Our women start their HWL 2 tournament in West Vancover in a couple of hours.

We are the highest ranked team and should win this, but played poorly in a couple of warm up matches- losing 3-1 to Canada in the last one. Let's hope for a good start against Uruguay today.

We beat Uruguay 4-2 in extra time and Belarus 1-0. Starting with 2 wins but not really convincing ones.

Yes, not a great start for the new coach. We are going to meet Canada in the semi final. Only the finalists progress to the next stage in the WC qualification process. We lost 3-1 to Canada last week in a warm up game. So we need a big improvement in performance, otherwise we are going to be eliminated.

After some mediocre results, we finally got a good performance in the semi final. We beat Belarus 4-0 and will play Chile in the final today.

And we also qualify for world group semi finals which is one step closer to qualifying for world league final and 2018 world cup.

We won the HWL 2 by beating Chile in a penalty shoot out after the teams tied 1-1.
Really pleased to see us take the title, but the results and performances weren't too impressive. We played 4 matches, beating Belarus twice and drew with Uruguay and Chile, getting wins in these 2 matches via a shoot out.
To progress up the rankings, we need to be beating this level of competition more convincingly. I didn't get to see any of the matches, but our PC attempts are not really a threat.

Interesting article by our new coach:

Agree with him regarding the lack of mental and physical strength.
