Draw for Great Britain against South Africa
16 Jan 2008 07:24

Great Britain played the third of their four matches in their tour of South Africa, drawing with the hosts 1-1 before the final game against Canada tomorrow. Matt Daly put the visitors ahead in the first half, but Tsolekille Lungi saved the draw for the home side with a 56th minute field goal.

In a scrappy first half, Daly’s opener came after a flowing move down the right hand side which involved Ben Hawes, Rob Moore and Jonty Clarke.  Clarke delivered the ball across face of goal which fell behind the goalkeeper, but Matt Daly dived athletically to fire home for a 1-0 lead at half time.

Lungi levelled for South Africa in the 56th minute and with no other goals, the match ended 1-1.  Great Britain survived the last 10 minutes with only 10 men after Glenn Kirkham received a yellow card in the 60th minute.

In an even game, neither side was awarded any penalty corners and a 1-1 draw was a fair result.
