Arnhem - The world No 12 South African women’s hockey team were shaded 4-3 by the world’s third-ranked Germany in a one-off Test match here in Holland on Monday night.
“We could have got a better result against a German squad that was only missing two players,” said SA assistant coach Phil Estourgie.  “We were missing more players due to injury or players not being in Holland yet.”
South Africa’s forwards scored three goals from field play, Western Province’s Kathleen Taylor, North West’s Sulette Damons and world record goalscorer Pietie Coetzee of Southern Gauteng getting on the scoresheet. It was the superstar’s 226th goal in 228 Test matches.
Although 19 of South Africa top players are plying their trade with clubs in Holland, a number are still at home or injured. SA play world No 1 Holland on November 22 and 23 and move to Argentina for two 4-Nations competitions in December.
