for the Guyanese, a Field Goal (FG) and a Penalty Corner (PC) each, for the Guyanese.
In Friday’s second game, Guyana were looking to get a win and recover from the 20-2 defeat against the United States and also take revenge from the last game in which they faced the South Americans, which was in 2017 for this same tournament at home (Cliff Anderson Sports Hall) where Argentina had won 3-0.
The Argentine girls struck quickly and at the beginning they took the lead thanks to a goal from Carina Guzmán and then from Zanni and Gomes on two occasions. At the end of the first quarter Zanni scored again, but this time with a penalty stroke. Thus the first 10 minutes ended 5-0 in favor of Argentina.
The script remained the same through the match with the Argentines eventually won 14-0.
