Argentina beat India in FIH Pro League

Antwerp: Argentina’s women continued their impressive form in the FIH Hockey Pro League with a convincing 5-0 win over India.

Las Leonas dominated the match throughout, and were it not for a strong outing from Devi Kharibam Bichu in India’s goal, the scoreline could have been far worse.

Agustina Gorzelany put Argentina ahead with a 13th minute penalty corner, and Valentina Raposo made it 2-0 from a classy penalty corner variation in the 24th minute.

Argentina continued to apply pressure throughout the second half. Victoria Miranda bagged her first senior international goal from open play in the 41st minute, and Julieta Jankunas added an exquisite reverse stick field goal.

Jankunas grabbed her second to complete the scoring after India had a 16-yard hit turned over in the 59th minute.
